Nothing works in a car these days without electricity. So that there is no danger here, fuses and a (or more) corresponding fuse box in a car ensure safety. The extent to which fuses are needed and, accordingly, the space in your fuse box varies depending on the car and equipment. But just because of changes to the electrical system, an individual fuse box may be necessary that, for example, offers more space. If you install components like additional lights, electric running boards, a winch and may make various changes to the hifi the additional components must of course be secured accordingly. In the event of a defect, this prevents other components from being affected and also one vehicle fire maybe you can prevent it.
Basically, the voltage in a car is between 5A and 30 A. Of course, exceptions confirm the rule, but fuses of this power are the usual ones. Depending on the fuse box, there may be different fuses and systems. For example, there can be solid-body fuses, but also wire-in-air fuses. Depending on the type of fuse, there are different aspects for the respective application. For example, the robustness of the fuses. But also in terms of avoiding fault currents etc. An individual / additional fuse box has various equipment elements to offer. Like lighting, for example, there are waterproof versions, but open fuse boxes are not uncommon. What different models there are, you should look at before buying and what differences there are in the individual fuse box.
Installation location for an individual fuse box
If you want to replace a fuse box with a larger one, it is advisable to remove the existing fuse box. At least in older vehicles with relatively little electronics, this is easily possible. In the case of a new car, especially in the direction of the middle upper class or upper class, replacing the fuse box is extremely complex. If you have removed the old box, you should choose the same installation location if possible. This has the great advantage that you don't have to make any or only a few changes to the cabling here. If you chose a different installation location, you would have to make complex extensions regarding the cabling. Basically, before working on the fuse box, you should of course always do that Battery disconnect. The voltages in the vehicle electrics of the car and the associated dangers should not be underestimated. Only after disconnecting the battery can you remove the old fuse box and replace it with the new one. When connecting the fuse box, you can use the instructions supplied, the wiring diagram of the vehicle and possibly also reports in forums or on YouTube & Co. as a guide. If the fuses are identical to the old fuse box, no changes need to be made. So you can simply put the fuses back into the individual fuse box and the component will run. You can also reconnect the battery later.
