Replacing fuses

Replacing fuses  - Fuses - Maintenance and specifications - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

There are relay/fuse boxes located in the engine compartment, the passenger compartment, and the trunk.

If an electrical component fails to function, this may be due to a blown fuse. The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it.

To do so:

1. Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult to remove, a special fuse removal tool is located on the inside of the engine compartment fuse box cover.

2. From the side, examine the curved metal wire in the fuse to see if it is intact.

If the wire is broken, insert a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse).

If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system inspected by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

WARNING WARNING

Never use metal objects or fuses with higher amperage than those stated on the following pages. Doing so could seriously damage or overload the vehicle's electrical system.
