There are 2 fuse boxes / fuse panels in nearly every Ford product: one directly above the driver's left foot (when the driver is actually sitting in the driver's seat). The other is inside the engine compartment, on the right side - contains high current fuses.
There is extensive coverage of fuses and the circuits each one protects Owners Manual.
See "Related Questions" below for sources of free online Owners Manuals for 1996+ Ford & Mercury products.
Checking & Changing A Fuse Inside the fuse box cover is a small white plastic tool for pulling fuses out.
Inspect the center section of the fuse to determine if it has 'blown' - it will be obvious if the metal strip has melted.
Insert a replacement fuse of the same color / amperage protection by simply pressing it into the fuse-slot.
Checking a fuse Generally, if a fuse is 'blown' you can tell by looking at the fuse. Look at the wire looking thing in the top on the fuse. It'll look kind of broken or burned or just otherwise messed up. If you're not sure what a good fuse looks like, go to an auto store and look at a new fuse. Then look at your fuses and compare appearances.
Getting the engine compartment Power Distribution box cover off There are actually two separate covers. One is for the circuit breakers and one for the fuses. There's a tab in the center that you squeeze together and it pops off. In the cover you'll find spare fuses and a puller. If you still need to get the breaker cover off, there's a tab on the corner marked "lift". With the other cover removed, you can then unsnap the tab and wiggle it out.

Can you do that ? Honda ELD Is the B+ voltage at the I/P fuse box . Check B+ voltage at the ignition switch . Only U can find the problem by electrical testing , we would only be guessing .

I have cadillac deville 2003 my battery reads good but my front fuse panel fuse number eight itpcm/batt keeps poopping car shuts off I am trying to figure out wat is ausing this need hel


This fuse has nothing to do with the battery .
PCM BATT Fuse 10A Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Theft Deterrent Module. That just means it's B+ voltage feed for the PCM an theft module . IT actually supply's B+ voltage too two different feed's for the PCM . Connector 1 terminals 20 & 21 . You have a dead short to ground on one of those feeds or your PCM or theft control module is shorted . If you don't know automotive electrical , I suggest very strongly you take to someone who is !

Why wont the cruise control work on a 2005 ford taurus but the cruise light comes on


The first thing to check is the tail lights. The cruise control will not work if any lights are out. Changing to LED tail lights also causes the cruise to not work.

Daytime running lamps control module. Fuse #37 - inside the passenger compartment or under hood fuse box ? Do you know how to use a volt meter an wiring diagram to find electrical problems ? You have a direct short to ground or fuse #37 wouldn't blow. Underhood fuse box fuse # 37 is for the park lamps .Supply's B+ voltage to the daytime running lamps module an the headlamp switch plus 37
PARK LP Fuse
20A
Headlamp Switch, Body Control Module (BCM), and Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU)...
Park, Tail and Marker Lamps
The park, tail and marker lamps, including the license lamps, are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the PARK or HEADLAMP position, or anytime the headlights are requested. The PARK LP fuse in the underhood accessory wiring junction block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, battery positive voltage is applied to the park lamp circuit. The parklamp circuit then applies battery positive voltage to the DRL control module and to all the marker, park and tail lamps. The front park lamps are grounded at G101. The rear park lamps are grounded at G302. The license plate lamps are a part of the rear park lamp circuit and are grounded at G302 The inadvertent power control feature prevents the park lights from remaining on more than 10 minutes if left ON. If the park lights are turned ON after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or is in the ACCY position, they will remain ON until turned OFF or the battery runs dead.
