I think our cars have 5pin though instead of 4... but practically the same method none-the-less if you don't want to go replacing fuses left in right...

Also Eric's is a bit of a cluster *, if you have some soldering skills it may be best to solder up a small test bench to make it easier so your not trying to juggle wires, lol...

Also it is best to remove each fuse and inspect it, they may not look damaged until you get a closer look, sometimes they can even look fine but be bad, it's a good idea to have a cheap $2 fuse tester laying around! :)
