Fuses are important safeguards for your electronics. In the event that too much power is consumed through the circuit, the fuse blows rather than allowing the consumer to overheat the circuit by consuming too much power, where it might cause serious damage. There are a couple of locations in your car where you’ll find fuses, including the following:

  • Under the hood near the master cylinder

  • Under the dash


  • Use the labels on the fuse box lids to determine what fuses operate what circuits.

  • Replace any fuses that are blown as the first step in troubleshooting electrical problems.
