This little micro fuse is a pain in the back to get. People is taking advantage of customers in need of this little fuse. This have been selling at double the price of any other fuse a d not available to buy anywhere. My 2014 Overland did not even bring one as spare this is ridiculous, what if my car blows one in the middle of the desert. Jeep is so cheap that not even spare of this sucker are included in your new car even knowing that this are not readily available. Incredible

Just curious as to how much $ this fuse is? Either way, if getting stuck in the desert, it may be time to buy a box of random fuses and a couple water bottles. I'm not trying to sound snarky or anything, just saying be prepared when driving through harsh conditions.

The problem is that they are not available in any store or parts service dealer.
I had to order them and they have not yet arrive after 3 days.

pretty sure nothing that is fused by that will strand you anywhere! All the major systems are protected by much larger modules etc. Even if one of those failed...there are others you could pull and replace to get you out of the "desert"

Got the fuse today.

Why do you have blown fuses on a 2014 Jeep (don't blast me for asking)?Seems that this would be something that needs warranty attention (whatever is blowing fuses on a new vehicle). :confused:

I thought a couple months ago that someone said the fuses were available at Autozone?

Well I do see humor in things. Puerto Rico - > deserts, deserts - > Puerto Rico... nah. Sandy beaches or tropical forests maybe. :rolleyes:

I'm guessing that the Littlefuse sales reps got huge bonuses from their work with Chrysler.

Between the Micro2 fuses and the MCase fuses, we're stuck with single-source problems.

These can be ordered in quantity through distributors (though the MCase fuses seem to have availability issues) .. but someone would have to front the bux and make up fuse kits..

None of my clients have any leverage with Littlefuse, else I'd try to convince them to get fuse kits out (like they have with every other automotive fuse on the planet).

Someone at Mopar needs to create an MCase kit and a Micro2 kit.
