The position of the fuse box in a 1996 Ford Econoline allows for quick and easy fuse maintenance. Fuses help protect electronic circuits from damaging loads; look for the fuse box if a brake light fails, a head light will not turn on, or when you discover an electronics malfunction. Replace a compromised fuse as soon as you can.
Open the door on the driver's side of the van.
Move your hand slowly down the steering column toward the floor. Stop when you find a panel on the bottom right of the steering column.
