I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel and have inadvertently blown the 20-amp fuse in the accessory socket. However, no dealer in the UK has any in stock and they are on back order. They are also fitted to Kia vehicles, but these are also out of stock. The only place I seem to be able to find one is the US or Australia, which will incur heavy postage charges. The fuse is a Micro2 ATR 20 amp. Any idea where I can find one? Robert Olorenshaw
The Micro2 fuse is the latest and smallest fuse developed to save space in the fusebox. It measures 9.1 x 3.8 x 15.3mm, which is even smaller than the mini-fuse that has been in common use for some time and measures 10.9 x 3.6 x 16.3mm.
As you say, the fuses are available from the US, but I was surprised by the postage costs of around £20 being asked for such a small part. I was also dismayed to discover that main dealers do not yet appear to stock this fuse.
I did, however, manage to find a UK supplier that has stock. The fuse including delivery is less than £3.50, which is far better value than buying from abroad. The website can be found at this link http://bit.ly/1s7qldc. I have not used this site myself and so this is only a suggestion, not a recommendation.
