2017 Murano Fuse Box
Pull Back Tab - Release Clip
Release Two Rear Clips
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and probably also the revised 2019 & 2020 model years) Nissan Murano 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 and Infiniti vehicles such as the Rogue, Pathfinder, Armada, Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Leaf, 370Z, GT-R, Frontier, Titan, NV200, Q50, Q70, Q60, QX30, QX50, QX60, QX70 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2017 Murano SV AWD is equipped with the relatively newer style of "low profile" mini blade fuses.

There is a fuse puller tool included on the interior fuse block or you can you use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Lift Out - Turn Over Panel
Smaller Fuse Box
Push In Release Tab
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right rear area of the engine bay on the driver side.

The black plastic electrical boxes are located just to the right of the 12V automotive battery and the engine air filter box.

The large square fuse panel is held in place to the box by four retaining clips.

There are two on the front and two on the rear of the fuse panel.

Gently pull back the tabs to release the retaining clips.

Lift the fuse panel out of the box and carefully turn it over to access the electrical fuses and relays.

There is a smaller triangular shaped fuse box located in front of the larger panel.

Gently push in the release tab on the front of the cover before pulling it straight off the fuse box.

Pull Off Fuse Box Cover
Driver Side Dashboard
Pull Out Access Cover
There is a fuse location diagram inside the owner's manual.

The interior passenger compartment electrical block is located behind an access cover at the bottom left of the dashboard near where the driver's left knee would be while driving.

Insert your fingers into the opening near the top of the access panel and gently pull it straight out.

Interior Fuse Panel
Fuse Location Diagram
Pull Out Old Fuse
There is a fuse location diagram for the interior fuse panel on the back side of the access cover.

The tan colored plastic fuse puller tool is attached to the interior fuse block.

You can also use a pair of needle nose pliers with rubber insulated handles.

Carefully pull the old fuse that you'd like to check or change straight out of the socket.


Old Fuse Removed
Check Old Fuse
Push Fuse Into Socket
To check the condition of the old fuse, hold it up to a light bulb.

If the thin metal strip or "band" in the center of the old fuse appears to be burnt or broken, the old fuse is most likely "blown" and should be replaced with a new low profile mini blade fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 15A, 20A).

If the thin metal bar in the translucent plastic middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse is most likely still good.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, it would be a good idea to still replace the suspected fuse as part of your electrical issue troubleshooting process.

Push a new fuse of the same amperage rating straight into the socket.

If you would like to add a hard wired power source for an automotive accessory such as a Bluetooth adapter, radar detector, auxiliary gauge, dash camera / dashcam or a GPS unit, install an "Add-A-Circuit" Fuse Holder Tap.

If you suspect that a faulty relay is your problem, the easiest way to troubleshoot the problem is to simply replace the relay.

If you have a digital multimeter tool, you can test the old relay.

Replace Fuse Box
Push Down - Secure Clips
Replace Small Cover
Carefully turn over the main electrical panel and lower it down into the fuse box.

Gently push down on the electrical panel until you hear or feel the four retaining clips "click" securely into place.

Push the smaller triangular shaped fuse box back into place.

Re-Insert Access Cover
Pop In Retaining Clips
Access Cover Replaced
Move to the interior of the SUV.

Re-insert the tabs on the bottom edge of the access cover into the opening in the dashboard.

Then gently pop in the retaining clips on the top edge of the access cover.

Test the electrical component that you were having issues with such as the power windows, radio, power driver's seat, gauges, tail lights, horn, interior lights, A/C system, etc.

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