1996 Ford F250 Fuse Box Diagram (Power Distribution Box)

The Power Distribution Box houses high current fuses that play a vital role in safeguarding your vehicle’s primary electrical systems against overloads. These fuses establish the connection between the battery and various electrical components within your vehicle.

Identifying these high-current fuses is made easier through a color-coding system. The light green color represents a 30 amp fuse, orange signifies a 40 amp fuse, red indicates a 50 amp fuse, and blue denotes a 60 amp fuse.

This color coding simplifies the process of locating and replacing fuses, ensuring the correct amperage rating is maintained for optimal electrical system functionality.

Ford Guidelines

  • Ford recommends that high-current fuses be replaced by a qualified technician.
  • A blown high current fuse may be replaced but will continue to blow until the cause of the overload condition is corrected.
