How can I tell if my car fuse is blown?

I think I blew a fuse in my car.


Answer by  PatW (40)

Most fuses can be checked visually. If the metal strip inside is broken or the fuse looks "smoked" it is blown. It is faster to check fuses with a test light though. Look for a fuse that only lights up the tester on one side instead of both, this will indicate the blown fuse. Remember to check ALL fuse boxes.

The easy way to test the fuse is testing light. Touch the both sides (1 side at a time) so that each side should light up the test light. If 1 side light up the fuse has blown. Then replace it with a new one.

Locate the fuse box and read the label for the fuse you think may be blown. Pull it out and see if the contact is broken inside of it .

The best way is to locate your fuse panel either under the hood or in side the car and pull the fuse to see if it's blown. It will have a burnt area and the metal contact should be broken.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

It's pretty easy in most cases. It is best to remove the suspected fuse from the fuse block with the appropriate tool. Look carefully at the bridge inside the fuse. if it is burn or broken then it is blown. Sometime it may not look blown but you can check to see if it has full continuity using a multimeter.

Pull out the effected fuse and check it to see if it s blown. If u haven't got multimeter-use a torch and a bit of wire to check the fuse

The easiest way, if it is not one of the type of fuses that you can "sse" if it is blown, is to check it with an ohmmeter to see if it has continuity.
