Icon4 Need help finding a fuse!

Okay so I repainted my interior last weekend. When I was plugging everything back up to the radio bezel I accidently let the power and ground wire for the power adapter plug touch and I got a spark. Now it wont work. I looked in my manual, but couldn't find out which one it was. So I need some help!

I blew the fuse that the dash lights run through when I wired up my head unit the wrong way the first time. There's a second fuse panel on the passenger side by the floor. Dash lights was a 5 amp fuse. I can't say for sure if it was the ones on the bottom or the top as i somehow had two fuses blown. Hope that helps.

Either fuse 29 or 34. Both should be 20A.

34 is bottom right. Second in from right hand side on the bottom row.

29 is up one row and left one fuse.

EDIT: You should've been able to find this on page 138-139 in your manual. It should have the fuse diagram as well.

Well the online manual was a bit tricky. The fuse listings were on separate pages so it took me a minute to figure it out. The diagram and maybe 4 fuses are listed on one page, then a bunch of fuses on another, then finally like 4-5 fuses on the next page.

Confusing. But hopefully it's one of those. I almost did this when I put my carpet in except for it was the power wire on my CB.

No problem man. If your manual was an early printing it might not have had it.

I always use www.fleet.ford.com under the maintenance section to find manuals that are the newest. There's a third edition for the 2004 model year now. If you bought you truck in 03 or early 04 chances are it's not this third edition.
