Identifying and Changing the Fuse
Squeeze the locking tab and swing open the lid on the TIPM. Open your owner's manual to the section labeled "Maintaining your Vehicle," then find the subsection labeled "Fuses." Use the list of fuse cavities and descriptions to determine which fuse you need to replace. Remove the fuse from its cavity with the included fuse puller or a pair of needle-nose pliers. Press a new fuse of the same amperage rating into the cavity.
The square cartridge fuses -- 20A to 60A in your Durango -- carry high current. The small micro fuses are usually 20A or less. In a pinch, you can swap fuses from non-essential systems, but never swap out a fuse for one with a higher amp rating. For example, if you need a 20A micro fuse, take one from slot "F93" for the cigarette lighter. The lighter is a non-essential system and you can live without it until you get to the parts store to replace the fuse.
Shut off your car before working with the fuses. Find your fuse box, located on the driver's side of the dashboard.
Open the fuse box by pulling it. Look at the inside cover to find out the location of the fuse you need.
Remove the fuse with a fuse puller or gently use your fingers. Inspect the inside wire-if it's blown the wire is either melted or broken.
Replace the blown fuse with one of the same rating. You can find this information written on the inside of the fuse cover. For example, a 1997 Dodge Intrepid uses a 10-amp mini fuse for its back up lights.
Close the fuse box and restart your Intrepid. Verify your electrical issue has been resolved.
Items you will need
Open the hood and remove the negative battery connection from the battery. The negative connection is the black cable. Place the cable away from the battery.
Open the driver's-side front door and locate the fuse box. The fuse box is on the side of the dashboard where the door butts up against it. The door must be in the open position to reach the fuse box. The cover is stamped "fuse box."
Remove the fuse box cover with your hands. No tools are required to remove the cover--simply pull on the lever.
Locate the fuse that needs to be replaced. The fuse box label is located on the back side of the cover.
Remove the fuse using a fuse puller by pushing the fuse puller onto the fuse. The fuse puller will lock onto the fuse; pull it out.
Inspect the fuse after removal to make sure it's blown; the thin, metal strip in the center of the fuse will no longer be intact.
Push a new fuse into position in the fuse block using your hands.
