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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Items you will need

  • Fuse puller
  • Same rating fuse
