This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 6th generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Ford Taurus sedan in troubleshooting an electrical problem by checking or changing a blown fuse or relay in either the engine bay or interior passenger compartment panels.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles with similar fuse boxes such as the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Explorer, Edge, Expedition, Flex, MKS, MKZ, MKT, MKX, Navigator, Milan, Grand Marquis, Mariner and Mountaineer may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

Replacement mini blade fuses or relays in a variety of amperage ratings (e.g. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25) can be purchased at retail stores such as Advance Auto Parts, Napa, Pep Boys, Wal-Mart or online at Amazon.

A white plastic fuse puller tool is included on the underside of the interior fuse box cover.

The engine bay fuse box is located on the right side of the engine bay next to the 12V automotive battery.

Press the two release tabs on the rear edge of the fuse box cover (closest to the driver's seat) and pull the cover straight off.

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

The interior fuse panel in the passenger compartment is located underneath the driver's side of the dashboard.

Press the release tab on the cover and pull it straight off the panel. There is a fuse location diagram on the outside of the cover and also another one in the owner's manual.

There is a white plastic fuse puller tool on the underside of the interior fuse panel cover.


Place Tool Over Fuse
Hold Fuse Up To Light
Push In New Fuse
Squeeze together the fuse puller tool and place the jaws over the fuse you'd like to check or replace.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket and hold it up to a light source.

If the metal bar in the middle of the old fuse appears broken or appears "burnt" then the fuse has "blown" and should be replaced with a new one.

If the metal strip inside the fuse appears to be intact, the fuse may still be good.

But since new fuses are so inexpensive, either way it should still be replaced as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Push a new mini blade fuse of the same amperage rating (E.G. 5, 10, 15, 20) straight in to the socket on the block.

Push On Fuse Box Cover
Replace Fuse Puller Tool
Replace Interior Fuse Cover
Push the engine bay fuse box cover back in to place.

Replace the fuse puller tool on the underside of the interior fuse block cover and then push it back in to place.
