This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Hyundai Tucson SUV in changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Hyundai and Kia vehicles such as the Accent, Elantra, Sonata, Azera, Veloster, Tiburon, Genesis, Lavita, Veracruz, Santa Fe, ix35, Equus, Cadenza, Forte, Optima, Rio, Soul, Sedona, Sorento, Spectra and Sportage may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Assortment boxes of new low profile mini blade fuses in a variety of amperage ratings (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25) are available at stores such as Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, Napa, AutoZone and Pep Boys or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is included at the front left of the engine bay fuse block. If the tool is missing, you can also use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

The engine bay fuse box is located at the right rear area of the engine bay, closest to the driver's seat.

Press in the release tab on the rear edge of the fuse box cover before pulling it straight off.

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

Remove the white plastic fuse puller tool located near the front left corner of the fuse block.

Pull the old fuse straight out of its socket.

Replace Fuse Puller Tool
Hold the old fuse up to a light source.

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

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

This 2014 Tucson was equipped with the newer style "low profile" mini blade fuses. If necessary, you may also use the traditional standard mini blade fuses, which will just stick out of the socket a bit further.

Replace the white plastic fuse puller tool at the front left corner of the engine bay fuse block.

Pop In Access Panel
Line up the plastic fuse box cover over the electrical panel and gently snap it back in to place.

Insert the tabs on the top of the interior fuse block access panel and then gently snap in the bottom edge.

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