Stuff in this video:

My radar detector failed to turn on a few days ago. After checking all the connections I realized the 12 volt power cable’s inline fuse was blown. Replacing the fuse is easy. The hardest part is reading the fuse type from the small cap of the blown fuse.

I bought a Fast-Blow Glass Fuses Assortment Kit ( ) which had the fuse i needed to replace. A kit like this will last me 5 years or more as i have many 12 volt devices and accessories in my car or home appliances with these fuse in the appliance. They are common in 30 mm and 20 mm length.

Replacement is very easy, Simply remove the power cable, unscrew the top cap. Read the type and size of the fuse. Replace with exactly the same glass fuse. Put back together. Test. Recycle to blown fuse according to local disposal regulations.

Overall knowing how to repair and replace fuses is very useful and can save you from buying a new appliance. I normally get a blown fuse from an appliance every 2- 3 years, so having a fuse kit is very convenient if you are a home owner or car owner.
