Default my interior fuse box is confusing (pic)

For a 1994 Honda Civic DX Hatch. I need to replace at least the dome light fuse, or so I think. But the diagram that came with the car doesn't really match up with what the fuse box shows...



I don't know if I have the wrong diagram or if somebody before me had no idea what they were doing when they replaced fuses.

Members say to themselves "I wonder what year and trim Civic this guy owns"?

Click the Garage feature at the top and input your car info.

To avoid a dangerous and destructive fire, install fuses with the recommended amp rating into each slot.

Done and done.

Fuse 3 meaning third from the left, top row?

edit: nevermind, the first picture you posted didn't show up at first.

Hmm. So someone before me put the wrong fuse in?

Fourth from the left, starting with spare fuse slot, bottom row. It currently has a 15A fuse installed.

Ok, so I replaced the 15a with a 7.5a -- nada. I'm not even sure if the dome light assembly I have is the correct one for my car, but I figured it should work anyways. Is there something I can replace from the under-the-hood fuse box?

Check whether 50A hood fuse #36 is blown.

Do you have a test light or multimeter?

I don't have a multi-meter. Would I be able to visually inspect the 50A fuse to see if it's blown?

Do you have a test light or can you get one? They're only a few bucks. Then again you buy a digital multimeter for $3 at Harbor Freight Tools. I can post a sale coupon, if you wish.

Visual inspection of fuses doesn't always identify them as blown, so it's a little risky.

I'll have to pick one up in the next few days. I'll come back to this thread if the fuse turns out to not be the problem. Thanks for the help.
