How to Replace the Fuses in a Chrysler Sebringby Kyle McBride
Find the fuses in your 2007-through-2010 Chrysler Sebring in the totally integrated power module. The TIPM is against the driver-side fender in the engine compartment. Release the latches and remove the cover to access the fuses. Locate the desired fuse by looking in the "Fuses" section in your owner's manual and looking at the underside of the TIPM cover for the fuse map. Grasp and pull the fuse straight out. The mini-fuses are small, so you may need to use the fuse puller located inside the cover, or you can use a pair of needlenose pliers or a pair of hemostats to grasp and pull out the fuse. Match the new fuse to the old one in amperage and insert it into the slot. Do not go to a higher-amp fuse. If the correct fuse keeps blowing, there's a wiring problem you need to resolve.
Cartridge and Mini-Fuses
The TIPM contains both mini-fuses and cartridge fuses. Cartridge fuses are the large, block-looking fuses that protect the higher-amp circuits. These are usually 30A or 40A fuses in your TIPM. The mini-fuses are small and slender, usually 20A or less. Check the cartridge fuses the same as you do the mini-fuses by looking through the fuse case at the filament. If the filament is broken, the fuse is blown. Replace the TIPM cover and latch it securely to prevent water infiltration.
