How do you replace 80 amp fuse on 98 frontier?
go to your fuse box and take out the fuse if you dont have a tool it might give you hell but make sure you know what your doing do you dont mess it up the insert new fuse

raise hood and then jerk out your pistol ,take a general aim and then calmly empty the clip into that piece of turd. i have one myself and all i do is work on the junky mother…flipper. so when you get started put one in the prick from me.
no you can't
No, this is not monitored.
It is possible to use a smaller fuse in some circuits. However if a device connected to the circuit needs more than 20 amps to start up or to operate, the fuse will open.
Using "Oversized" Fuses is VERY DANGEROUS! Although it is sometimes possible to fit a 40 Amp fuse into the "holder" for a 30 Amp fuse, this practice is VERY DANGEROUS and can… result in SEVERE DAMAGE to the the electrical conductors [wires] in the circuit, and/or to other components of the electrical circuit. Even worse, it could result in such massive overheating of the electrical conductors [wires] that a fire would result, causing serious, expensive damage to an electrical system, and personal injury or death . DO NOT "overfuse" ANY CIRCUIT . See following answer/explanation of the function of fuses and circuit breakers which has been used previously where questioners have inquired about fuses that continuously "blow" every time they have been replaced. Although the entire answer is extremely informative, pay particular attention to the last paragraph. Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly Without being able to "hands on" troubleshoot the circuit served by the repeatedly blowing fuse, no one can identify the specific cause/defect which is causing your problem. Therefore, the following generic answer can be applied to any electrical circuit , whether in a vehicle, or in a building, or whether alternating current [AC] or direct current [DC]. Fuses [and Circuit Breakers] are safety devices designed and installed in electrical circuits TO PROTECT the conductors [wires] and other components from short circuit conditions and/or overload conditions which cause an extremely large flow of electrical current [measured in Amperes], which causes overheating of the conductors [wires] that results in damage to the insulation and the conductors. And in a worst case scenario, the probability of a FIRE which could destroy the vehicle, house, or other structure in which the circuit is located. When a fuse or Circuit Breaker [and replacement fuses, or "tripping" Circuit Breakers] "blow," especially if it happens repeatedly, is an indication of an UNSAFE CONDITION in that circuit, usually a short. The fuse or circuit breaker is doing what it was designed, intended, and installed to do, protect the conductors and components of the circuit which it serves. The proper "fix" is for a qualified technician, who knows what he or she is doing , to troubleshoot the involved circuit, find and identify the defect, and make proper repair [s], BEFORE replacing the fuse again [with the properly sized fuse or before resetting a circuit breaker]. Some ignorant few will suggest installing a larger fuse or breaker to solve the problem, BUT that will only increase the hazard, not correct it. Do not follow "bad" advice by installing a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install an over-sized fuse would almost guarantee damage to the wiring, and possibly an electrical system fire.
NO!!!! The fuse is your safety device. Never replace a smaller fuse with a larger fuse. Another answer People who have done that in the past have burned down their homes.… Changing from a 20 amp to 30 amp fuse puts 50% more current through the wire, overheats the wire and can result in fire. Don't do it. As the above post explains, the fuse is your safety device. To Ad: The above answers are dead on. Remember the fuse protects the wiring from overheating and catching on fire. A 20 amp fuse is used on 12 gage wire and a 30 amp fuse is used on 10 gage wire which is must larger. Never mix them up. To Ad: actually if you people wouldve took some kind of electical class its better to put a bigger fuse.. you just do not need to double the size.. if you got a 20 put a 30 in it it want blow.. if you put a 40 then you will have problems...
It is not recommended. The design of the equipment called for the 2 amp fuse. To up size it to a larger fuse is taking the equipment out of its manufactured specification. Thi…s will void any warranties and could destroy the equipment with five times the normal current before the fuse would disconnect the supply voltage. Be very aware if you start changing fuse sizes and the damage that could result from this action.
It will work but will not protect the circuit as it should. By design, the circuit should have a maximum of 13 amps, but with the larger fuse in place, currents of 14 and 15 a…mps can occur without blowing the fuse, and this flow could damage parts of the circuit. It would be much safer to use a lower value, which would lead to more blowing of the fuse but no damage to the circuit being protected.
Yes you can. It will provide better protection because it will blow quicker than a 20 amp if there is a fault in the circuit. Not advisable. If the normal current is little mo…re than 15 amps,then the fuse will blow. If the actual current is less than 15amps, then it would work.
This is not a good idea to do. Sometimes just that little bit of extra current that the 45 amp fuse will allow to reach the 40 amp load might be enough to destroy the device.
not smart to do it cant carry the load of the circuit it will blow. in emergency maybe but never go with a higher rating
\n. There are a couple of phillips screws on either side of the 80 amp fuse leading to the engine fuse box. :)
The amp will have probably a mains fuse on the power input circuitand other fuses on the dc power supplies to the circuits. Theremight also be fuses on the audio output circui…ts. The fuses will bein conventional holders. You have to find the fuses, take them out and look at them. In agood fuse you can often see the thin wire running through inside,and if the fuse has blow you can see the damaged wire. Then having identified the faulty fuse you can look on the internetfor a replacement of the right voltage and current.
No, the one amp fuse is the recommendation of the manufacturer of the circuit. By replacing it with a fuse five times larger will default the warranty placed on the equipment …by the manufacturer. Where one amp will do no damage to the circuit, five amps could destroy the components that are connected in the circuit.
NO! Using a larger amp fuse defeats the purpose of the fuse to protect the wiring in the circuit. This can cause a fire. Always use the correct amp fuse for that circuit.
No, the circuit is designed to operate with a 2.5 amp fuse in the circuit. By placing a larger fuse than recommended, serious damage could be done to other components that are… in the circuit. A fuse closer to the 2.5 amp value could be used for a temporary measure but must be replaced when the correct size fuse is obtained. The real procedure is to find out what blew the fuse in the first place before replacing the fuse with a new one. Without finding the cause it is a waste of money installing fuses and seeing them blow.
