Yj electrical problem with headlights and cd player

I have an '87 YJ. A few days ago I had my bikini top on and my Jeep got pourned on pretty bad during a thunder storm. I drove it home and everything worked fine. As I was going to leave a few hours later, the cd player was getting no power, and the headlights and brakelights would not work. I checked the fuse box but couldn't find the fuses for either. I am also in the process of moving and can't find my Haynes manual to help figure out the problem. I'm thinking it could be maxi-fuses but don't know much about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Most likely it is a fuse. If you dont have access to a digital multimeter or a test light you can check them the hard way. Pull them one at a time and look to see if they are blown. When i get home tonight ill check the Haynes and see if i can narrow it down for ya. If you take it to a stereo shop like circuit city they would be able to check them and i doubt they would charge you but if they do itll only be maybe 20 bucks.

I've checked every fuse (the hard way) and all of them are fine. I took it to an auto parts store and they are telling me that it is the light switch. I could understand that this might explain the headlights, brakelights and dash lights but I don't understand how the CD player is out too. I'm starting to think it is a wiring problem which means that I am going to be in for some fun times checking every wire.

I fixed the problem earlier today. It turns out it was a burnt wire that was going to the relay. Took me about 5 minutes to fix. Thanks for the help.
