2002 Fuse Box Installation Manual

Basic instructions:

  1. Disconnect positive terminal from the battery.
  2. Unplug old fuse box from under hood.
  3. Plug new fuse box in.
  4. Reconnect positive battery terminal.
Detailed instructions:
  1. Verify all electrics work (or not).
  2. Disconnect positive terminal from the battery. IMPORTANT!
  3. Unscrew the retaining screw for the old fuse box.
  4. Remove fuse box from the fender.
  5. Install the additional ground wire onto the new fuse box.
  6. If you have an early car with individually housed wires, move wires one by one to plug all the wires into the new fuse box in the same location they came from on the old fuse box. Be sure to take lots of photos to make sure you know where the wires go.
  7. If you have a late car with multiple wires in a few housings, trim the plug housing furthest away from the mount screw so it'll clear the ground wire. You need to remove one unused wire position, pictures of this are below.
  8. Put new fuse box into the fender, reinstall the retaining screw.
  9. Install the ring terminal of the extra ground wire on a convenient ground point - it should be able to reach the ground on the fender.
  10. Reconnect the positive terminal to the battery.
  11. Check that some LEDs light up, if not, flip the switch between fuses 9 and 10. If the LEDs still don't light up, there's an issue with the ground line.
  12. Start the car and test that all electrics work.
