Three fuse boxes are located under the maintenance panel, located in the front trunk.
If Model S is equipped with the cold weather option, an additional fuse box (4) is located under the driver’s side trim panel.
To remove a fuse box cover, press the plastic tabs on either side.
Identify the fuse protecting the affected circuit. Refer to the label on the inside of the fuse box cover or the fuse tables provided in this section.
Pull the fuse to remove it. A break in the wire inside the fuse indicates that the fuse has blown.
Note: Do not replace fuses in fuse boxes 1 and 4, and do not remove or replace any relays. If one of these fails, contact Tesla.
Note: Access to fuse box 1 requires removal of components that must be performed by a Tesla service technician. The following fuse list is provided only to assist you in determining if a fuse in this box needs to be replaced. Contact Tesla Service if one of these fuses needs to be replaced.
