The Buick Park Avenue relies on the electrical system to keep the car at it's optimum comfort levels. All the electrical components in the car are wired to a fuse for component protection in case of a power surge. In case of a surge the fuse will burn out and isolate the component from the electrical system. When diagnosing a blown fuse you will want to find out why the fuse got blown in the first place. This usually indicates an exposed wire touching metal or a positive and negative wire touching.

Tools Used[edit]
