This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Nissan Murano SUV in checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or the interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Maxima, Juke, Rogue, Altima, Xterra, Pathfinder, Sentra, Cube, Armada, Leaf, Quest, Frontier, Teana, 370Z, GT-R, Titan, G25, G37, M35, QX56, QX60 and M37 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2014 Murano is equipped with the relatively newer style of low profile mini blade fuses.

They can also be replaced with the older and slightly taller standard mini blade fuses which will stick out of the socket a bit.

New fuses in a variety of amperage ratings such as 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, etc can be purchased at Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, NAPA, Pep Boys, Discount Auto Parts or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is included at the top right corner of the interior passenger compartment electrical block.

The engine bay fuse box is located on the right side of the engine bay just to the right of the 12V automotive battery and the engine air filter box.

Push in the tab on the front edge of the cover and the tab on the rear edge of the cover to release the retaining clips.

Gently pull off the fuse box cover and turn it over to view the fuse location diagram.

There is also another fuse location diagram in your owner's manual.

The interior passenger compartment electrical panel is located under a plastic cover on the lower left area of the dashboard near where the driver's left knee would reside.

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

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Hold the old fuse up to a light source to check it.

If the metal strip inside the translucent plastic center part of the old fuse appears to be burnt or broken, it is most likely "blown" and should be replaced with a new one of the same amperage rating.

If the thin metal bar in the center of the old fuse appears to be intact, it 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 low profile mini blade fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25) straight in to the socket.

Push on the engine bay fuse box cover until the two retaining clips click securely in to place.

Pop Cover Back In Place
Re-insert the fuse puller tool in to its holder at the top right of the interior fuse block.

Line up the access cover and gently snap it back in to place on the dashboard.

Check the electrical component you were having issues with such as the headlights, power windows, power seats, tail lights, horn, radio, windshield wipers, A/C (air conditioning) system or the 12V accessory power outlet.

If you are still having the problem, there may be a shorted wire somewhere or the component itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.
