Friggin' Fuse Box...

The other day I was playing around with some of my instrument cluster settings on my '06 GT. Well, suddenly the lights went out on both them and my radio. It's strange... they work when the headlights and parking lights are off, but as soon as I turn on the parking lights they both go out.

So... I believe I have blown a fuse. Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get in the goddamn fuse box behind the passenger side kick panel. The only way I see that it might be done would be to remove the entire freakin' kick panel, which I really don't wanna do.

So does anybody know any tricks before I just take this thing to the stealership?

BTW, this will be the last Ford I ever buy. The stupidity of their engineers these days is just too much.

Ok, what is the huge deal? Isn't it just a push pin you have to remove to get to the interior fuse box?

Also, if it were a fuse then there would never be electrical supply to any of the lights so long as the fuse if blown. I'm pretty sure that your display settings are just changed to be totally off. You know how you can change the "My color" settings. Well, they definitely are changed. Out of the 125 different RBG (Red/Blue/Green) values you have chosen the dimmest possible setting.

No. You pop off a little plastic cover on the kick panel. Then there's another cover for the actual fuse box. It has two plastic tabs on each side that have to be pushed in so you can pull the cover off. The one on the right is impossible to get to because it sits back behind the kick panel. The hole isn't big enough to get to it.

Re: Friggin' Fuse Box...

Finally got to it. Had to pop off the passenger door scuff plate and kick panel. At least now they have some nice, sturdy metal clips holding those pieces in instead of the old, easily broken plastic ones. That's the main thing I was worried about.

Still, it makes me wonder what they were smoking at Ford when they put an access panel on the kick panel for the sole purpose of access to the fuse box... yet they didn't make it big enough to get the damn cover off.

Re: Friggin' Fuse Box...

I've found a lot of newer cars have split p their fuse boxes, half under the drivers column or kick panel and the other half in the other kick panel or side of the dash. Hell even GM (think Saturn) has some fuses on the passenger side center console.
