Fuses


Note that the information presented here is accurate for my 97 model and build date. This list varies (although probably not substantially) as additional components were added and/or changed.

The front fuse panel is located inside and above the glove box. There should be a card with fuse identification information just below it. Look for a small, white tab and pull out.

Fuse 75, a 50 amp fuse for the aux fan (and on later models, fuse 76, a 40 amp for HVAC blower), is located above and behind the glove box. It's barely visible looking up from the passenger footwell. As Dave K. describes, it kinda looks like a red "Jolly Rancher" and is fitted in from the top (i.e., reversed from your view looking up.)

The rear fuse panel is located inside the trunk behind the pull down compartment on the passenger side above the battery. There should be a white sticker with fuse identification information on the reverse of the compartment.
