Car: Oldsmobile 1988 Delta 88, 6-cyl engine, AT, power seats,
windows, and locks.
The 88 seems to run fine, but there seem to be several gaps between
slots 1-12 in the fuse panel that cause me concern.
I no longer have the owner's manual, and the sticker on the door to
the fuse panel is halfway torn off (and taking with it the fuse sizes
and purpose for fuses 1-12.)
Does anyone know, or could they post, the listing of what size fuse
should go into each slot and their purpose?
Is any anything on the car not (obviously) working? Windows, locks, coutesy
lamps, heater/AC blower, blinkers, etc...
I honestly can't say about your particular vehicle, but I have seen many
vehicles with empty fuse slots. Take a close look with a flash light... are
there even any metal terminals in the slots? It's not uncommon to see empty
slots that don't even have terminals in there.

The two main things I can think of are:
-Window wipers working, but washer fluid not spraying out (always
-No beeping noise when turn signal left on too long, lights left on
when ignition turned off, or keys left in ignition when door open.
-(possibly some dashboard lights not working? I do know the Service
Engine Soon light NEVER fails to come on at least 2 times a year,
though :) )
When I was fiddling around tonight I noticed the 13+ range of slots
was missing a fuse that was for IIRC a Fuel Light, so I went ahead and
put a new one in. (Never seen a fuel light come on in this car ever,
so I'm curious if it'll start when I start hugging E from now on.)
I know there is enough left of the sticker to tell that a few of the
slots are listed of 'blank/spare'-variety (Fuse 1 and 2, IIRC), but I
can also tell that a few of them also appear to have some purpose, but
the label is too damaged to make it out.

compartment at the bottom left of the page. The previous Fig also has
part of the wiring diagram.
