Let’s be clear, most modern vehicles come with 2 fuse boxes. There is one in the engine compartment and one down at your feet to the left of the pedals. Generally, the latter one is the one most E450 owners will be working with when they want to make adjustments to their electrical system
For the 2000 E450 model, you will find the fuse box diagram under the roadside emergencies section. The diagram is on page 132 followed by a table with all the numbered fuses identified for easier replacement. There are 44 fuses in the interior fuse box.
To see these diagrams and tables, just continue to read our article. It provides as many diagrams as possible so that you can make the right repairs or upgrades to your electrical system. The exterior fuse box may only have about 24 fuses to worry about.
If you want to see the manual for your specific model, you can click here. This is Ford’s web page for manuals for the E450 and other E-series trucks. The problem with that website option is that it only has the most recent owners' manuals available.
The list goes from 2014 to 2024 and the diagrams are going to be in different places in the manual. The one for the 2014 fuse box is on page 191 and we will post the diagram soon.
1. 1995 to 2014 fuse box diagram
This is the interior fuse box diagram. According to one source this diagram remained the same from 1995 to 2014. You can view it at this link and read the rest of the table. The engine compartment diagram follows:
It is found at the same link just below the tables for the above diagram .
The 2014 is slightly different when you look at the manual. Here is the interior fuse box diagram and then the engine compartment’s diagram for this model year:
Both can be found at this link along with their tables identifying what each fuse services.
3. 2021 to 2023
The engine compartment’s fuse panel is the first diagram followed by the passenger fuse panel:
You can read the tables at this link. For the model years 2015 to 2020, you can view both the diagrams and the tables at this link. It looks like Ford did not do much to change the designs until those fuse boxes needed to be changed.
The location for every fuse box will be similar for all make and models of cars and trucks. Since there are a limited number of options available you will find that most car and truck makers place their fuse boxes in the same location.
There are usually 2 fuse boxes in modern cars and trucks and the Ford E450 is no exception to this rule. It has been this way since about 1995. The first location will be under the hood usually near the alternator and the battery.
That location can be on either the driver’s or passenger's sides of the vehicle depending on where Ford placed the battery and alternator. We did confirm for 1997 to 2008 that Ford did not change the design of the fuse box and it seems that from 2008 to 2014 also remains the same.
The passenger or interior fuse box is located under the dash, to the left of the brake or clutch pedals. It is usually placed on the firewall where your foot generally sits and rests until you need to shift or brake.
There might be slight differences between the 2015 to 2017 designs but the 2018 to 2020 designs remain the same.
One reason we did not put more designs up for you to look at is that different websites claim different things. One was as described in the previous section but another website claims that the 2016 to 2019 fuse box designs were the same for the E450 and other E series trucks.
However, what does not change no matter the model year, is the general location of these fuse boxes. The more specific description for the passenger fuse box location is - mounted onto the lower left cowl panel.
Don’t worry, that is the same location as we described in the last section. It is always to the left of the pedals and the exact location may differ only slightly from other makes and models of trucks.
Fuses are generic and normally are not brand specific. You can buy the right fuses for this truck just about anywhere fuses are sold. They all perform the same duty so you do not have to worry about where you buy them.
The key to buying fuses is to make sure you replace the old fuse with the exact same amperage. You may be able to go a little larger at times, but you can never go smaller.
For example if the fuse box diagram and table call for a 10-amp fuse, then you need to replace it with a 10-amp fuse. If it calls for a 115-amp fuse, then a 15-amp should go in its place.
Most fuses are easy to remove and replace. Just provide steady gentle pressure when pulling out and when pushing the fuse back in place. There is no need to use a lot of force.
Fuse box designs do not change that much. When they change it is usually because the auto or truck maker has added new components to their electrical designs and more fuses are needed.
When you look at the diagrams you will see that they are generally the same and have roughly the same number of fuses. To find them just open your hood and you should see it right away.
The passenger fuse box will take a screwdriver to remove the panel to get access to it.
