How do I replace fuses?

The fuses in your truck help electrical functions in your vehicle occur. These fuses may blow out over time and need replacing. To replace fuses:

  1. Remove the fuse box cover from the passenger side by pressing both tabs and pulling.

  2. Remove the blown fuse and replace with a new fuse with the same amperage.

  3. Put the fuse box cover on the compartment.
