Checking and Replacing Fuses

The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit breakers, and fusible links. This greatly reduces the chance of damage caused by electrical problems.

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


  • 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.

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

Passenger Compartment Fuse Box

The instrument panel fuse block is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, on the lower portion of the instrument panel near the floor. Remove the panel cover to access the fuse block, and then remove the fuse block cover to access the fuses.
