just by the name i would guess it powers the left side of the i/p fuse panel. which is not the one you are looking at i am assuming there is likely one on the side of the dash when you open the door. you have to pull those fuses to narrow it down further

solved, the leak.

it was in the fuse box, so i had to make new conections for the fuses since the ones in the fuse box were melted.
