Mini Fuse replacement
When Do Mini 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 Mini.
The electrical system in your Mini 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 Mini'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 Mini's owners manual may save you time in finding where they are hiding.
When your Mini'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 Mini's electrical system to make sure there isn't something wrong and causing the fuse to fail.
When a fuse fails, you’ll need someone to diagnose the problem and replace the fuse. That’s when you can turn to AutoGuru!
