How to Replace a Fuse in Your New or Used Grapevine Chevrolet

When something electrical like your stereo, A/C, power windows, dome lights, etc. stops working in your new or used Chevrolet, often times it’s because a fuse has blown. I’ll never forget the time my radio suddenly stopped working in my first car. Of course, I immediately panicked thinking that I was going to have get a new radio. Come to find out, all I had to do was replace a tiny little fuse. In a matter of minutes, I was back to jamming out in my Chevy.

If this happens to you, the first thing you’ll need to do is locate the fuse box. It will typically be in your glove box or on the left side of your steering wheel toward the floor. If you have difficulty finding it, refer to your owners manual or call Classic Chevrolet’s service department and ask them. Once you’ve found the fuse box, you’ll need to figure out which fuse is blown. Most cars will have a diagram you can refer to that will tell you which fuse controls what and where it’s located. When you locate the fuse you think might be blown, inspect the metal wire or strip in the fuse. If you’re not sure what a blown fuse looks like, pull another one out and compare the two.

As I’m sure you’ve already noticed by now, there are different colors of fuses with different numbers on them. You must replace a fuse with the correct color and number. Some cars come equipped with extra fuses. If not, simply head down to your local auto store or Classic Chevrolet and pick up the necessary fuse. Don’t worry, there are pretty cheap. I’d also recommend buying a few extras of each kind and storing them in your Chevrolet’s glove box in case this happens again in the future. Insert the new fuse, and you are good to go! Of course if you have any issues at all, don’t hesitate to give Classic Chevrolet a call or swing by the North Texas car dealership.
