This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2013) Nissan Rogue in checking and replacing a blown electrical fuse in the engine bay or passenger compartment fuse blocks.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, Juke, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Armada, Quest, Frontier, Titan, 370Z, G37, M37, EX37, FX37, JX35, and QX56 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Assortment boxes of new fuses in a variety of amperage ratings can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts or online at Amazon.

The only tool needed to access the engine bay fuse panel is a small flathead screwdriver. A black plastic fuse puller tool is included on the passenger compartment fuse block.

Pry Out Air Intake
The engine bay fuse block is located at the back right corner of the engine bay closest to the driver's seat.

In order to access the fuse block, you'll need to remove the air intake tube by removing three black plastic fasteners. Gently pry up the center of the fasteners first and then pull them straight out.

Then move to the upper part of the air intake tube where it enters the air cleaner box and gently pry them apart. Set the air intake aside in a safe place.

To check if the old fuse is "blown" or has been "short circuited" hold it up near a light. If the thin metal bar inside the 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 issue troubleshooting steps.

If the metal strip in the translucent plastic middle section of the fuse appears to be broken, the fuse is blown and must be replaced with one of the same amperage rating (e.g. "5", "10", "15", "20").

Push the new fuse straight in to the block.
