Circuit Breakers



The B Series Pick-up, Navajo and MPV models use circuit breakers for components which have a high start-up amperage pull (such as power windows). All breakers will automatically reset if they have been tripped. The circuit breakers are replaceable (should one go bad or not reset) and can be found on the fuse panel.

  3. Look through the side of the fuse body to determine if the fuse element is blown.
  4.  

To install:

  1. Check the amperage rating of the fuse which was removed and obtain a new fuse of the same rating.
  2.  


WARNING
Never replace a blown fuse with a new fuse of a higher rating. Severe electrical damage, as well as possible electrical fire could result.

  1. Align the fuse with its mounting position and push it into place until fully seated in the panel.
  2.  
  3. Turn the ignition switch on and operate the accessory that was protected by that fuse.

If the fuse continues to blow, inspect and test the wire harness and component or components which are protected by that fuse.

Fusible (Fuse) Links



The fusible link is a short length of special, Hypalon (high temperature) insulated wire, integral with the engine compartment wiring harness and should not be confused with standard wire. It is several wire gauges smaller than the circuit which it protects. Under no circumstances should a fuse link replacement repair be made using a length of standard wire cut from bulk stock or from another wiring harness.

The fusible links are located near the starter solenoid and shares the terminal with the battery-to-starter solenoid cable.

Power Distribution Center



Located under the hood, in the engine compartment. It houses the fuses and relays for most of the under hood components which are not controlled by a dash mounted switch (such as the alternator, fuel pump, ECM, etc.). The fuses and relays are replaced in the same manner as the fuse panel inside the vehicle. The power distribution box cover is hinged on one end and utilizes a retaining latch on the other. Simply release the latch and lift the cover up to gain access to the fuses and relays.
