I drive a 2003 Pontiac Gran Prix. Where can I purchase a cover for my instrument panel fuse block on the driver's side? It fell out when I opened the door, and I was unable to find it!
There is an instrument panel fuse block on the drivers left side of the console. The cover would fall out and I would place it back in, however, the last time it fell out I was unable to find it. It is a small gray vinyl square. Please help, I not even sure that is the correct name for it! When I open my car door, there is this gaping hole! I want to replace the cover before something happens to the fuse(s) and connectors. Thank you so much!

You would need to find that in a salvage yard, covers are not sold separately if available (if available from the GM dealer at all), you would need to buy the whole fuse block and wiring harness, about $1500.00 (USD), very expensive item.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There is an interior fuse panel located on the passenger side of the dashboard. If you open the passenger door on the side of the dash you will see a cover that has a finger pull. Lift it off and you will find the fuse panel directly behind it.
There is one for the power indoors and one for the headlights in the instrument panel fuse block located on the end of the drivers side of the dash. You will need to open the door and remove the panel labeled fuses to gain access to them.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
Open driver side door, remove fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel and check the instrument cluster 10A fuse behind on the fuse block (third row from the top, fourth fuse position note: first two position may be empty). If fuse checks out the connector behind the instrument cluster may have worked loose. Remove steering column covers, remove bezel around the instrument panel (this is held on with push clips), remove four screws from the cluster and ease the cluster out just enough to see and correct the problem. hope this has helped.
there are two fuse boxes. And the interior has a few diff locations. Open the driver door and look at the end of the dash there should be a door there. If not there look on the passenger side for the same thing and if not there its under driver side of dash. If you find the panel and fuses are ok look under the hood near battery probably under the support brace that runs above it and you will prob find a bad one in there. Also after you find it and before you replace the fuse its a good idea to look and make sure there isnt any change in either of the sockets. That happens alot. If not the either you were drawing to much, a plug for something you plugged in is bad or the least common and unlikely is that the fuse was just old.
did you check the fuse block side of the instrument panel, it should be fixed in it, I don't know either the your car is left hand drive or right hand drive so check both side of the instrument panel which is the covered by door, if you have a good look you can see that side cover can pull it out you have to use some thing like plastic or wooden wedge for open the side cove after open the side cove you can see small fuse block inside, top of the fuse box you can see folded fuse diagram have fix in it. is this information helped you?
Hello: Instrument panel fuse block- located on the instrument panel (passenger side consel) near the
floor. Remove the panel then the fuse block cover. Engine compartment fuse block: Under the hood on driver side near the battery. You may have to remover cover to access the fuse block. Rear compartment fuse block Located in the trunk. Access the fuse through the trunk panel on the driver side. The inside of the fuse block covers give you the location, size of fuse and purpose. Hope this helps.
There are fuses for hi and low blower fan inside the interior fuse panels I know the high one is on the passenger side and believe the low is on the drivers side tho they may both be on the passenger side read the cover after you pull them off easy to find once you read the label if those are both good then its probably the blower resistor, fuse check first.
its easier to test them all get a test light turn your ignition to on position turn park lights on and dimmer switch to fully lit position now test each side of every fuse until you find one that only lights the test light on one side replace it. in case you have never done this before its easy the fuses have an open at both top corners stick test light tip in it and the other side to a ground.clean metal surface .
It's under the hood, on the driver's side, under a square, black box with a lightning symbol on it. Loosen the flower-shaped screw that holds the lid of the box down, remove the lid, flip it upside down and when you look at the inside of the lid, you'll see a map of all your car's fuses. There's also a fuse diagram on the very end of the dash, but it's accessible only when you open the driver's side door. When you're driving, that end of the dash is blocked by the closed door.
