Fuse Block Location

Postby Vibe Rater » Sun Mar 22, 2009 3:17 pm

I need to check the fuse for the front washer sprayer. The manual says the washer fuse is in the interior fuse block. Under the instrument panel on the driver's side. I looked there and could not find it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Its there!! there is a black cover over it.

Its a kinda skinny rectangle shape. The clips are on the short sides.

I had to get into it to replace the cig/power fuse.

I was going to post something like "congratulations on having the car for XX months and never having to find the fuse panel before" but I got lost trying to figure out when you eventually did get your Vibe. It took you an insane amount of time to get that car after you ordered it.

the fuse block is about behind the little storage bin in the dash left of the steering wheel, under the mirror/dimmer control. If you pull that bin out, you can see the top side of the fuse block. Unfortunately, the fuses are on the bottom of the fuse block, you have to contort on the floor and look up

yep, lay on your back on the driver side look strait up and it's on the right hand side of the steering colum. it's lone and skinny with a printing of what fuse is what right on the cover.

the other one is under the hood and that is where you will find the little white plastic fuse puller needed to pull out the mini-fuses that our cars use.

Excellent posts all. I got it now. Hopefully I don't have to change a washer pump, but if I do, there's a great pictorial on this board. Thanks everyone.
