This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Dodge Journey SUV in troubleshooting an electrical problem by checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment fuse panels.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500 and Ram C/V Tradesman may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement mini blade fuses in a variety of amperage ratings can be purchased at Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA, AutoZone, Wal-Mart or online at Amazon.com.

A yellow plastic fuse puller tool is included on the engine bay fuse block. If the tool is missing you may also (carefully) use a pair of needle nose pliers with insulated rubber handles.

Hold Up To Light Source
Squeeze the larger end of the fuse puller tool to open the jaws and then place them over the fuse you'd like to check or replace.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the fuse panel and hold it up to a light source.

If the metal bar inside the center of the fuse is broken or appears "burnt" then the fuse has "blown" and should be replaced with a new one.

If the metal strip inside the fuse appears to be intact, the fuse may still be good.

But since new fuses are so inexpensive, either way it should still be replaced as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Push On Fuse Box Cover
Push a new mini blade fuses of the same amperage rating (E.G. 5, 10, 15, 20) straight in to the socket on the block.

(Be sure to not buy the relatively newer style of "low profile" mini blade fuses since they won't fit in to the socket. If your newer Dodge vehicle has low profile mini blade fuses, they can be replaced with standard mini blade fuses if necessary.)

Replace the fuse puller tool at the rear of the engine bay fuse box and push the cover back down in place.

Push the cover back on the interior passenger compartment fuse panel underneath the glove box.

Check the electrical component that you are having issues with such as the radio, tail lights, headlights, window wipers, power window motors or sunroof.

If there is still a problem, the component may be need to be replaced or there may be a shorted wire.
