This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the XV50 7th generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Toyota Camry in checking or changing a blown electrical fuse in either the engine bay or passenger compartment fuse panels.

Owners of other Toyota, Scion or Lexus vehicles such as the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, RAV4, Prius, Tacoma, Tundra, Sienna, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, 4Runner, Land Runner, Sequoia, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, tC, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

No tools are needed to access either of the fuse panels. A white plastic fuse puller tool is provided on the underside of the engine bay fuse box cover.

Assortment boxes of replacement "low profle" fuses in a variety of amperage ratings can be purchased at any auto parts store, Wal-Mart and online at Amazon.

Pull Out Old Fuse
To use the fuse puller tool, squeeze together the end to open the jaws before placing them over the fuse you'd like to check or replace.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the panel and hold it up to a light source.

Replace Fuse Puller Tool
If the thin metal strip inside the fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is most likely still good.

If the metal piece in the center of the fuse appears to be broken or "burnt" the old fuse should be discarded.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, you should always replace the fuse as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Be sure to buy the relatively newer style of low profile mini blade fuses. The older style standard mini blade fuses are a bit taller and will also fit but they will stick out of the socket a bit.
