REPLACING A FUSE

CAUTION

Always switch off the electrical system and the affected electrical circuit before replacing a fuse. Failure to do so could cause damage to the vehicle.

CAUTION

Fit approved replacement fuses of the same rating and type, or fuses of a matching specification. Using an incorrect fuse may result in damage to the vehicle's electrical system and can result in a fire.

CAUTION

If the replacement fuse blows after fitment, the system should be checked by a retailer/authorised repairer. Further damage could be caused to the vehicle if ignored.

NOTES

Relays and fuses not detailed in this Owner's Handbook should only be replaced by qualified persons.

If an electrical system has stopped operating, the cause may be a blown fuse. The easiest way to check if a fuse has blown is to first remove it.

To check for a blown fuse:

  1. Refer to the fuse box tables shown in this section to identify the correct fuse.

  2. Gain access to the appropriate fuse box. See FUSE BOX LOCATIONS.

  3. Refer to the fuse box label to locate the correct fuse. Depending on the fuse box, the label is located on the underside of the lid.

  4. Use the fuse removal tool to remove the fuse. See FUSE BOX LOCATIONS.

  5. Check for a break in the wire within the fuse. If the wire within the fuse is broken, the fuse has blown and needs replacing. If the wire is still intact, consult a retailer/authorised repairer.

  6. Refit or replace the fuse, as appropriate. Make sure the fuse is pushed fully into its correct position.
