fuse for dash lights (97 f150) blown?

My dash and radio lights are out.
Initial look at fuses shows they are all good.

Am I looking at the right fuses (in the Power Distirubution Box)? A relay? What size, location would this fuse be?

What is the small fuse box containing a single row of about 6-8 fuses right behind main fuse box? I fumbled it's cover down into the body while looking for the bad dash light fuse?

Thanks in advance
Bill

Instrument illumination is fuse 18 in the interior fuse panel. The cover has the locations numbered. It will be a 5 amp fuse.

Did someone turn the dash light dimmer all the way down?

Naw that never happens.. Like the many who have their cars towed in because the battery ran down and I found the dome lamp switch locked on. :O

I have a 30 amp fuse in location#18.

I've got a 5 amp fuse in spot #1, but it is fine. Except I just dropped it into an unreachable spot below the fuse box---dooh!)

97 f150.

Fuse 18 in the power distribution box or the interior fuse panel?

Left side of dash, a pull out panel, and the cover pulls off with fuses under it. Cover is numbered.

I found the interior fuse panel. My cover does not have the numbered locations listed on it.

Funny thing, this morning the dash lights work again! (I never actually verfied the 5amp fuse in #18 interior panel was good).

What does the small (6 slot) fuse panel behind the PDB serve? That's where I dropped the 5amp fuse from slot #1.

Thanks.

P.S.
Is there a website where I can see information about fuse locations and what they serve?
