Chrysler PT Cruiser Fuse replacement
When do Chrysler PT Cruiser fuses need to be replaced?
Just like in your home a car also has fuses. That is to protect the wiring, electrical system, components and accessories on your Chrysler PT Cruiser.
The electrical system in your Chrysler PT Cruiser contains several kilometres of wiring, and fuses protect each circuit against failure.
Fuses protect components from electricity overload/surges. Fuses are small, usually cylindrical or rectangular and come in different colours. A modern vehicle may have 40 or more fuses, due to all the electrical components found in Chrysler PT Cruiser's.
Fuses can be found in fuse boxes, these can be located in a few areas. Typically you may find fuses in the engine bay, under the dash by the instrument panel, or under a seat. The Chrysler PT Cruiser's owners manual may save you time in finding where they are hiding.
When your Chrysler PT Cruiser's fuse fails it will stop certain components from working like your lights, stereo, ignition, air conditioning and so on. If you notice an electrical component that's not working the fuse could have blown.
A fuse can fail on its own or it can fail due to a surge in electricity. The job of a fuse is to break a circuit and protect electrical components from getting damaged. When this happens it's best to have an auto electrician check the Chrysler PT Cruiser's electrical system to make sure there isn't something wrong and causing the fuse to fail.
