USA Can't Find The Fuse Box, HELP!!!

EDIT: Okay I found the fuse box under the dash tonight and TRIPLE checked the fuse for the cig lighter, to my surprise it's in perfect condition. So I plugged in my radar detector and started the car, it didn't work. Then I plugged in my Magellan GPS, again it doens't work. So what could be the problem? It obviously's not the fuse right?

I have a problem with my 91 MR2. Tonight I blew the fuse of my cigarette lighter and I've been trying to locate the fuse box to replace the fuse. I know there's a fuse box under the hood (not the one), a fuse box in the engine bay (not the one either) and one under the dash. However I took the plastic door sill off, the big plastic piece under the steering wheel off and I STILL can't find the damn fuse box! Can someone tell me just how I can locate it so I can replace the fuse?

It's on the side, not under the steering wheel. It's behind the frunk release handle. Hope you're flexible, it's a tough one to get to.

Maybe a bad connection somewhere. It might be a lot of work to figure it out. Do you have a voltage meter? You could see if it's getting juice or not. Other than that, I don't know. Good luck!

is it just the cigarette lighter or other things as well? The cigarette lighter, clock and stereo all run on another fuse in the frunk.
