Glad it was finally sorted. I think they are calling E-box (Electrical Box), otherwise known as box where the ECU and TCM sit. I never knew there were fuses in there. Learn something new everyday.

Hi and welcome! You do have an amp. it's most likely located in the trunk on the passenger side of the trunk behind the carpet paneling. We're having a fix-it-day on Apr. 11th if you want to stop by.

EML is related to the throttle unit, which explains why you don't have any throttle response. Do some research on EML issues. You may need a new throttle. it's electric on the 2.5i and 3.0i engines.
