Fuses

Print

REPLACEMENT



Fuses are located either in the engine compartment or passenger compartment fuse and relay panels. If a fuse blows, a single component or single circuit will not function properly. Excessive current draw is what causes a fuse to blow. Observing the condition of the fuse will provide insight as to what caused this to occur.

A fuse with signs of burns, melting of the plastic shell, or little to no trace of the wire that once served as the conductor indicates that a direct short to ground exists.

  1. Remove the fuse or relay box cover.
  2.  
  3. Inspect the fuses to determine which is faulty.
