Electrical problem with 99 camry 4 cyl.

My Car has would not start, so I taught it was the battery. So I replaced battery. Within 3 days I had the same problem Car did not start. I taught it was the alternator problem. So I removed the alternator and took it to AutoZone. They tested the equipment and confirmed it was fine. Now I took the Starter Solenoid to the AutoZone and they confirmed that it was the one that is faulty. So i replaced the Starter. Now The Car starts but I HAVE A BIG PROBLEM.

I have no lights on the instrument panel when turn the ignition, No Clock, No radio, Cannot shift the gear, Power seat not working, Fan and A/C not working, indicators not working, brake lights not working. Key less entry not working.

Only Headlights and hazards (yield lights) and horn are working.

I believe some master fuse might have blown away but I could not find where the master fuse is? . There were 3 fuse boxes, 2 in the hood and 1 under the steering. Is there any specific naming notation for the master fuse for all Auxiliary stuff? Please help.

So can you please help me to fix problem?

Thanks in advance

7.5 amp Panel fuse is probably blown. Its on the left side (Driver side) under the dash. Did you disconnect the battery when removing the alternator and starter?

I did disconnect the battery before removing the alternator and starter. Strange thing is that, When i first removed the alternator and fixed it back, I had the same symptons mentioned earlier. I taught, as there is no power every thing was down. But after replacing the starter the problem still exits. I will check the Panel fuse 7.5 amp. Will this Panel fuse take are of all my issues. Please clarify.

Thanks In advance.

Fixed the problem

Found the problem . The Main Fuse 100Amp is blown, which is located in the main Fuse box the description says ALT which is quite confusing.

After I replaced the fuse with the Toyota's 100 amp fuse and every thing is working fine.
