We are glad to welcome you to the https://car-box.info/ Internet portal, which is a systematized catalog with fuse diagrams and relay blocks, grouped by car makes and models.
Our material will be useful to all motorists. We will tell you where the fuses are located, what they are responsible for, as well as how and how to replace it correctly. Thanks to the decoding of the relay blocks, you do not have to guess or manually sort through them yourself in order to find out which one is responsible for the cigarette lighter, and which one is responsible for the headlights or interior lighting.
Not always, in order to get rid of the problem with the car, you need to contact the service. With the help of our material, you will find out the exact location of the required fuse and replace it yourself, which means you will save a lot of money.
Take advantage of our experience in this area, read the recommendations in the "Tips" section. And if you want to share your knowledge, we will be glad to receive your comments.
Why do fuses blow?
The main reason why fuses blow is if the permissible load is exceeded. This may be due to the connection of additional equipment, a short circuit, worn wiring, oxidation of the connection points, and other reasons.
If one or more electrical devices stop working in the car, then the first step is to check the integrity of the fuses.
How to check a fuse?
To do this, it is necessary to remove it from the block and visually inspect the fuse for integrity, if the fuse inside the fuse is damaged, the fuse is blown and must be replaced. The second option is to check with a multimeter.
- According to the block diagram, you need to determine which consumers are connected to the failed fuse, and whether there are any connectors that can be used to turn them off. By installing a serviceable fuse insert, gradually reconnecting all consumers, they determine what disabled the fusible element.
- When installing a new fuse, only a similar type of the same current rating should be used. If the rated current is made higher, then it will not work in emergency situations. For example, if an electric motor jams on the windshield wipers, it will not work, which will cause the electrical wiring to melt and further destructive consequences. Even a slight attempt to increase the rating can lead to a fire
- If all the power elements are working properly, then it is necessary to check the fuse box itself, as well as the wiring harnesses that extend from it. This is a very labor intensive job that requires some qualification.
