This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and probably also the refreshed 2017) Ford Fusion sedan in checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fiesta, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement mini blade fuses can be purchased at Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, Discount Auto Parts, NAPA or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is included on the interior passenger compartment electrical panel.

Under Driver Side Dashboard
The engine bay fuse box is located on the far right side of the engine bay next to the 12V automotive battery and the engine air filter box.

Gently pull back the two retaining clips on the left side of the fuse box cover to release the top cover.

Lift the top cover off the fuse box and turn it over to view the fuse location diagram.

There is also another fuse location diagram in your owner's manual.

The interior passenger compartment fuse panel is located under the driver side of the dashboard.

Place Jaws Over Old Fuse
It can be accessed by just looking under the dashboard.

(For even easier access, pull off the plastic trim panels. See the pictures further down the page.)

There is a white plastic fuse puller tool attached to the left side of the panel.

Squeeze the end of the tool to open the jaws before placing them over the fuse you'd like to check or change.

Pull Out Old Fuse

Hold Up To Light Bulb

Push In New Fuse
Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Hold the old fuse up to a strong light source.

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

If the metal strip inside the translucent plastic center of the old fuse appears to be burnt or broken, it is "blown" and should be changed for a new one of the same amperage rating (5, 10, 15, 20, 25).

Push a new mini blade fuse straight in to the socket.

Electrical Fuse Replaced
Line up the engine bay fuse box cover and gently snap it down in to place.

Double check that the fuse box cover is secure.

Test the electrical component that you were having issues with such as the radio, air conditioning, wipers, tail lights, headlights, interior lights, power windows, door locks, etc.

If you are still having the same electrical problem, you might have a shorted wire somewhere or the component itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.
