Print

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15

The fuses are of the miniaturized (compact) size and are located on a fuse block, they provide increased circuit protection and reliability. Access to the fuse block is gained either through a swing-down unit (located on the underside of the instrument panel, near the steering column) or through the glove box opening. On 1996 models, there is a fuse/relay panel mounted underhood. Each fuse receptacle is marked as to the circuit it protects and the correct amperage of the fuse.

REPLACEMENT



  1. Pull the fuse from the fuse block.
  2.  
  3. Inspect the fuse element (through the clear plastic body) to the blade terminal for defects.
  4.  

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

  1. To install, reverse the removal procedures.
  2.
