6 65, Fuses and Circuit Breakers

6-65
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The wiring circuits in your vehicle are protected from
short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit breakers
and fusible thermal links.
Look at the silver
-
colored band inside the fuse. If the
band is broken or melted, replace the fuse. Be sure you
replace a bad fuse with a new one of the identical size
and rating.
If you ever have a problem on the road and don’t have a
spare fuse, you can borrow one that has the same
amperage or use one of the spare fuses in the underhood
fuse block. Just pick some feature of your vehicle that
you can get along without 
--
 like the radio or cigarette
lighter 
--
 and use its fuse, if it is the right amperage.
Replace it as soon as you can.
There are two fuse blocks in your vehicle: the
instrument panel fuse block and the underhood 
fuse block.
Instrument Panel Fuse Block
The instrument panel fuse
block is located to the right
of the glove box on the end
of the instrument panel.
Pull the door open to access the instrument panel 
fuse block.
