This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation 2014, 2015, 2016 and the revised 2017 or 2018 model year Nissan Rogue SUV in checking or changing a blown fuse or a faulty relay in either the engine bay or the interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Murano, Altima, Titan, Versa, Sentra, Maxima, Leaf, 370Z, GT-R, Juke, Pathfinder, Armada, Patrol, Skyline, Cube, X-Trail, Xterra, Qashqai, Rogue Sport, NV200, NV400, Teana, Q50, Q70, Q60, QX30, QX50, QX56, QX60, QX70 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2016 Nissan Rogue is equipped with both standard mini blade electrical fuses in the engine bay and low profile fuses in the interior passenger compartment.

The tools needed to access the electrical panels include a 10mm socket, a 1/4" drive ratchet a plastic pry bar tool and/or a flathead screwdriver.

Pry Up Center of Fastener
Remove Plastic Pop Rivets
Pop Rivets Removed
To access the two engine bay electrical boxes, you'll have to remove the air intake assembly.

Start by removing the single bolt at the front of the air intake by turning it counterclockwise with a 10mm socket and a 1/4" drive ratchet.

Set the bolt aside in a safe place.

The front edge of the air intake assembly is held in place by two plastic pop rivets.

Gently pry up the center part of each fastener before pulling them out. You can either use a flathead screwdriver or a plastic automotive pop rivet removal tool.

Set the two pop rivets aside in a safe place.

Squeeze To Release Clips
Pull Off Air Intake Assembly
Gently Release Plastic Clip
Locate the two retaining clips on the center of the air intake tube.

Firmly pinch together the two tabs on the top of the air intake tube to release the retaining clips.

Pull the air intake out of the engine bay and set it aside.

Gently push in the tabs on the side of the fuse box covers to release the retaining clips.
Pull Off Fuse Box Cover
Gently Pull Back Clip
Remove Fuse Box Cover
Pull off the fuse box cover and set it aside in a safe place.

Repeat the process for the smaller fuse box cover.

There is a fuse location diagram on the underside of the fuse box cover and also another one in your owner's manual.

Upside Down Fuse Panel
Pull Back To Release Clip
Gently pull back the clips on the outer edge of the upside down fuse block to release it.

Lift the fuse block out of the bottom half of the box and turn it over to access the fuses and relays.

Turn Over Fuse Block
Driver Side Dashboard
Small Notch Near Bottom
There is a white plastic fuse puller tool attached to the interior passenger compartment electrical panel.

If the tool is missing, you can also use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Move to the driver side of the dashboard.

Locate the small notch near the bottom of the side panel.

Insert Plastic Pry Bar Tool
Pull Off Access Panel
Access Cover Removed
Use the plastic pry bar tool to gently remove the side panel on the dashboard to access the interior electrical block.

There is a fuse location diagram on the back side of the plastic panel.


Interior Fuse Panel
White Plastic Fuse Puller Tool
Place Tool Over Fuse
The white plastic fuse puller tool is attached to the top middle area of the interior fuse block.

Place the tool over the fuse that you'd like to check or change.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Old Fuse Removed
Hold Up To Light Bulb
Push In New Fuse
To check the old fuse, hold it up to a light bulb.

If the thin metal bar or "band" in the translucent plastic center of the old fuse appears to be broken or burnt, it is most likely "blown" and should be replaced with a new fuse.

This 2016 Nissan Rogue was equipped with standard mini blade electrical fuses in the engine bay and the relatively newer style "low profile" mini blade fuses in the interior passenger compartment panel.

Please check the fuses in your Rogue before purchasing new ones.

If the thin metal strip in the translucent plastic middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, it is probably still good.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, I still recommend that you replace it as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 20A, etc) straight in to the socket.

Replace Fuse Puller Tool
Line Up Dashboard Panel

Flip over the primary engine bay fuse panel and push it back in the lower part of the box.

Push the two pop rivets back in to place at the front edge of the air intake assembly.

Re-insert the 10mm bolt and tighten it in the clockwise direction until it is snug.

Test the electrical component that wasn't working properly such as the radio, wipers, horn, A/C, power windows, headlights, tail lights, 12V power outlet, power door locks, etc.

If you are still having the same problem, there may be a shorted wire somewhere or the electrical component itself needs to be replaced.
