Checking and Replacing Fuses  
If something electrical in your  
vehicle stops working, check for a  
blown fuse first. Determine from the  
chart on pages 401 and 402 , or the  
diagram on the fuse box lid, which  
fuse or fuses control that device.  
Check those fuses first, but check all  
the fuses before deciding that a  
blown fuse is the cause. Replace any  
blown fuses, and check if the device  
works.  
1. Turn the ignition switch to the  
LOCK (0) position. Make sure the  
headlights and all other  
FUSE

accessories are off.  
2. Remove the cover from the fuse  
box.  
3. Check each of the large fuses in  
the under-hood fuse box by  
looking through the side window  
at the wire inside. Removing these  
fuses requires a Phillips-head  
screwdriver.

4. Check the smaller fuses in the  
under-hood fuse box and all the  
fuses in the interior fuse box by  
pulling out each one with the fuse  
puller provided on the back of the  
under-hood fuse box cover.  
5. Look for a blown wire inside the  
fuse. If it is blown, replace it with  
one of the spare fuses of the same  
rating or lower.  
Your vehicle has spare fuses on  
the back of the under-hood fuse  
box cover.

Fuses  
If you cannot drive the vehicle  
without fixing the problem, and you  
do not have a spare fuse, take a fuse  
of the same rating or a lower rating  
from one of the other circuits. Make  
sure you can do without that circuit  
temporarily (such as the accessory  
power socket or radio).  
If you replace the blown fuse with a  
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it  
might blow out again. This does not  
indicate anything wrong. Replace the  
fuse with one of the correct rating as  
soon as you can.  
6. If the replacement fuse of the  
same rating blows in a short time,  
there is probably a serious  
electrical problem in your vehicle.  
Leave the blown fuse in that  
circuit and have your vehicle  
checked by a qualified technician.  
Replacing a fuse with one that has a  
higher rating greatly increases the  
chances of damaging the electrical  
system. If you do not have a  
replacement fuse with the proper rating  
for the circuit, install one with a lower  
rating.  
If the radio fuse is removed, the  
audio system will disable itself. The  
next time you turn on the radio you  
may see ‘‘ENTER CODE’’ in the  
frequency display. Use the preset  
buttons to enter the digit code (see  
page  
).
