How to Replace the Fuses in a Kia Spectra

by Editorial Team

Whether you are driving a sedan or hatchback Kia Spectra, the process to change a blown electrical fuse is the same, no matter the model year. Switch it for a new one yourself in just a few minutes with no tools.

Step 1

Shut down your Kia Spectra first. Locate the fuse box on the driver's side under the dashboard and near the kick panel.

Step 2

Remove the fuse box cover to access the fuses. Read the list on the inside cover to review the fuses there. For example the cigarette lighter fuse in a 2001 Kia Spectra is two columns over, in the second row.

Step 3

Pull out the fuse and verify the wire inside is burnt or broken. Find a new fuse that has the same rating listed for the fuse you removed. In this example, the cigarette lighter uses a 15 amp fuse.

Step 4

Push the new fuse into the space until it clicks firmly into place. Close the fuse box cover.

Step 5

Test the new fuse to verify it works once you restart your Kia Spectra.
