I can get to it and I am a big old man. there is a plastic cover that snaps off.
door open and kneeling should be visible - would a legend of fuses help?
Gotta ask what you looking for?

I see a 1 wire Oil Pressure sensor (2wire connector uses only 1) at oil filter.

Anyway I am in 04 OEM manual for something else If I can help let me know.... it will be open for this morning.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

just pull on the plastic cover and it comes right off. inside of the plastic cover tells you which fuse is for what. have to kneel down and bring a flash light, but its not inaccessible.

That is true, the cover does have a diagram showing the layout...

But Iím a short Chinese guy with small fingers... I still almost have to lay on the floorboard to do anything with it... heaven forbid the flasher relay!!! That was a nightmare I donít wish to have to do that again! :lol:!!

Whenever possible I call my son, Cameron... heís taller than me, but skinny... heís almost 21, so he thinks everything is easy... I get him to pull the fuses for me...

One wire is what 04 oil sensor wiring has.

what kind of cars are you guys talking about??? mine is a jeep,wj,04,special edition,white/blk leather!! THERE IS NO PLASTIC PANEL THAT COMES OFF!!! a LARGE KNEE BOLSTER FROM THE DOOR TO THE CENTER,wont budge,one screw on upper left. i thought 2 bolts might be involved ,wrong but i tried all tools i have, none fit! either small or big from 5/16 to 10 mm!! none fit!!
if i tug on it ,it feels like it will break first,dont know whats behind it
if i do have a blown fuse ill never know.
my worst day with jeeps...i give up...

The flasher relay was my first job on my Jeep. And yes that thing is jammed in there! Took about an hour. Was so hyped when it was completed.

What other common issues are dealt with the fuses near the flasher? Even though the other fuses seem self explanatory. Do they do anything other then what the title is?
