How to Remove the Back Cover to Replace the Fuse

I think the fuse is blown, but it is in such an awkward place that it is hard to see visually. Either way, replacing it thru the power cord access would require the manual dexterity of ... well, I'm not sure it could be done.

So, other than "remove the screws that secure the back," does anyone have experience removing the back cover?

    Here is what I did: I was able to full the fuse by using a pair of tongs shoved thru the power cord access. The fuse was blown (I think due to a recent storm).

    I did not want to go thru the effort of unscrewing all the back black screws. There are quite a few, and pulling the back off would be tough. Also, I would have to lift the TV out from the entertainment center, which I could not do by myself.

    Instead, I used my Dremel to "enlarge" the size of the power cord access hole. I opened up another 2-3 square inches to the left. Then I was able to insert a new fuse.

Unscrew all the back black screws and gently pull the back off.
if a fuse is blown, you most likely have a severe power supply issue.usually the str would be shorted , a bridge rectifier wil also do this, a faulty ptc will blow a fuse also.
check how the fuse blew, if it looks violent then you have a short.

Battery good. but no power to start van. no dash light, power windows etc... battery connects clean and tight. New alt

Check fuses. Many vehicles now have two fuse boxes. One, in the cabin and another under the hood.

The box under the hood often has fuses that protect many of the vehicle's higher level electronics, systems and other high current devices. Get an automotive fuse tester, voltmeter or physically remove & visually inspect for open / blown fuses (visual inspection is the least reliable method) in BOTH locations.

Replace any open fuse with proper size & type as determined by the owner manual or legend that often appears on a label affixed to the protective fusebox cover. If it blows again, do not replace the fuse. There is a problem that should be corrected before re-attempting. if you can't locate / correct the problem, you should have the vehicle checked by a pro.

Good luck!

Power window fuse


Open the driver's side door to your Impala. Make sure that the car is parked and turned off. To be safe, wait a few minutes after turning off the car to discharge any stored electricity. If you have the ability to turn off the dome light, you can also do that as an added safety measure.

Locate the fuse box panel. The panel is located on the end of the dashboard; while the door is closed, it is flush against the door. It has letters engraved into the plastic that read "Fuses" and a small indentation in the center. Place a finger in the indentation and pull to remove the fuse box cover. If this is the first time you have changed a fuse, it may be difficult to remove. You can use a small flathead screwdriver to help pry it from the dashboard. Be careful not to force it; you could break the clips holding the fuse box panel on.

Examine the chart printed on the inside of the fuse box cover. This is a map of the fuses inside the box and the electrical components to which they correspond. The top of the map corresponds to the row of fuses closest to the hood of the car and running vertically. By looking from the map to the fuse box, you should be able to determine which fuse powers the malfunctioning component. If you do not see the component listed, replace the fuse box cover, open the passenger-side door and open the fuse box on that side. There is another set of fuses on that side of the car.

Find the white plastic fuse grippers inside the fuse box. They are located above the fuses, but below the bundles of wiring, and stick out handle-first toward you. By pinching the end closest to you and tugging, you can remove them from their holder. Be sure to take note of where they should go, so you can return them later.

Snap the fuse grippers onto the blown fuse. Holding them firmly in the middle of the grips, tug the fuse out of the box toward you. It may take some pressure, but the fuses are durable and can withstand pulling. If the fuse grippers are coming loose from the fuse, move your fingers closer to the fuse and grip more tightly.

Find a replacement fuse. There are several fuses provided inside the plastic fuse box cover. Check the blown fuse to see if there is a match. If so, remove it from the fuse box cover. If not, take the blown fuse to an auto parts store and ask the employees to help you find the right replacement.

Push the replacement fuse firmly into the fuse socket. You will feel it snap into place when you have pushed far enough. Place the fuse grippers back into their holder, and replace the fuse box cover. Turn on the car and see if your electrical component is functioning again. If so, you are finished, and you may discard the blown fuse according to your local ordinances. If not, the problem is more complex than a blown fuse, and you may want to take your car to a qualified mechanic.

