The extended storage switch on your car (if it has one) is designed for use if you put your vehicle into storage for longer than 30 days. It contains fuses, and those fuses can blow just like any others in your car. Here’s how to remove the switch:

  1. Turn the engine and headlights off.

  2. Open the hood.

  3. Open the fuse box.

  4. Press the two side tabs on the switch in.

  5. Lift the switch up and out (you may need to pull hard).
