How to Replace the Fuses in a Hyundai Sonata

by Contributor

The Hyundai Sonata was created in 1989 and redesigned in 2006. No matter the trim or year that you own, it's possible to blow a fuse at some time. When this happens, you can easily and quickly replace it with a new fuse with no tools and a few minutes of your time.

Step 1

Turn off your car before you replace a fuse. Find the fuse box, located in the passenger compartment under the dashboard on the left of the driver's side.

Step 2

Remove the fuse box cover and find the location of the fuse you need on the inside of the cover. A 2000 Hyundai Sonata, for instance, houses the dashboard illumination light fuse in slot 24.

Step 3

Pull the fuse out using a fuse puller or your thumb and index finger. Check the fuse to verify it's blown--indicated by a melted or broken wire.

Step 4

Click a new fuse that has the same amperage rating into the slot. In the example of the illumination light fuse in Step 2, the 2000 Hyundai Sonata uses a 10 amp mini fuse.

Replace the fuse box cover and restart your car. Test out your new fuse to ensure that it's working properly.

Tip

  • There may be spare fuses already in the fuse box, so check there before you purchase a new one.

Items you will need

  • Fuse puller
  • Same rating fuse
