How to Change a Fuse on Your FIAT Vehicle

A blown fuse may seem like a headache, but you might be surprised by how easily you can resolve this issue on your own. Learning how to change a fuse on your FIAT vehicle is a quick and simple process — and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg either! Our team at FIAT of Tacoma is glad to help you learn how to get into your FIAT 500L fuze box to fix any issues you may be having.

Signs of a Broken Fuse

Fuses are connected to your car’s electrical system, so a blown fuse may cause any of the following components to malfunction. If there are issues in your FIAT 500L fuze box, these might just be the signs:

  • Convenience lights
  • Turn signals
  • Seat warmers
  • Stereo system
  • Headlights
  • Other electronic components

If you notice trouble with any of the electrical components of your FIAT, the fuse box is generally the first place a technician will check. The more electronic components your car has, the more fuses you’ll have. Some FIAT models even have multiple fuse boxes in the engine bay, so it’s worthwhile to learn the layout of your particular vehicle. Take a look at your owner’s guide for more information about your FIAT 500L fuze box or FIAT 500E fuze box.

Step-By-Step Guide to Changing Fuses

Whether you’re a serious auto enthusiast in Seattle or a total car novice from Olympia, anyone can check and change fuses on a FIAT. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Pull the hood release lever by the driver’s seat to raise the hood. Prop the hood to begin.
  2. Remove the bolt and cover from the fuse box under the hood.
  3. Check your owner’s manual to find the number and location of the fuse you need. Your fuse box cover will show a clearer picture of your fuse box layout.
  4. Pull the fuse in question with a fuse puller or needle-nose pliers.
  5. Look at the center strip of the fuse. If this strip is broken, your fuse is blown. If it is not broken, something else is causing your car issue.
  6. If you need a replacement, find a new fuse with the same amperage as the previous fuse and insert it into the correct socket.
  7. Replace the cover and bolt on the fuse box.
  8. Test your car to make sure the component now works.
  9. If you’re still having car troubles, be sure to schedule a service for a more in-depth inspection of your FIAT 500E fuze box.
