Where Are the Fuse Boxes Located?
SAMPLE INSTALLATIONS:
940: Install Fuse No. 5 and 26
The fuses (and relays) are located in the central electrical unit behind the ashtray in the center console.

To obtain access to the central electrical unit:

Remove the ashtray. Pull out and depress the tongue.

Press up the section marked "electrical fuses-press" and remove the unit.

There are 25 fuses, see diagram for fuse designated/locations.

When installing a new fuse, be certain to use the proper amperage fuse. Spare fuses are located on each side of the fusebox.

If you find it difficult to remove a fuse, you will find a special fuse tool clipped in the fuse box.

960: Install Fuses No. 2, 13 and 18
The fuse box is located on the far left side of the dashboard. Spare fuses and the fuse tool are located in an illuminated compartment in the fuse box.

To gain access to the fuses, remove the cover.

Install one 20 amp fuse (#2), one 10 amp fuse (13), and one 15 amp fuse (#18).

When replacing the cover, push in the front edge first and then press into place.

The easiest wasy to see if a fuse is blow is to remove it. Refer to the list of fuses on the inside of the fuse box cover to see which one should be examined.

If a fuse has blown, check the sytem that runs on that particular fuse.

Pull the fuse straight out. From the side, examine the curved metal wire to see if it is broken. If so, put in a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse). Spare fuses are stored in a lit compartment in the fuse box:

1 x 15A (blue)
1 x 25A (pale yellow)
2 x 30A (green)

If you find it difficult to remove a fuse, you will find a special fuse tool clipped in the fuse box.

A label on the inside the cover indicates the amperage and the electrical components that are connected to each fuse.
