Fuses are located either in the engine compartment or passenger compartment fuse and relay panels. If a fuse blows, at least one, but possibly several components/circuits will not function properly.
Remove the fuse box cover.
Inspect the fuses to determine which is faulty.
Grasp the fuse and remove it from the fuse box.
Inspect the box terminals and clean if corroded. If any terminals are damaged, replace the terminals.
Plug in a new fuse of the same amperage rating.
Never exceed the amperage rating of a blown fuse. If the replacement fuse also blows, check for a problem in the circuit.
Check for proper operation of the affected component or circuit.
