This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the revised 5th generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Chrysler Town & Country minivan in troubleshooting an electrical problem by checking and replacing a blown fuse or relay.

Owners of related Chrysler Group minivan vehicles such as the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Grand Voyager, Lancia Grand Voyager, Ram C/V Tradesman Cargo Van and the Volkswagen Routan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Assortment boxes of replacement mini blade fuses and relays with various amperage ratings (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20) can be bought at stores such as Wal-Mart, Advanced Auto Parts, Auto Zone, Napa and online at Amazon.

A yellow plastic fuse puller tool is included in the "integrated power module" engine bay fuse box. If the tool is missing, you could also use a pair of needle nose pliers.

Pinch To Open Jaws
The only fuse box or "integrated power module" in the Town & Country is located on the right side of the engine bay next to the 12V automotive battery.

Press the two release buttons on the right side of the fuse box and gently swing the hinged cover to the left.

There is a fuse location diagram on the underside of the cover and also another one in the owner's manual.

The yellow plastic fuse puller tool is located at the front left area of the fuse panel close to two large grey relays.

Hold Fuse Up To Light
Pinch the end of the fuse puller tool to open the jaws, place it over the fuse you want to check, and pull it straight out of the fuse block.

Hold up the old fuse to a light source to see if the thin metal strip inside is broken or "burnt".

If the thin metal bar inside the fuse is intact, the fuse is likely still good.

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

Close Fuse Panel Cover
Push a new mini blade fuse of the same amperage rating (E.G. 5, 10, 15, 20) straight in to the socket.

Swing the fuse panel cover closed to the right and gently push it down to engage the two retaining clips.

If changing the blown fuse has not fixed the electrical issue, you may have a wire that is shorted or a faulty component that needs to be replaced.
