|Fuses pg. 89|
In order to prevent damage to the electrical system as a result of short circuits or overloading, all electrical functions and components are protected by a number of fuses.
The fuses are located in three different places in the car:
Fuses in the main fuse box (A) protect the entire electrical supply system.
Fuses in the relay/fuse box (B) protect the electrical functions and components in the engine compartment.
The fuse box in the passenger compartment (C) contains the fuses which protect the various functions in the interior of the car.
Fuse replacement |
If an electrical component fails to function, it is likely that a fuse has blown due to an overloaded circuit. Pull out the fuse and look at it from the side to see if there is a break in the curved wire. If there is, install a new fuse of the same amperage and color.
Anumber of spare fuses are located in the fuse box in the passenger compartment. There is also a fuse removal tool to help with the removal and replacement of fuses.
