I plugged in the tail lights my trailer and blew some fuses. One was to the clock and interior vanity lights. I finally found that fuse under the hood and replaced it successfully. (The trailer is no longer connected.) The other is to the radio. I haven't found it yet. I replaced all the fuses in the relay panel on the lower left side of the dash, all except the one with the little plastic brackets around it. I couldn't take that one out. It's a 15 amp fuse. Can anyone tell me where the fuse for the radio is? I have a 2003 Forester with 145,000 miles on her.

Mine is a '99 Forester, so I am not sure if our fuse panels are different, but my radio (in dash) and clock (overhead) use the same 15A fuse. My problem is that only the radio is working and can't get the clock working...

According to the 2003 diagram there are two fuses for the radio: #2 (15 Amp) in the block under the hood ("main fuse box"), which is always on and keeps the memory and clock alive and also feeds the interior lights, and #9 (15 Amp) in the block behind the change carrier, down by your left foot ("fuse and relay box"), which comes on when the key is on.

#2 is located at the bottom of the right column as you look into the main fuse box from the side. It sounds like you got that one. #9 is third from left in the center row in the fuse and relay box.

And, welcome to both of you!

You've already done the first thing we ask of new members, and that's to provide an honest to goodness geographical location in your profile. This is helpful to all of us in suggesting local sources of parts and service (and offering personal help). The next thing that would be useful is to put the vital info about your Forester into your signature. Year, model, and transmission type should do it. That lets us do a better job targeting our answers to any of your questions, and it makes it so that you don't have to remember to include this info in the text of your posts if you’re asking for assistance or advice.

In case you haven't already come across it, we've got a great FAQ sort of thread called Common problems, need your help! that everybody ought to become familiar with. It will point you to some of the best posts on how to deal with a lot of the more common situations you might encounter. And also look at the stickies up at the top of each forum's listings for answers to many of the most significant aspects of owning a Forester.
