Fuses are a one-time circuit protection. If a circuit is overloaded or shorts, the thin metal fuse acts like a weak (and expendable) link in a chain by burning. This cuts off electrical flow before the circuit is damaged. Fuses inserted to replace blown fuses will continue to blow unless the circuit is first repaired.
The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering column.
- If equipped, remove the fuse panel cover.
- Locate the fuse to be removed.
- If equipped with a small fuse removal tool (usually attached to the inside of the fuse panel cover), remove the fuse from its cavity and inspect it to see if its blown.
- If the fuse is blown, replace it with a fuse of the same amperage rating.
- If equipped, replace the cover.
- If the fuse continues to blow, check the circuit or component that the fuse is protecting and repair as necessary.
