Yes I found the fuse box. (Driver's side dashboard side.) However the interior light fuse is not present. No space for it and no words that indicate it is even there. I also can't find the fuse for the lights. I have no low beams or tail lights. Brights work but won't stay in 'on' position.

Re: Fuses have me confused
If you have not low beams or tail lghts most likelly your head light switch is bad, and the light are not feed by a regular fuse
they have fusible link, that means a regular wire with built in fuse, if any thing happends the wire just burn a liitle part of it and prevent fire on harnes, this fusible link will be located by the starter solenoid atached to the batterie hot wire on starter coming from batterie or by the batterie, just pull gently on every wire i mention and if one come apart fix it,

Try looking on the side of the driver's side dashboard. In other words, open the driver door, and right there at the end side of the dashboard there may be a removable section; (a ''cover'' that looks the same as the dashboard material). There are fuses in there. There should also be an engine related fuse box under the hood on the side of one of the fenders. The inside fuse box is for stuff like accessories, brake lights, directional signals, etc... // It _is_ possible to only have one under the hood, but Ford usually has a second one on the driver side end of the dashboard. (Mine is 2004, so I'm not _certain_ of yours).
Check for a fuse box underneath the dashboard in the drivers side. Some times there is a plastic lever that needs to be pulled down in order for the fuse panel to swing down. Check your car manaul to see where the dasboard light fuse is located, some times the fuse can be located in the engine compartment where you will find a rather big black plastic box with relays and other fuses. Another fuse box location is found on the passenger side underneath the dashboard or kick panel, better to check the owners manual so you don't have to look into all 3 locations.
When you do find the right fuse block, look for a fuse that is labled Insturment Lights or Cluster Panel, that usually indicates the dashboard light fuse. The fuse used in most dashboard lights is around the 15 to 20 Amp range.
No promises but this is the only reference I could find for Hyundai where the fuse box was not behind a panel to the bottom side of steering wheel. It may inspire you to look elsewhere behind items. Good Luck.
"The interior fuse panel is located behind the coin holder pull out drawer, which is on the lower left side of the dashboard"
I would recommend checking the fuses for the dashboard lights. If no fuses are burned, there could be a possibility of the bulbs in the dash being burned. In any case, start by looking in the manual for fuses relating to dashboard/gauge cluster lights. Once you find out what fuse it should be go from there.
open your hood and on the driver side left off the battery should be a black box where you find more fuses. open it up and see if one of those fuses is blown. those fuses are bigger than the ones you have on the inside. the inside fuses are by the driver side on the side of the dashboard (open your driver side door and look on the side of the dash, there are other smaller fuses, too)
