The fuse access panel is on the left side of the instrument
panel next to the steering column. To remove the panel,
pull it out, as shown. A label identifying the components
and circuits is located on the inside of the cover.
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 shows a
problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
If you will not be using your vehicle for more than 21
days you may want to take steps to preserve your battery.
Disengage the mini fuse in the Power Distribution
Center labeled IOD (Ignition Off-Draw).
Or, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
