1990 Ford E150 Van: Where is the Engine electrical fuse box located?

Asked by Nov 05, 2016 at 01:46 AM about the 1990 Ford E-150 XL Econoline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've looked in the shop manual, at the owner's manual, online-both
here and other forums-at YouTube videos, called 3 mechanics, and had
2 mechanics here helping me, and we cannot find the fusebox in this
van!

PROBLEM:
Van won't start. There is NO click when you turn the key.

SYMPTOMS:
The headlights go on brightly. It will not jumpstart from another car.  

FACTS:
Battery is new and fully charged.
The Van is in Park.
The starter solenoid is new. I replaced it myself a year ago.
The starter works fine (see below)

SUSPECT:
60A fuse in mysterious fuse box. Per fuse box diagram.
Ignition Switch

I have located 2 fuse boxes obvious in the front driver's side, to the left
of the steering wheel. They have small fuses, nothing nearly as big as  
the 60A fuse required.

The YouTube videos both show the fuse box to be located in the same
area but on the opposite side from battery, which is on the Passenger's
side.
I've also heard it might be under the "dog house" So that was pulled
and NOPE it's not that.
or in the lower steering column? Only if there's at the most 7 fuses in
there and they're wee small.
It's also not to the right where a glove box would be if it had one...


I have not looked under the battery tray.


I don't know if it's really an XL Econoline.
It's a Pebble Beach edition (??) and has a couch/bed conversion etc.
