Im in need of some help with relocating the fuse box. I tried searching for how-tos and some other various threads, but nothing really concrete came up. How much wiring is attached to the fusebox? Where can I relocate this since I have an ATX?


Thanks for the info!

Why do you want to relocate it? Just move the battery to the trunk and drop the fuse box down... that should provide a lot of space in that area. (unless you have other plans :evil: )

There are probably close to 100 wires going into the fuse box. If you just lift it up you can see. They go right into the bottom. My guess is that relocating this without some sort of extension wiring harness would be a wiring nightmare. Can you say "cut, extend, splice" 100 times!!!

If you're trying to get more power just run a battery wire off.. Im curious why you want to move your fuse box???

Im kinda curious as to how long the wires are? Some folks have moved the fuse box underneath the battery, but I really dont want to , if something happens and I need to check the fuses I really dont want it underneath the bracket. I just need to place something in its place, and honestly its getting cluttered over in that area of my engine bay....

there is no magical solution to this problem. you have two choices:

a) relocate the fuse box under the battery. difficult to do on an ATX due to clearance issues, and difficult to troubleshoot if something does go wrong

b) do the right thing, and relocate your battery to the trunk, and then you can move your fusebox to the location where you battery used to be


I still don't understand why everyone doesn't relocate there battery to the trunk :confused:, it makes everything so much easier to service things under the hood and it helps create a much better weight distribution (50:50 is deal, front wheel drive cars are too heavy up front...)
