Checking and Replacing Fuses

A vehicle’s electrical system is protected from electrical overload damage by fuses. If any of your vehicle’s lights, accessories, or controls do not work, check the appropriate circuit fuse. If a fuse has blown, the element inside the fuse will be broken or melted. Check those fuses first that protect the failed component, but check all the fuses before deciding that a blown fuse is not the cause. Replace any blown fuses with another with the same amperage (same color) and check the component’s operation.

Notice

  • Before changing a fuse, check the ignition key has been removed and that all the other electric devices have been turned off/disabled.
  • Do not use a screwdriver or any other metal object to remove fuses because it may cause a short circuit and damage the system.
  • Never replace a fuse with anything but another fuse of the same rating. A higher capacity fuse could cause damage and possibly a fire. Never install a wire or aluminum foil instead of the proper fuse even as a temporary repair. It may cause extensive wiring damage and a possible fire.
  • If the replacement fuse blows, this indicates an electrical problem. Avoid using the system involved and immediately consult at a qualified service center.
  • When replacing a blown fuse or relay, make sure the new fuse or relay fits tightly into the clips. Failure to tightly install the fuse or relay may cause damage to the wiring and electric systems.
  • If you do not have a spare, use a fuse of the same rating from a circuit, you may not need for operating the vehicle, such as the cigarette lighter fuse.

Instrument Panel Fuse Box

The fuse panel is behind the cover on the driver’s side dash panel.

Instrument Panel Fuse Box Location

To check and replace a fuse:

  1. Turn the ignition switch and all other switches off.
  2. Open the fuse panel cover.
  3. Pull the suspected fuse straight out. Use the removal tool provided on the main fuse box in the engine compartment. Refer to the fuse panel chart on the fuse panel cover to identify the likely problem fuse or electrical circuit.
  4. Check the removed fuse; replace if it is blown. Spare fuses are provided in the passenger compartment fuse panel, and in the engine compartment fuse panel cover.
  5. Push in a new fuse of the same rating, and make sure it fits tightly in the clips.

Memory Fuse

Memory Fuse

Your vehicle is equipped with a “Memory Fuse” to prevent battery discharge if the vehicle is parked for prolonged periods without being operated. Use the following procedures before parking the vehicle for a prolonged period.

  1. Turn off the engine.
  2. Turn off the headlights and tail lights.
  3. Open the main fuse box cover in the engine compartment and pull up the “ROOM FUSE 15A” using the fuse puller; push the fuse to the side. This will change the MEMORY FUSE mode to prevent battery discharge.

Note

If the memory fuse is pulled up from the fuse box housing, the radio, and dome light will not operate. After reinstalling the “Memory Fuse”, the radio “anti-theft” code (Optional) must be entered again and the preset radio stations must be reselected. Even though the memory fuse is pulled up, the battery can still be discharged by operation of the headlights or other electrical devices.
