Checking and Replacing Fuses

Individual electrical circuits are protected by fuses.

  • Before replacing a fuse, switch off the ignition and the appropriate consumer.
  • Find out which fuse belongs to the component that is not operating.
  • Defect fuses can be detected by their melted metal strips. Replace the defect fuse by a new fuse of the same ampere number.
  • If a new fuse burns through again, consult a specialist immediately.


  • Never “repair” fuses and also do not replace them with a fuse of a higher amperage – risk of fire! This may also cause damage at another part of the electrical system.
  • Have the electrical system checked as quickly as possible by a ŠKODA specialist garage if a newly inserted fuse blows again after a short time.
  • We recommend always carrying replacement fuses in the vehicle.

Passenger Compartment Fuse Box

The fuses are located on the left side of the dash panel behind the safety cover.

  • Find out which fuse belongs to the relevant component.
  • Take the plastic clip out of its fixture in the fuse cover, insert it onto the respective fuse and pull out this fuse.
  • Defect fuses can be detected by their melted metal strips. Replace the defect fuse by a new fuse of the same ampere number.
  • Fit on the fuse cover again.
