The 1994-98 Mustang vehicles are equipped with two fuse boxes, or locations: the fuse junction panel and the power distribution box.
The fuse junction panel is located under the left-hand side of the instrument panel and is an integral part of the chassis wiring harness. The fuse junction panel contains only some of the fuses and circuit breakers for the vehicle.

The other location for fuses and relays is the power distribution box, which is located in the engine compartment on the left-hand, front fender apron. This box contains the high power fuses and was designed to take the place of most of the fusible links.
Fig. Fig. 2: To access the fuses in the power distribution box, remove the panel cover
Fig. Fig. 3: Note that the identification of the fuses and relays is embossed into the power distribution box cover
Fig. Fig. 4: To remove a fuse, you can use a fuse puller, or simply pull it out of the distribution box with your fingers
Fig. Fig. 5: Note that when the metal strip (arrow) in the fuse is not broken or burned, the fuse is okay
Fig. Fig. 6: The relays can be removed by pulling them out of the power distribution box as well
To replace a blown fuse, perform the following:
Always disconnect the negative battery cable before removing or servicing the fuses, relays or fusible links. Otherwise, component damage may result.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
The fuse junction panel cover is equipped with extra fuses and a fuse removal tool.
Remove the cover from the appropriate fuse box (junction panel or power distribution box).
Using your fingers or a fuse removal tool, pull the bad fuse out of its electrical terminals.

Fig. Fig. 9: Use the fuse removal tool like a pair of tweezers to grasp the fuse and pull it out of the junction panel
Always be sure of the fuse rating of the fuse you are replacing. Component damage or, perhaps, a car fire may result from installing an improper fuse. Refer to your owner's manual for the proper fuse ratings, or look at the fuse you are removing.
Insert a new fuse into the fuse block. Ensure that it is fully seated between the electrical terminals.
Install the fuse box cover.
Connect the negative battery cable. If the fuse blows again, there is a problem somewhere in your vehicle's wiring. Have the wiring harness inspected or inspect it yourself for problems.
