I have been doing some research and have been looking on the car for the fuse block. Am I just over looking it or does it not even have one.

The lights are on a circuit breaker mounted on the headlight switch. The heater fan has an inline fuse, and the radio has its inline fuse. The instruments and courtesy lights have circuit breakers on the back of the instrument cluster and---there isn't anything else.

If your car came through with no radio or heater, there would not be a fuse on the whole car. Enjoy the simplicity.

That's not a stupid question. It's a very good question and given all the live power wires floating around in those indicates why a disconnect switch is a good idea if your car has weathered wiring.

Agree, but..... Granted the chances of a car that came thru without a radio and heater probably did not have other options but in the off chance there was an overdrive, that would be the sole fuse in the car.

If you look in the literature archive you can find the schematic for your car. As others have said, depending on the options you have, the wiring will change. Depending on what option, you may have wiring going to the component, but no component. Or if you have the option, the wires may run separately instead of in the main harness.
