This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2015, 2016 and 2017 Chrysler 200 sedan in checking or changing a blown fuse or a faulty relay in the engine bay or interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or Fiat vehicles such as the 300, Pacifica, Town & Country, Avenger, Charger, Challenger, Journey, Dart, Durango, Magnum, Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Fiat 124 Spider, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Wrangler, Compass, Liberty, Patriot, ProMaster, 1500 and C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan is equipped with the older style standard mini blade fuses.

The newer 2016 and 2017 model years might have the slightly newer style of "low profile" mini blade fuses.

Please check your car before purchasing new fuses.

A white plastic fuse puller tool should be attached near the front left edge of the engine bay fuse block. If the tool is missing, you could also use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

White Plastic Fuse Puller Tool
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right (driver) side of the engine bay.

The rectangular shaped black plastic fuse box is located just behind the 12V automotive battery and next to the brake fluid reservoir which has a yellow plastic cap.

Gently push in the tabs located on the front and rear edge of the fuse box cover to release the retaining clips.

Pull the cover straight off the top of the fuse box.

Turn over the fuse box cover to view the fuse location diagram. There is also another diagram in your owner's manual.

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

If the tool is missing, you could also use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Pull the fuse puller tool straight out of the engine bay fuse panel.

Access Cover Removed
The interior passenger compartment electrical panel is located behind a plastic access cover at the bottom left of the dashboard close to where the driver's left knee would reside while driving.

Insert your fingers in to the slot at the bottom edge of the access cover and gently pull it out of the dashboard.

Set the plastic access cover aside in a safe place.

Pull Out Old Fuse
There is a fuse location diagram for the interior electrical panel in your owner's manual.

Pinch the base of the fuse puller tool to open the jaws.

Place the jaws over the old fuse that you would like to check or change.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Replace Fuse Puller Tool
To check the condition of the old fuse, hold it up to a light bulb.

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

If the thin metal bar in the middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is probably still good.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, it should still be replaced as part of your electrical issue troubleshooting.

Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 15A, 20A or 25A) straight in to the socket.

If you suspect that one of the relays is faulty, you can either check it with a multimeter or the easiest way to troubleshoot the problem is to simply replace the relay with a new one.

Snap In Access Panel
Push the fuse puller tool back into its socket on the engine bay fuse block.

Lower the fuse box cover down in to place and push on it to secure the two retaining clips.

Move to the driver side dashboard. Re-insert the two tabs on the bottom edge of the access cover in to the opening.

Pop in the top edge of the access panel.

Check the electrical component that you were having issues with such as the radio, power windows, power door locks, horn, headlights, tail lights, window wipers, 12V power outlet, etc.

If you are still having the same issue, there might be a shorted wire somewhere or the component itself needs to be replaced.
