How to Replace the Fuses in a Pontiac Grand Am

by Contributor

Whether you have the last Pontiac Grand Am version from 2005 or an older version, you can replace a blown fuse on your own in less than 30 minutes. This process is the same no matter the year with a possible difference in fuse location.

Turn your car off in order to work with fuses. Find the fuse box to the left side of the instrument panel on the driver's side.

Remove the cover of the fuse panel to access the fuses. Review the inside of the cover to read what fuses are located in each slot. For instance, a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am has the turn signal fuse in the slot labeled TURN.

Use a fuse puller or your fingers and remove the fuse. Look at the wire inside and see whether it's melted or broken, an indication the fuse is bad.

Click a new fuse of the same rating into the open slot. Referencing Step 2's example, the 1998 Pontiac Grand Am uses a 10-amp fuse.

Secure the fuse box panel. Verify the new fuse is working once you restart Grand Am.

Tip

  • There is an additional fuse block in the engine compartment near the battery on the driver's side. Fuses with higher currents such as those for the battery or anti-lock brake system are located in this fuse block.
