This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 5th generation or "Generation V" (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Dodge Grand Caravan in checking or changing a blown electrical fuse in the "integrated power module" located in the engine bay.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or RAM vehicles such as the Avenger, 200, 300, Town & Country, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Patriot, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Compass, 1500, 2500, 3500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement mini blade fuses in a variety of amperage ratings (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20 & 25) can be purchased at various stores such as Pep Boys, AutoZone, Discount Auto Parts, Walmart and online at Amazon.

A yellow plastic fuse puller tool is included at the front left area of the fuse panel.

The "integrated power module" (fuse box) is located at the right rear area of the engine bay closest to the driver seat.

Press in the two tabs on the right side of the fuse box to release the retaining clips.

Swing open the fuse box cover from the right over to the left side.

There is a fuse location diagram on the underside of the fuse panel cover and also another one in your owner's manual.

Pull Out Old Mini Blade Fuse

Hold Fuse Up To Light
Remove the yellow plastic fuse puller tool from the front left area of the panel.

Place the jaws of the fuse puller tool over the old fuse you'd like to check or change and pull it straight out of the socket.

Hold the old fuse up to a light source.

If the thin metal strip inside the translucent plastic middle section of the fuse appears to be intact, the fuse is most likely still good. Since new fuses are so inexpensive, the fuse should still be replaced as part of your electrical issue troubleshooting.

If the metal bar inside the center of the fuse appears to be broken or "burnt", the fuse is most likely "blown" and should be replaced with a new one.

Be sure to buy the standard mini blade fuses and not the relatively newer style of "low profile" fuses since they won't fit.

Close Fuse Box Cover
Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20 & 25 Amps) straight in to the socket.

Replace the fuse puller tool and swing the cover closed.

Push down the fuse box cover to secure the two retaining clips.

If changing the blown fuse has not fixed your electrical issue, you may have a wire that is shorted or a faulty component that needs to be replaced.
