This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the eleventh generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) Toyota Corolla in checking or changing a faulty or "blown" fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

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

The 11th generation Corolla is equipped with the relatively newer style of "Low Profile" mini blade fuses.

New fuses in a variety of amperage ratings (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20) can be purchased at Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, Pep Boys, NAPA, Discount Auto Parts or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool should be included on the engine bay electrical block. If not, you may use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Fuse Location Diagram
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right side of the engine bay.

The engine bay fuse box is located behind the 12V automotive battery and next to the engine air filter box.

Press in the release tab on the front of the engine bay fuse box cover before pulling it straight off.

Turn over the fuse box cover to view the fuse location diagram.

There is a white plastic fuse puller tool near the front left corner of the engine bay fuse block.

The interior passenger compartment fuse block is located under the driver side of the dashboard close to where your left knee would reside while driving.

Look under the dashboard and locate the rectangular shaped white plastic interior fuse box cover.

Place Jaws Over Old Fuse
Remove the white plastic fuse puller tool from the engine bay electrical panel.

Place the jaws over the old fuse you'd like to check or change before pulling it straight out of the socket.

Pull Out Old Fuse

Hold Up To Light Bulb
Hold the old fuse up to a strong light source to check it.

If the thin metal strip in the translucent plastic center of the old fuse appears to be burnt or broken, the old fuse is most likely "blown" and needs to be replaced.

If the thin metal bar in the middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is most likely still good. But since new fuses are so cheap, the old fuse should still be replaced as part of your electrical issue troubleshooting process.

Replace Fuse Puller Tool
Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating (5, 10, 15, 20 & 25) straight in to the socket.

If necessary, you may be able to use the older style mini blade fuses which are slightly taller than the "low profile" fuses.

Re-insert the white plastic fuse puller tool in to its socket on the engine bay fuse block.
