Open the hood and on the right hand side there is a black box. Thats where the fuses are located. I also have the same model. I take a picture of it and posted in a few hrs when my sis get back with the car. I have the same model. One question i had related to this topic is how do you check if you have a blown fuse in there? I opened it up and it looks fine but some lights in the interior do not work for me, ex. the heater wheels and temp wheel lights. At least from the outside everything looks good but not sure the proper way to check a fuse. thanks

A continuity tester is the easiest, runs a low voltage to a light, no light no circuit.

Check the dimmer switch on the back of the headlight switch. The dash lights draw power from there and if it has been turned all the way down, they will be out. Faults are also commoin in the switch.
