This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Chrysler 200 sedan in checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in the integrated power module (electrical box).

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

The '11-'14 Chrysler 200 uses standard mini blade fuses that can be purchased at Walmart, Pep Boys, Advance Auto, AutoZone, Napa Auto Parts or online at Amazon.

A plastic fuse puller tool may be included on the fuse block. If the tool is missing you can carefully use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Fuse Location Diagram
The "integrated power module" (fuse box) is located on the far right side of the engine bay next to the air filter box.

Pull in the two release tabs on the rear edge of the fuse box cover towards yourself.

Gently lift the cover off the fuse box and turn it over. There is a fuse location diagram on the underside of the cover and also another one in the owner's manual.

Gently Pull Out Old Fuse
If you need to change a relay, they are located under a black plastic cover just behind the fuse panel.

Carefully grab the plastic part of the old fuse you'd like to check or change with the needle nose pliers and pull it straight out of its socket.

Push In New Mini Blade Fuse
Hold the old fuse up to a light source to check it.

If the thin metal strip inside the plastic center part of the old fuse appears to be broken or "burnt" then the fuse is most likely "blown" and should be replaced.

If the thin metal bar in the center of the 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.

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

Push On Fuse Panel Cover
Line up the plastic covers over the relay panel and the fuse panel. Gently snap them down in to place.

If the electrical problem, such as the wipers, lights, radio, door locks or HVAC system not working, is still not resolved by replacing the fuse, you may have a shorted wire somewhere or the component needs to be replaced.
