How to Replace the Mega-Fuse in a Ford Taurus

by Alibaster Smith

The mega-fuse under the hood of your Ford Taurus is responsible for controlling the electrical current for major electrical components, like your alternator. When this fuse is blown, you must order a new fuse from Ford (or a Ford dealership). When you order the fuse, provide the model year of your Taurus in order to confirm that you have the correct amperage fuse.

1

Open the hood and locate the fuse box on the passenger's-side fender.

2

Open the fuse panel cover by pulling up on it. There are two small release tabs that you may have to pry up, but the cover should come off easily.

3

Remove the two screws that hold the mega-fuse in place.

4

Pull the fuse off the fuse panel.

5

Install the new fuse. Installation is the reverse of removal.
