I got that 140a fuse link at autozone. You'll find it at just about any auto store. Replacing that fuse by removing the entire fuse block took me about 30min.
why did it take you 30 min? it took me like 30 seconds.

Mine blew about 2 months ago. I couldnt find another 140 amp at any auto store so I pulled 1 off a maxima in a junkyard and pocketed it . Most junkyards wont charge you for fuses anyway

why don't you guys buy it from a dealership if you can't find it anywhere else and are concerned about 120A vs 140A. It was like $11 when I bought mine a few years ago....

i just blew that one on my car the other day... it was a 120 though. and i only paid like 5 somethin for it... autozone... took like 20 minutes to figure out that was my problem, take it off, go get it, and throw it back in... super easy job... those clips on the cover can be a pain though...

jesus CHRIST. after a 2 day long wild goose chase i finally talked to a parts manager who knew what he was doing and he ordered me the fuse from a dealer in north jersey. if you live in new jersey DO NOT blow this fuse.

I know you're frustrated because you're car is down, but you are being a little ungrateful to people who can help you. I've never had to replace mine and I'm at school so I'm not sure if the following is the correct type, but it is a representation of what you can find in 5 short minutes of internet searching.

This is a picture from Amazon.
This is the same part # sold at Oreilly's for 3.99.
I hope it helps to at least steer you in the right direction. Good luck.

nelledge, thats not the right fuse anyways... and yeah, i guess if you were dead set on the 140a you may not have been that lucky but my autozone had both the 120's and 140's for around $5... i saw the 140 first but the bad one i pulled out so that i could reference the terminals was just a 120 so thats what i went with... sorry your having such a hard time...

Tip: Any time you're at a junk yard, pocket a few of these and put them in your glove box. Never know when you're gonna need them.

nissan altima 100 amp

I know that this forum is for Nissan maxima, but I cannot find anything on the Altima forum, (my daughter has an Altima, I have an maxima) I just wanted to know how can I remove a broken 100 amp fuse from the fuse box near the battery, do I have to take it apart if so it clips on the fuse box any help would be greatly appreciated, also to answer the above question I actually went to Nissan and had them order a fuse for my daughter car since I couldn't find any at the auto stores and it was about 4 to 5 bucks for the fuse so if you cant find any in the auto store just go to Nissan and see if they have any in stock and if they don't just have them order it.
