FUSES AND RELAYS
If electrical components in the
vehicle are not working, a fuse
may have blown. Blown fuses are
identified by a broken wire. Check
the appropriate fuses before
replacing any electrical
components.
Use the fuse puller tool provided
on the passenger compartment
fuse panel cover to replace the
fuses.

Always replace a fuse with
one that has the specified
amperage rating. Using a fuse
with a higher amperage rating
can cause severe wire damage
and could start a fire.
Even after a fuse is replaced, it
will continue to blow if the cause
of the overload is not identified
and corrected. If the fuse
continues to blow, have the
vehicle’s electrical system checked
by a qualified service technician.
To reset a circuit breaker, press
the reset button.
