2020 Jeep Compass Fuses and Fuse Box | Checking and replacing fuses

The fuses and fuse box in the 2020 Jeep Compass protect the car’s complicated electrical system in a quiet way. They are a key defense against possible problems and make sure that all of the car’s functions work without any problems. In a smartly placed area of the car, the fuse box stores a complicated network of fuses, with each fuse protecting a different set of electrical connections. These fuses are very important safety devices because they quickly stop the flow of electricity when there are overloads or electrical problems, protecting important parts. The fuse box is usually placed in an easy-to-reach place in the Jeep Compass, like under the dashboard or in the engine compartment. This makes maintenance and troubleshooting much easier. Understanding all of the 2020 Jeep Compass’s fuses and how they work is essential for keeping the car’s electrical system in good shape and making sure the driving experience is safe and smooth.

FUSES

WARNING!

  • When replacing a blown fuse, always use an appropriate replacement fuse with the same amp rating as the original fuse. Never replace a fuse with another fuse of higher amp rating. Never replace a blown fuse with metal wires or any other material. Do not place a fuse inside a circuit breaker cavity or vice versa. Failure to use proper fuses may result in serious personal injury, fire and/or property damage.
  • Before replacing a fuse, make sure that the ignition is off and that all the other services are switched off and/or disengaged.
  • If the replaced fuse blows again, contact an authorized dealer.
  • If a general protection fuse for safety systems (air bag system, braking system), power unit systems (engine system, transmission system) or steering system blows, contact an authorized dealer.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The fuses protect electrical systems against excessive current.
When a device does not work, you must check the fuse element inside the blade fuse for a break/melt.
Also, please be aware that when using power outlets for extended periods of time with the engine off may result in vehicle battery discharge.
