This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) GM Chevrolet Camaro in checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Spark, Cruze, Malibu, Sonic, Impala, Traverse, Tahoe, Trax, SS, GMC Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave and the Holden Barina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2014 Camaro is equipped with standard mini blade fuses as shown below in Picture # 13.

Replacement fuses in a variety of amperage ratings (5, 10, 15, 20 & 25) can be purchased at Walmart, Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts, Napa, AutoZone or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is included at the front left area of the engine bay electrical block.

The engine bay fuse box is located at the front left side of the engine bay just behind the headlight and in front of the shock tower.

Press in the release tab on the front edge of the fuse box to release the cover.

Swing the fuse box cover open towards the rear of the vehicle.

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

Pull the white plastic fuse puller tool off the front left area of the engine bay fuse block.

The interior passenger compartment fuse block is located beneath a plastic access panel on the left outside edge of the dashboard.

Pull Out Old Fuse
Squeeze together the end of the fuse puller tool to open the jaws.

Place the jaws of the fuse puller tool over the old fuse you'd like to check or change.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Line Up Access Cover
Hold the old fuse up to a light source.

If the thin metal bar inside the middle of the old fuse looks broken or "burnt" then the fuse is probably "blown" and should be changed.

If the thin metal strip inside the translucent plastic middle part of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is most likely still good. But since new fuses are so inexpensive, it should still be replaced as part of your electrical problem 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.

Line up the access cover for the interior passenger compartment fuse block and gently push it back in to place on the outside left edge of the dashboard.

Close Fuse Box Cover
Replace the white plastic fuse puller tool in to its holder at the front left area of the engine bay fuse panel.

Swing the plastic cover closed towards the front of the vehicle and push it down to secure the retaining clip.

Check the electrical device that you were having issues with such as the radio, power windows, wipers, headlights, tail lights, power seat, door locks, horn, etc.

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