Re: fuses in 89 200qt

Dear Joe..thanks for the reply..I agree that the numbering from group A to group B 
leaves much to be desired in this fuse box. However the only group B fuses I have are 
fro Motor Diagnostics and Memory seats. Not only are the rest empty(no fuses) they are 
not even slotted to accept fuses. Somewhere in this car is a 5 amp fuse which controls 
my mirrors and instrument cluster. It is not in the fuse box. I even had the fuse box 
taken off to see if it was somehow inadvertantly jammed below. All fuses visible in the 
box are good. 

Any other suggestions?
