Identifying blown fuses

A blown fuse can be recognized by the burned metal strip ⇒ Fig. 199 .

Shine a flashlight on the fuse. This makes it easier to tell if the fuse has blown.

Replacing the fuse

  • If needed, remove the plastic tweezers from the fuse box cover.
  • For small fuses, slide the tweezers ⇒ Fig. 200  ① onto the fuse from the top A.
  • For larger fuses, slide the tweezers ⇒ Fig. 200  ① onto the fuse from the side B.
  • Pull out the blown fuse.
  • If the fuse is blown, replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same amperage (same color and same imprint) and same overall size ⇒ .
  • Replace the cover.

Note

If a fuse is replaced with a fuse with higher amperage, then damage can occur at various places in the electrical system.
