The fuse box inside of your vehicle contains all of the fuses that protect the electrical circuits. It also contains a handful of circuit breakers as well. It functions just like the fuse box in your home and can be used to toggle the flow of electricity on and off in the same way you can with your fuse box at home. It is likely that your vehicle contains multiple fuse boxes and their location will vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle.
Signs of a bad fuse box
- Failing electrical circuits
- Smokey smell near the area of the fuse box
