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.
  4.  
  5. Unplug and discard the fuse.
  6.  
  7. Inspect the box terminals and clean if corroded. If any terminals are damaged, replace the terminals.
  8.  
  9. Plug in a new fuse of the same amperage rating.
  10.  


WARNING
Never exceed the amperage rating of a blown fuse. If the replacement fuse also blows, check for a problem in the circuit.

  1. Check for proper operation of the affected component or circuit.
