brake controller no power

i popped a fuse under the dash on my 02 ex. heard it pop and now i have no power to the controller. the controller works in my other truck so its not a dead brake controller. pulled every fuse and none were blown. where does the controller get power from? google came up with nothing and my haynes manual and a chilton manual gave me nothing.

Did you use an ohm meter to test the fuses? If not, you didn't check fuses. Looking at them means nothing.

I popped the same one in my 2003 Excursion. There is definitely a dedicated fuse for the brake controller. It's one of those tall square ones under the dash. Maybe #101. Definitely 30A, because I was able to temporarily use my power seat fuse until I could get a replacement. (I do have the 6.0, but I'd imagine the fuse boxes are relatively the same.)

They're like $5 or $6 a piece at my local mom and pop auto store. Yikes!
