How to Locate the Fuse Box in a Corolla

by Jeremiah Blanchard

A Toyota Corolla has numerous electronic components which require fuses to operate properly. Every now and then, a fuse will burn out or a short circuit may occur. When this happens you'll need to change the fuse. In order to change the fuse you have to locate the fuse box. A Toyota Corolla has two main fuse compartments, and its ideal to know the location for both if you ever need to change a fuse.

Step 1

Look under the steering wheel, to the left of the hood release lever. The interior fuse box panel is square with a plastic lip used for a handle. Pull on the plastic lip to open the fuse box.

Step 2

Release the hood lock by pulling on the hood release latch under the steering wheel.

Step 3

Lift up the hood then locate the battery.

Follow the battery lead cable toward the vehicle passenger compartment. The lead cable will run toward the fuse box. The fuse box--depending on the year of your Corolla--will have a metal or black plastic cover. Newer model Corolla fuse boxes are labeled, and will have a fuse reference diagram. Pull the cover off to access the fuses.

Tip

  • Consult your vehicle owners manual to see a fuse diagram and location of your fuse box.

Warnings

  • Always disconnect power from your battery prior to changing fuses.
  • Only use proper fitting fuses. Never try to force a fuse into position.