My 1998 Silhouette back door won't unlock with key or fob

follow the steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Enter the passenger side of the vehicle and look under the dashboard, beneath the glove box and near the floor mat. With the aid of a flashlight, locate a large panel, which is held in place by screws. Unscrew the panel manually or use a screwdriver if the screws are too tight.
    • 2 Locate the fuse panel. The panel houses long rows of fuses mounted to the panel. Consult the vehicle's owner manual to determine which of the fuses controls the automatic doors
    • 3 Remove the fuse that controls the automatic doors with a pair of fuse pliers, or carefully with a pair of regular pliers. Examine the fuse by shining the flashlight close against it. If the metal bar inside the fuse is broken, the fuse has been blown.
    • 4 Replace the blown fuse with a fuse of equal amperage. Push the new fuse in place, confirming it is a snug fit.
    • 5 Test the automatic doors before screwing the fuse panel cover back in place. If the doors close automatically after you manually give them a tug, the problem was the blown fuse. Replace the fuse panel cover under the glove box.
    • 6 Test the automatic doors with your remote control. If they do not open or close, the problem is with the remote. Pop the rear cover off of the remote with a screwdriver and replace the battery.

No pwer, sound or picture

start by checking the power at the mains terminal, then check the continuity of the power input cable. if its healthy then confirm that all fuse in the cable plug is ok.remove the cover and check on the switch mode power supply.conduct a visual inspection to acertain any blown component like the fuse, swollen filter capacitor, the burnt resistors and diodes. if they do not seem to appear phisically burnt then conduct a meeasuring test with a multimeter.
replace any faulty component and test the television by opening the power input fuse and connecting a 100w bulb in series and feed in the power. if the tv oscillates and the bulb lights up then gets dim gradually then the tv is working hence you can now remove the series test bulb and place back the fuse and connect all the cables in place and feed in the power and you see your tv lighting up

My headlights are not working how can identified which fuse it is on the box?

Make the FixYa experience better for everyone by voting.


My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave', for today.

Your fuse -- if, in fact, it's blown -- is merely indicative of a bad ground, water in the wiring, etc. In fact, the fuse is connected to the headlight relay that actually closes the circuitry so that you headlight go on.

With that in mind, let's begin.

First Step:

Do a Thorough Visual Inspection
Do a thorough visual and "hands-on" underhood inspection before starting any diagnostic procedure! You can find the cause of many problems by just looking, thereby saving yourself a lot of time.
• Has the vehicle been serviced
recently? Sometimes things get
reconnected in the wrong place, or
not at all.
• Don't take shortcuts. Inspect hoses
and wiring which may be difficult to
see due to location.
• Inspect the air cleaner and
ductwork for defects.
• Check sensors and actuators for
• Inspect the illumination system wires for:
- Damaged terminals.
- Split or cracked connectors
- Splits, cuts or breaks in the inline fuses, circuit brreaker
wires and insulation.
• Inspect all electrical leads for:
- Correct wiring routing. Refer to vehicle
service manual.
- Pinches and kinks.
- Splits, cuts or breaks.
• Inspect wiring for:
- Contact with sharp edges.
- Contact with hot surfaces, such as
exhaust manifolds.
- Pinched, burned or chafed insulation.
- Proper routing and connections.
• Check electrical connectors for:
- Corrosion on pins.
- Bent or damaged pins.
- Contacts not properly seated in
- Bad wire crimps to terminals

Instructions on how to find the headlight relay

1. Locate the electronic module that houses the relays. The Navigator has a set of relays that are all connected in a strip module.
2. Search for the module above the accelerator pedal under the dash. The module is directly above the visible diagnostic tool connector. The module is a rectangular black box with a snap lid. It will be easier if you remove the module before trying to remove the relay.
3. Find the metal support that the module mounts onto and slide the module down. Once the module is free of the support, bring it out into the open. When the module is out in the open the lid will be easy to remove.
4. Remove the headlight relay, have it tested, and replace it with the new one if needed. Place the lid back on the module and slide it back up the support arm.
5. Start the Navigator and check all the lights, especially the turn signals and high beams.

I've purposely left your question unanswered because I wanted you to approach the problem in its totality, Now let's check that fuse:


Things You'll Need: Fuse puller and a fuse of the same rating

1. Turn the car off before touching the fuses. Locate the fuse box in your Lincoln Navigator, left of your steering wheel and next to your brake pedal.
2. Open the cover of the fuse box and pull out the fuse for the outage you're experiencing. Refer to the back of the fuse box for a list of fuses and their location by number and a corresponding fuse amperage number. For example, your audio fuse is listed as number 1 with an amperage of 25A. The amperage gives insight into the type of fuse you'll need to replace the blown one with.
3. Examine the fuse and make sure it's blown. The wire in the middle of the fuse looks burned if it's blown. Check the other fuses as well, making sure none of them have been burned out either.
4. Replace the blown fuse with one of the same amp rating. Using a higher rated fuse causes the fuse to blow again.
5l Push the fuse into the clips so that it stays in place and close the fuse box. Verify the electrical issue has been resolved.

All the best,
