Fuse box diagram

I am having some problems hooking accessories to the fuse box. Previous owner used the fuse box quite a few times hooking wires directly to it for power. Trying to reconnect some things and having problems. It appears half the fuses have power and half do not. Is that possible? Also, playing with the fuses all of a sudden the car will not start. Turn key and nothing like the battery is drained. Any idea what might cause the car to not start? Also, it would help if I had a fuse box layout diagram. Any chance you might have one of those?
Do you
have the same problem?

Could be you have a loose wire at the back of the fuse box at #13, it is a dedicated fuse for the ignition. Here is the fuse layout for box inside the car:

Not sure I follow where #13 is. Is it in the fuse box inside the car or under the hood? Also, the diagram of the fuse box has 17 fuses, I only have 12 should I have 17 fuses? I tried to take pictures of my boxes.

It is like I have no power in the fuse box. I am trying to hook a hot wire to the fuse box and cannot find any.

Okay, no power at any fuse inside the car, first thing is remove all non factory hook-ups to that fuse panel inside the car, then open the hood, and test the fuse links in the fuse box under the hood. They are right where the positive battery cable connects to it.

Most of them look like fuses but quite a few do not. How would I check those? Replace each one with a new one? Is the number one fusible link outside the main box?

I appreciate the help. I found it. It was a 40 amp fuse in the box under the hood. Cannot believe one fuse controls that much.

These are hard to blow, usually it is a maxi-fuse, and the way your inside box was abused, it took some doing to blow the fuse!
