Where's the fuse?

I have a 1998 Toyota Corolla I got from my mom's estate when she died. There is no user's manual. The radio, side mirrors and clock do not work. I found three fuse boxes under the hood, but none of the fuses were bad. There must be another fuse box/panel somewhere.

Have you checked under the instrument panel - drivers side?

I would check under the drivers side dash or in the drivers door jam.

seen them in the glove box before. Sometimes removal of the "box" is required to access them.

Hiding & Peeking

I've looked under the dashboard on the driver's and passenger's side. They must have hidden it well, or put something over it.
I'll check behind the glove box because it isn't 'in' the glove box.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I believe there is a flip out coin tray to the left of the steering column in the knee pad. if you remove that, it should be behind it.

Fuse Found!

In addition to the 3 fuse boxes in the engine compartment, there is an additional one inside the car as well. After suggestions to look for it under the dashboard on either side, driver & passenger, were ineffective, a further search was finally successful. There is a coin tray on the driver's side under the instrument panel marked "Storage Only". If you squeeze the sides of the tray and remove it, there is another fuse panel behind it.

I guess it would be too much if the actually labeled it as "fuses behind this "storage only" tray.

good to hear.
