Default Missing Fuses for Power Locks and Mirrors

I just bought a used 2004 Ford Ranger, my third in a row (the first two Rangers got totaled in accidents caused by others). The power door locks don't work quite right and the power mirrors don't work at all. No biggie, but it would be nice to get them in proper operation. Starting to troubleshoot the problems, I looked at the fuse box. Fuses 30 and 35 (power mirrors and power locks) were missing, so I bought replacements. When I tried to put the first in, it was loose. I looked and discovered there was no metal receiving end for the fuse -- apparently these two fuses were not needed. Why is that (they're in ther diagram in the owner's manual) and what to do now to resolve the problems? Hate to take it into a dealer to get fixed.....

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

Is it a rebuild? Also does it seem like that fuse box was swapped out from another truck like splicing etc..

Sounds like someone added the power locks and mirrors to a truck that didnt have them originally. Have you taken the door panel off and made sure that its wired for them?

Have to agree with Jerry make sure you are wired for them.

Clinton also has a good point. they may have just replaced with first fuse box they could find.

Thanks for the replies! I haven't taken the door panels off yet to see if there's wiring for the power locks and mirrors. As I said, the power locks kinda work (can get the remote to open the doors but not close them).
