Fuse Location Chart

Although this may seem very basic to many people, some people don't even know the easy way to check fuses. I've seen people suffer through the big pain of taking each and every fuse out one at a time to see if any of them are burnt. There's a lot easier way of checking fuses without taking them out.

Ever notice that fuses have two small metal "tabs" on top of them? Those "tabs" or prongs are for checking them with a tester. You can buy a specific tester for this task but an ordinary 12V tester will work.

How do you test a fuse with a 12V tester?

Ground the wire on the tester to a good clean ground. Usually they have an alligator clip on the end of them for this purpose.

Then all you have to do is put the tester on one side of the fuse and then on the other side of the fuse. If when you touch them, only one side makes the tester light up it means that the fuse is bad. If both sides make the tester light then the fuse is good.

This may seem like such a simple thing, but you wouldn't believe how much time and agony it will save you.

  • Whenever you change the rear end gears to another ratio (e.g. 2.73's to 4.10's) you have to change the speedometer gear too. Why? Because when you change the rear end gears you also change the ratio between how fast the speedo gear is spinning and how fast the car is actually going.

    Here is a chart to figure out which speedometer gear you will need.
