Air conditioner not working

I replaced fuses, blower, resisters, relay. Air condition light doesn't come on. I didn't put in the 40 Amp fuse like it says on the diagram. When I installed all of these, it came on and felt air condition and the light came on, then when I turned off the car and turned it back on it didn't work at all. I was so excited when it came on but disappointed when It didn't work again. I have one 40 amp fuse, I see two spots for the 40 amp, but the plastic casing doesn't say what its used for. I might buy another one in the morning and put them both in? Successful first and then failure after I started the car again.
Do you

Good afternoon,

You replaced everything but you did not check any voltages.

do you have a voltmeter or test light to check voltages especially at the relay?

I attached a wire diagram for you. check the fuses and make sure there is voltage on both sides of the fuses with the key on.

I tested just the air condition part with key on and off but no light came on. I Have both. Light tester and multimeter. I just tested and found a lot of fuses dead, but in the morning I will test with the car on. I did it with the light under the hood and also under the steering wheel. I will get back to you as soon as I do that. Some worked and some no light. I will purchase some more fuses in the morning, just to be on the safe side. It is bound to be one of these. Hope so?

Used a test light on A/C and heater fuses with the car off and on. Not a single sign of life.

Under the steering wheel. I will try to get it to you. Thanks Roy. There is a 10 amp A/C and 40 amps for heating. One for the air conditioning system and HTR 40 A air conditioning system. Those are the ones I changed.

First three under the steering wheel. Last shot is under the hood fuse box. Not much of a camera man but tried. I will try again if you want but I had to do aerobatics along with juggling the camera with the light. The third picture is where I changed the fuses. 40 and 10 amps. Thank you again!

Good.

Did you check for power on both sides of the fuse with the key on?

With the motor running? Or just turn the key and see lights go on. If I do it again should I use the testing light?

It looks like you have an issue with the fuse box itself as that is what provides power to the 40 amp fuse.

Try wiggling around the connectors and see if you can get power to the fuse.

Wiggle the fuse? Or the wire to the fuse box?

I am wondering if I could replace the fusebox and how much it would cost to buy one?

The wires. See if wiggling them makes a difference.

The fuse box is a couple hundred dollars and the labor is 2 hours to change it.

With the key on engine off. Use the test light to check for power while wiggling the wires.
