Tried to replace a blown fuse yet?

About 1/2 of the fuses in the box under the hood are micro fuses (micro2, I think).

I blew the fuse for the trailer right turn signal last night. Still have not found a replacement fuse. Auto parts houses all drew a blank, even the dealer had none. Parts houses had never seen that size. Nothing like having a readily available supply line before choosing to lead the way with tiny new fuses.

Have you checked Autozone? I believe I've seen them there

Thanks for the lead. There is an Autozone store about 20 miles down the hill who stocks them.

My local dealer dug me up one this afternoon. They won't be stocking them unless "demand grows". Sounds pretty weird to me.

Yeah strange, you'd think these small items they'd keep around just to have.. at least you got one!

Re: Tried to replace a blown fuse yet?

I think you're supposed to trade in the vehicle for a new one at that point...

Re: Tried to replace a blown fuse yet?

I have a couple of hot rods that use the old glass fuses. Now a buck and a quarter if you can even find them.

Re: Tried to replace a blown fuse yet?

Check if there are any spare fuses in the box. Some manufacturers do provide a few spares. The fuse label should say.

Huh?

Every Chrysler vehicle is going to have these fuses from this point on. They better hurry up and stock them. Did they use these same sorry excuses during the launch of mini-fuses?

One would think, but the dealer did not stock them. Had to make a run to their supplier.
