How to check fuses
- Always replace a blown fuse with a new fuse with the same rating. If the new fuse blows again, this means that there is an electrical problem, typically a short. Do not install a higher rated fuse.
- Installing a fuse that has an ampere rating that is higher than recommended cause damage and possibly even fire if there is a short.
- Always remember to turn the ignition OFF when you are pulling and replacing fuses and relays.
