On rear wheel drive cars except Conquest the fuse block is located beneath the instrument panel above the headlight dimmer floor switch or on the driver's side front pillar post. On Conquest and front wheel drive cars, the fuse panel is located in the instrument panel, just to the left of the steering column.

Some components have inline fuses at or near the component. Check your owner's manual to determine the location of these fuses. Fuse holders are labeled as to their service and the correct amperage. Always replace blown fuses with new ones of the correct amperage. Otherwise electrical overloads and possible wiring damage will result.
