Chrysler Aspen - 2008 Fuse Box Diagram

Chrysler Aspen - 2008 Fuse Box Diagram

The airbag light does not come on or flickers during
the six to eight seconds when the ignition switch is
first turned on.
The light remains on or flickers after the six to eight
second interval.
The light flickers or comes on and remains on while
driving.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer or any engine
related gauges are not working, the airbag control mod-
ule may also be disabled. The airbags may not be ready
to inflate for your protection. Promptly check the fuse
block for blown fuses. Refer to “Fuse Block” in Section 7..
See your authorized dealer if the fuse is good.
Event Data Recorder (EDR)
In the event of an accident, your vehicle is designed to
record up to five seconds of specific vehicle data param-
eters (see the following list) in an event data recorder
prior to the moment of airbag deployment and up to a
quarter-second of high-speed deceleration data during
and/or after airbag deployment. EDR data are ONLY
recorded if an airbag deploys and are otherwise unavail-
able.
NOTE:
1. Under certain circumstances, EDR data may not be
recorded (e.g., loss of battery power).
In conjunction with other data gathered during a com-
plete accident investigation, the electronic data may be
used by DaimlerChrysler Corporation and others to learn
more about the possible causes of crashes and associated
injuries in order to assess and improve vehicle perfor-
mance. In addition to crash investigations initiated by

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE
ELECTRICAL POWER OUTLETS
This vehicle has three auxiliary power outlets that can
provide up to 20 Amps of current for accessories de-
signed for use with the standard power outlet adapters.
The outlet located in the lower portion of the instrument
panel has a snap on plastic cap so that it can be covered
when not in use. As a safety precaution, the outlet in the
instrument panel only operates with the ignition switch
ON. When the optional Cigar Lighter heating element is
used, it heats when pushed in and pops out automati-
cally
when
ready
for
use.
To
preserve
the
heating
element, do not hold the lighter in the heating position.
There are two additional 12 V/(20 total Amps for both
outlets) power outlets, one located in the storage bin of
the center console and another located in the right rear
cargo area. These outlets can be reconfigured by the
customer
to
operate
only
when
the
ignition
is
ON
(switched battery fed) or with the ignition ON or OFF
(battery fed) to allow for cellular telephone charging and
or operation while the ignition is off.
NOTE:
All accessories connected to these outlets should
be removed or turned OFF when the vehicle is not in use
to protect the battery against discharge (unless the cus-
tomer has reconfigured the fuse block to switched battery
feed). (See page 187 for more information.)
115V Inverter Outlet – If Equipped
This vehicle may also be equipped with a 115 Volt (150
Watts Maximum) outlet on the rear of the front center
console. These outlets can power cell phones, electronics
and other low power devices. This plug is controlled by
a switch located in left lower instrument panel.
Press the switch to turn the power on to the outlet. Press
the switch a second to turn the power off.

Reconfiguring Power Outlets
To reconfigure the outlets, be sure the ignition is OFF
before removing the fuse. The reconfigurable fuse loca-
tion is a special design that allows the fuse to be installed
in two different ways. If the fuse is located in the
9
Upper
or Top Position
9
the outlets will work at all times. If the
fuse is located in the
9
Lower or Bottom Position
9
the
power outlets will only work when the ignition is ON.
NOTE:
The fuse block is located in the left side kick
panel behind a removable cover near the park brake
pedal. A fuse puller is attached to the inside surface of the
fuse panel cover to aid in removing fuses, if necessary.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER DESCRIPTION
1. Fuel Gage
The fuel gage shows level of fuel in the tank when
ignition switch is in the ON position.
2. Temperature Gage
The temperature gage indicates engine coolant
temperature.
Any
reading
within
the
normal
range indicates that the cooling system is operat-
ing satisfactorily. The gage needle in V6 and V8 engines
will likely indicate a high temperature when driving in
hot weather, up mountain grades, in heavy traffic, or
when towing a trailer. If the needle rises to the “H” mark,
stop the vehicle, shift into NEUTRAL and increase engine
speed
for
two
to
three
minutes.
If
the
temperature
reading does not return to normal, see your authorized
dealer for service immediately..
CAUTION!
Do not leave your vehicle unattended with the en-
gine running as you would not be able to react to the
temperature indicator if the engine overheats.
The gage pointer will remain near its last reading when
the engine is turned off. It will return to a true reading
when the engine is restarted.
3. Turn Signal Indicators
When a turn signal is activated, a right-pointing or
left-pointing arrow lights up and flashes to indicate the
direction
of
the
turn.
These
indicators
also
indicate
proper operation of the front and rear turn signal lights.
If either indicator flashes at a faster rate than normal,
check for a defective bulb. If either indicator fails to light
up when the lever is moved, check for a defective fuse or
turn signal LED. A single chime is activated when the

to
trip
odometers,
press
and
release the Trip Odometer button.
To reset a trip odometer, display the desired trip odom-
eter to be reset then push and hold the button until the
display resets (approximately two seconds).
Vehicle Warning Messages
For non-Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)
equipped vehicles, when the appropriate conditions ex-
ist, messages such as “door ajar” (indicates that a door(s)
may be ajar), “gASCAP” (which indicates that your gas
cap is possibly loose or damaged),
9
CHANgE OIL”
(indicates that the engine oil should be changed), “Lo-
WASH” (low washer fluid), and “noFUSE” (indicates
that the IOD fuse is removed from the Integrated Power
Module), will display in the odometer.
NOTE:
If the vehicle is equipped with an EVIC, most
warnings will display in the EVIC. For additional infor-
mation, refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) — If Equipped” in Section 3.
The outside temperature will display in the odometer for
non-EVIC equipped vehicles. Pressing the trip odometer
RESET button toggles the feature back to the odometer.
Change Oil Message
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The “Change Oil” message will flash in
the instrument cluster odometer for approximately 12
seconds after a single chime has sounded to indicate the
next scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.

Seat Belt Maintenance
Do not bleach, dye or clean the belts with chemical
solvents or abrasive cleaners. This will weaken the fabric.
Sun damage will also weaken the fabric.
If the belts need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or
lukewarm water. Do not remove the belts from the
vehicle to wash them.
Replace the belts if they appear frayed or worn or if the
buckles do not work properly.
FUSE BLOCK
CAUTION!
When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use
only a fuse having the correct amperage rating. The
use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may
result in a dangerous electrical system overload. If a
properly rated fuse continues to blow, it suggests a
problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
NOTE:
If you are leaving your vehicle dormant for
longer than 21 days you may want to take steps to protect
your battery. You may do this by disconnecting the
battery or by disconnecting the two ignition-off draw
(I.O.D.) fuses located in the auxiliary Power Distribution
Center (PDC) in the engine compartment. The I.O.D.
cavities include a snap-in retainer that allows the fuse to
be disconnected without removing it from the fuse block.
Pressing the I.O.D. fuse back into the cavity reconnects it.

VEHICLE STORAGE
If you are storing your vehicle for more than 21 days, we
recommend that you take the following steps to mini-
mize the drain on your vehicle’s battery:
Disconnect the Ignition Off Draw (I.O.D.) fuses located
in the Power Distribution Center (PDC). The I.O.D.
cavity includes a snap-in retainer that allows the fuse
to be disconnected without removing it from the fuse
block.
The transfer case should be placed in the 4HI mode
and kept in this position to minimize the battery drain.
As an alternative to the above steps you may discon-
nect the negative cable from the battery.
