Fuse location for parking lights in 2012 ES

Mon Sep 10, 2018 1:20 pm

I've "searched" the forum and could not find this topic. Owners manual does not appear to show location of fuse for parking lights.
I seem to recall a post many years ago about the difficulty of accessing the bulbs so wanted to confirm the status of the fuse(s) first.
Both right and left lights are not functioning.
Thanks

Hi Lithim,

If you are sitting in the driver's seat, the fuse box you need to access is
under the dash, just forward of your left knee.
Press the tab and pull the cover.
There's a fuse puller clipped inside the cover.

There's one fuse for both the left and right bulbs.

The fuses are color-coded, and also have an amp number on them.
Replace with the same color/amp number.

I'm pretty sure the 2012 and 2014 are pretty similar.
The 2014 manual with pictures can be downloaded from here:

Thanks and good health, Weogo

Hi Steve,

I got your message.
I'm sure I saw the parking light fuse listed somewhere, but cannot find it!

The fuse information has the following note:
"The table above shows the main equipment corresponding to each fuse."
This makes me think that the parking lights may be doubled up with something else.

One way to ferret this out would be to try the listed device, for instance #1, tail light (left), and see if that light works.
If it does, you know that fuse is good.

Also, there are some locations that don't have anything listed,
for instance with the cabin fuse box, locations 3, 6 and 27 don't have anything noted.
If there's a fuse in this location, it may be the parking lights.
For the fuse box under the hood, only #1 doesn't have anything listed.

Another possibility is occasionally equipment will have a wire running
directly from the battery positive post connector, with an in-line fuse.

Please post back if you find the parking light fuse.

I may mess with this, but on a warmer day.

Thanks and good health, Weogo
