Checking and Replacing Fuses

Fuses and circuit breakers protect your vehicle’s electrical system from overloading. If electrical parts in your vehicle are not working, the system may have been overloaded and blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Before you replace or repair any electrical parts, check the appropriate fuses or circuit breakers.

  1. Use the charts to decide which fuse you should check.
  2. On the fuse panel decal located on the cover of the power distribution box or on the end of the instrument panel fuse panel, find the number of the fuse you want to check.
  3. Find the corresponding fuse and remove it with the fuse pulling tool that is provided.
  4. Check the fuse to see if it is blown. Look through the clear side of the fuse to see if the metal wire inside is separated. If it is, the fuse should be replaced.
  5. Replace the fuse with one that has the right amperage 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.
  • Do not modify the electrical system of your vehicle in any way. Have repairs to the electrical system and the replacement of relays and high current fuses carried out by properly trained technicians.
  • If a fuse blows again contact a qualified service center.
