This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013) Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in checking or changing an electrical fuse in either the engine bay or passenger compartment fuse blocks.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the GMC Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, Chevy Colorado, Avalanche, Express, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, SS, Camaro, Corvette, Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, and Enclave may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

To pry off the engine bay fuse box, you may need a standard flathead screwdriver.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is provided on the underside of the passenger compartment fuse box cover. If the fuse puller tool is missing, you may also use a pair of needle nose pliers.

The second generation Silverado is equipped with standard mini blade fuses which can be purchased at any auto parts store or online at Amazon.

The engine bay fuse box is located right (driver side) of the engine bay next to the power steering fluid reservoir.

Pull off the fuse box cover by lifting up the left side to disengage the tabs from their slots. You may need to pry up the left side with a flathead screwdriver.

There is a fuse location diagram on the underside of the fuse box cover.

Hold Up To Light Source
Squeeze the end of the white plastic fuse puller tool to open the jaws and place them over the fuse you want to check or replace.

Hold the fuse up to a light source to check if it is "blown" or not.

If the thin metal strip 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 troubleshooting process.

Assortment boxes of new mini blade fuses in a variety of amperage ratings (E.G. 5, 10, 15, 20) can be bought at various retailers such as Wal-Mart, Pep Boys, Advance Auto Parts or online at Amazon.
