That would be because there is no power going to the wire beyond where the fuse goes. Doh. And yeh, look under your hood, look for a wire running from your battery that doesn't look stock, unless someone did an incredible install. There should be a case on it about a foot down, open it up, there'll be a fuse inside, pull that fuse out and vuala, no more power.
