Aren't those for electric windows? Even with the fuse installed you won't see anything happen unless you hit the window switch or jump those terminals at that point.

I'm not sure what you're trying to sort out.

Those fuses have nothing to do with the cabin fans. The A/C fuse is for the compressor and the Aux fan also has to do with the A/C by "by-passing" the auxiliary cooling fan's temperature trigger.

Not all A/C system installations used the fuse for the auxiliary fan. Some triggered it by using the A/C clutch circuit to activate the circuit.
