you don't really have to update the fuse. but i'm guessing it's fuse 32, since that's what you're supposed to take out to get rid of the headlight warning for 99-01 cars.

That's actually only the fuse for the headlight out warning system. I don't know the number off of the top of my head but check the fuse box as there is a guide that details what fuse is tied to which system.

It will actually be under the Light Control Module...disable that fuse and you will disable the headlights...and a whole host of other systems.
