Fuse replacement averages $72 to $91 but you can get an exact quote if you click on "Get a Quote" at YourMechanic’s fuse replacement service page. Fuses are located in a variety of spots in the car including in an underhood fuse box as well as in the passenger compartment. Every circuit has its own fuse and, in addition, there are fusible links in most cars as well. Please note that fuses are not a consumable or maintenance item. Therefore, in many if not most instances when a fuse blows there is an underlying fault in the circuit that the fuse protects. Consequently, a new fuse may blow immediately and that just simply means the circuit will have to be diagnosed and the fault found and repaired before a new fuse is installed. Obviously, the mechanic who replaces the fuse will assist in the event that the circuit has a fault. If you request fuse replacement service, the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
