Just doing some electrical work on Dadz and was suprised to find only 4 blade type fuses in the engine compartment fuse box!

Is there another fuse box I'm over looking?

There are also a couple more under the dash on the firewall behind the glove compartment.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

A lot of guys that do installation of after market alarm / immobilizer / central-locking units like to fit the unit behind the LHS kick panel and tap into that circuit behind the glove box, so check there first if you're having any problems with those units.
