Q: Where Is the Anti-Theft Fuse Typically Located?
A: The anti-theft or car alarm fuse is usually found in the fuse box on the driver’s side. It should be directly in front of your left knee covered by a plastic panel.
Sudden impact or motions inside the vehicle can trigger the anti-theft alarm. Usually, the alarm has a security light that stays on even when the engine is off. The light should go off once the engine starts.
Depending on the vehicle’s specifications, the anti-theft alarm can also prevent the engine from starting. It can also lock you out of your vehicle under certain conditions.
Tips on How to Access the Anti-Theft Fuse
The exact location of the anti-theft fuse should be in your owner’s manual. Once you locate the right fuse box, there should be markings on each of the fuses or color-coded plastic covers. These covers usually have numbers on them that correspond to a specific circuit.
If you’re planning to disable the alarm, you’ll need a fuse puller or pliers to disconnect the fuse.
