Where's the fuze box on a 1963 thunderbird


Asked by Aug 01, 2014 at 12:33 PM about the 1963 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1963 thunderbird appears to have the fuze box on the right side
passenger side next to door HOWEVER the online manual suggests
it has a box next to the driver's footwell inside the car
I can only find the box near the door.
PROBLEM  are there any more fuzes in the system?

I only know of the one on the right hand inside door. Is there a panel for one (something) on the left hand side? If so, just open it and see what is behind it.

Thanks oldtimer37 found the fuse box , I had a battery parasitic leak 3.6 amps . removed fuses one at a time found 2 fuses that did away with the parasitic leak. one is for the radio the othet the cigar holder. One question. When these fuses are permanently removed, as far as you know, is THAT circuit safe? Neil


Yes. Once you pull a fuse, you break the hot side circuit. I am not sure what else besides the radio and cigar lighter work on those fuses so you may find some other things that don't work when you go to use them. Now, all you need to do is trouble shoot why those two were hot. Good luck. 3.6 amp is a lot for a car drain. It would wipe out your batter over night. It sounds like you may have a bare wire touching somewhere in the dash. I would appreciate a "mark helpful" if you feel it was. thanks
