This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the XV70 eighth generation (2018, 2019 and probably also the 2020, 2021 & 2022 model years) Toyota Camry sedan in checking or changing a blown electrical fuse in either the engine bay or the interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Toyota, Scion and Lexus vehicles such as the Avalon, Corolla, Prius, Yaris, Mirai, 86, Sienna, RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner, C-HR, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra, Venza, Hilux, RX 350, IS 250, IS 350, CT 200H, GS 450h, GX 470, LX 470, UX 200, NX 300 and UX 250h may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The Camry is equipped with the relatively newer style of "low profile" mini blade electrical fuses which can be purchased at any auto parts store, at Walmart or online at Amazon.

No tools are needed to access and replace any of the fuses or relays.


Pull Off Fuse Box Cover

Engine Bay Fuse Block
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right (driver) side of the engine bay.

The black plastic fuse box is located just behind the driver side headlight assembly and to the right of the engine air filter box and the 12V automotive battery.

Gently push in the tab on the front of the fuse box cover to release the retaining clip.

Then push in the tab on the back side of the cover to release the second retaining clip.

Carefully pull the cover straight off the fuse box.

Turn over the cover to view the fuse location diagram.

There is also another fuse location diagram in your owner's manual.

White Fuse Puller Tool
Remove Plastic Fuse Puller
Driver Side Dashboard
There should be a white plastic fuse puller tool attached to the right rear corner of the fuse block.

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

Pull the tool straight out of its socket.

The interior passenger compartment electrical panel is located under the driver side of the dashboard.

Interior Fuse Panel
Black Plastic Cover
Pull Forward Release Tab
Look under the dashboard and above the emergency / parking brake lever near where the driver's left knee would reside while driving.

Gently pull forward the release tab on the front edge of the black plastic cover (closest to you and the driver's seat).

Pull Off Cover
Plastic Cover Removed
Fuse Location Diagram
Gently pull the cover off the fuse panel.

There is a fuse location diagram on the outside of the cover.


Place Jaws Over Old Fuse
Pull Out Old Fuse
Hold Up To Light Bulb
Squeeze the end of the fuse puller tool to open the jaws.

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

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

To check the condition of the old fuse, hold it up to a light bulb.

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

If the thin metal bar in the middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the old fuse might still be in working condition.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, the fuse should still be replaced as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Push In New LP Fuse
Replace Fuse Puller Tool
Lower Fuse Box Cover
Push a new low profile mini blade fuse of the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 15A, 20 Amps) straight into the socket.

If you suspect that a faulty relay is your electrical problem, the best way to check it is to simply replace it with a new relay.

You could also test the old relay with a digital multimeter tool.

Replace the fuse puller tool into its socket on the engine bay electrical panel.

Lower the fuse box cover over the panel.

Push To Secure 2 Clips
Fuse Box Cover Secured
Line Up Plastic Cover
Gently push down on the cover to secure the two retaining clips.

Double check that the cover is securely in place.

Line up the black plastic rectangular shaped cover for the interior fuse panel.

Re-Insert Tabs - Rear
Push On Front - Secure
Plastic Cover Replaced
Re-insert the two tabs on the far end of the cover into their slots.

Push up on the close side of the cover to secure the retaining clip.

Make sure the cover is securely in place.

Test the electrical component that were having issues with such as the stereo, power windows, power driver's seat, horn, interior lights, headlights, tail lights, gauges, etc.

If you are still having the same problem, there may be a shorted out wire or you may need to replace the faulty component.

Be sure to record the fuse change in your vehicle's service records.
