Chrysler Caravan/Voyager/Town and Country 1996-1999

Fuses

Print

The main fuse block on these vehicles is located at the left side of the dashboard, behind an access panel. There is also a Power Distribution Center (PDC) which can be found under the hood.

Each fuse block uses miniature fuses which are designed for increased circuit protection and greater reliability. The compact fuse is a blade terminal design which allows easy pull-out/push-in removal and replacement.

Although the fuses are interchangeable, the amperage values are not. The values are usually molded in bold, color coded, easy to read numbers on the fuse body. Use only fuses of equal replacement valve.

REPLACEMENT



See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

  1. Remove the fuse block access panel or cover.
  2.  
  3. Locate the fuse for the circuit in question.
  4.  

When replacing the fuse, DO NOT use one with a higher amperage rating.

  1. Check the fuse by pulling it from the fuse block and observing the element. If it is broken, install a replacement fuse of the same amperage rating. If the fuse blows again, check the circuit for a short to ground or faulty device in the circuit protected by the fuse.

  1. Continuity can also be checked with the fuse installed in the fuse block with the use of a test light connected across the 2 test points on the end of the fuse. If the test light lights, replace the fuse. Check the circuit for a short to ground or faulty device in the circuit which is protected by the fuse.
