Replacing a Fuse


Parts Required:

  • fuse


  • Fuse Puller or Needle Nose Pliers
  • Flashlight (optional)
  • Screwdriver (optional)

If you're experiencing an electrical component that isn't functioning correctly, maybe the radio doesn't work, or maybe the automatic window isn't rolling down, or maybe the check engine light is on, it is time to replace a blown fuse or relay.

Step 1

Identify what electrical component isn't working

Step 2

Locate the fuse box. I have provided a link to a website that gives all vehicle fuse box diagrams and locations https://fuse-box.info/

Keep in mind some fuse boxes are located in the cab on the drivers side or even passenger side, or in the engine bay!

Step 3 (Inspect by visualizing it)

Most fuses have a fuse element that will be easy to determine whether the fuse is blown (middle and right fuse in picture) if its not blown its still good!Replacing a Fuse-26dc #2-

Step 3 (Inspect with test light)

Inspect the installed fuse with a test light by touching each side of the fuse. If it lights on one side but not the other, the fuse is blown.

Step 4

Remove the blown fuse with the plastic fuse removal tool. The tool is usually located in the fuse box.
