Checking and Replacing Fuses

The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit breakers and fusible thermal links in the wiring itself.

Look at the silver-colored band inside the fuse. If the band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be sure you replace a bad fuse with a new one of the identical size and rating.

If you ever have a problem on the road and don’t have a spare fuse, you can borrow one that has the same amperage. Just pick a feature of your vehicle that you can get along without – like the radio or cigarette lighter – and use its fuse if it is the correct amperage. Replace it as soon as you can.

There are three fuse blocks in your vehicle: two instrument panel fuse blocks and the engine compartment fuse block. There is a fuse puller located on the engine compartment fuse block. It can be used to easily remove fuses from the fuse block.


  • Before replacing a fuse check that the key has been removed from the ignition and that all the services are switched off and/or disengaged.
  • Do not repair fuses and never replace a blown fuse with one that has a higher amp rating. This can cause damage to the electrical system and fire.
  • Never replace a broken fuse with anything other than a new fuse. Use always an intact fuse of the same color.
  • If a fuse blows again contact a qualified service center.

Instrument Panel Fuse Blocks

Instrument Panel Fuse Blocks Location

The instrument panel fuse blocks are located at each end of the instrument panel.

  • To access the fuses, open the fuse panel door by pulling out.
  • To replace the door, insert the hooks at the front end first, then push the door into the instrument panel to secure it.
