  • Custom
  • Engine Compartment
  • CURT
  • Mini Fuse

Use this fuse-disconnect system to prep your vehicle to be towed. Simply relocate your car's fuses with this bypass and flip the integrated switch. To drive your car, just flip the switch back on. No need to remove or replace your fuses.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's fuses so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing mini-fuses every time you tow
    • Stores fuses so that you won't lose them
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove mini-fuses from car's fuse box and install bypass in their place
    • Put fuses into fuse holders
    • Mount bypass switch near fuse box
  • Maintains functionality of mini-fuses when switched on
    • Flip switch to "on" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides mini-fuses when switched off
    • Flip switch to "off" position and you're good to tow
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: Consult vehicle's owner's manual to determine which fuses to pull. Do not install a fuse in the Curt Fuse ByPass that has more than a 20-amp rating.


Some automobiles can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse before towing, there's a good chance that your car's battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination.


With this bypass, once the initial installation is complete, you won't have to remove or replace your fuses again. Just pull the fuses indicated in your car's owner's manual and replace them with the bypass. After you install the bypass, insert the removed fuses into the holder of the bypass system. With the fuses installed in this manner, they will still be able to function as needed. Mount the included switch near the fuse box and you're set.


Whenever you need to drive your car, just make sure the switch is flipped into the "on" position. When on, the fuses will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the bypass to "off." When off, the fuses will be rendered inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.

Video Transcript for Curt Towed Vehicle Fuse Bypass Switch Review

Hey everybody, Ryan, here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be checking out the Curt double fuse bypass switch. So when it comes to flat towing your vehicle down the road, there's already a lot of things to kind of worry about. You have your five main components to deal with, your base plate, your tow bar, safety cables, your wiring and your braking system, and honestly, that's enough to really have to worry about there, and any additional things you need to do, chances are pretty good there's a part available to help simplify that or make it more streamlined. And one of the things, or a good example of one of those things, is the fuse bypass switch. So with a lot of vehicles, the manufacturer suggests that you remove a couple of fuses whenever you're flat towing, that way, certain components inside your vehicle don't have power, and you're not gonna have to worry about any issues as far as maybe coming out of flat tow mode or your battery getting drained and things like that.

So one of the things you can do is kind of go old fashioned, actually find those fuses that they want you to pull out and manually pull them out, and then, whenever you're done flat towing, remember to put those fuses back into place, and honestly, at first, if I was new to flat towing, I would think, "Oh, I can do that. I'll get away with that," but honestly, that would probably get old pretty quick. You know, the fuses nowadays are tiny, easily misplaced element, or you're trying to find a new fuse to pop in there and everything else, so I could see that getting old and I would want something to streamline that, and with the switch, you're not gonna have to worry about that. All you're simply gonna have to do is flip that switch, it'll cut power to those fuses, and then whenever you're ready to unhook and drive your car around, you put it back to that on position, and you're good to go. I do wanna mention, the fuse bypass switch is designed to work with fuses that have a rating of 20 amps or under, so, that holds true for each fuse holder.

So you could have a 20 amp fuse in one holder, 20 amp fuse in the other holder, and as long as it doesn't exceed 20 amps, we're in pretty good shape. To be honest, I've yet to run into a fuse that needs to be pulled, of this type, rated higher than 20 amps. That's not to say that they're not out there, but just from my experience, I've yet to find one, so chances are pretty good you'll be covered. And the fuse holder itself is designed to work with these type of fuses right here. So the ATM mini fuse, I believe is what they're called, so I'm sure a lot of people are relatively familiar with these.

They've been around for a while, and a lot of the late model cars use this type of design. So this is what your switch is gonna look like. And like I said, whenever you're ready to cut that power, you can just turn it off and turn it back on whenever you're ready to drive around. Now, usually the switch is gonna be mounted in a place somewhere like this. It's really just gonna be dependent on where your fuse block or box is located in your particular vehicle.

You don't get a ton of length of wire, maybe a foot or so. So, you're kind of limited on where you can go with this unless you wanna extend all those wires and everything else, but I mean, the option's really yours, if that's something you wanna do. I kind of usually like it in an area like this anyway, that way, it's out of sight and you're not gonna be bumping into it with your knee or anything like that. Now, since this is a multi fuse, so it has two fuse slots. You would use this if your vehicle requires you to pull two of those fuses, like our Buick does here today. That way you can control both those fuses with one switch and you don't have to mount up two separate switches and have to deal with two of them. With that said, if your vehicle only requires you to pull one fuse, they also make fuse bypass switches, essentially the same as this, just designed for those vehicles that require you to pull one fuse, so if that's your situation, that's always an option for you as well. So depending on your vehicle, you know what, this has got a disconnect, it really just varies to what your manufacturer suggests what fuse you pull. In our case, in our Buick here, notice just a quick few things, like our dome lights, for example. So right now we have the switch in the on position, just like we would have it if you we're just cruising around town, but if you're ready to flat tow, I'll flip it to the off position, you see it cuts power to those lights, and in our case, it's controlling the body control module, so other aspects aren't gonna have power as well. So, for example, if I try to unlock our doors, see, we're not gonna have any power there at all, and even the same thing with our horn, I push that down, we have no power, but that's exactly what we want whenever we're flat towing, and it makes things really easy. Like I said, once we're done, we turn that switch back to the on position and we regain all of those features. So compared to some of the other fuse bypass switches available, they're all pretty much about the same. I really don't favor one over the other. I will say, the Roadmaster switch does come with some stickers that are pretty nice. They say "tow" and the other one says "drive", and so you can kind of stick those on above and below your switch, just to kind of have a reference on, hey, this is on or in tow mode, or in drive mode. Not really a huge deal breaker there. I mean, it's pretty obvious to know if your components aren't working, it's in tow mode, and if they are, it's in drive, but a nice thing to just kind of look at and process in your head, "Okay, this the position it's in and this is what's gonna happen," but not really a huge deal, just something I thought it was worth mentioning. So when it comes down to it, is this something that you absolutely have to have No, it's not, but it does make things a lot easier. If your car requires you to pull out a couple of fuses, this just really simplifies it and kind of eliminates that little bit of room for error, if you forget to pull them or forget to put them back in or pull the wrong fuses, things like that. So you really can't mess up flipping a switch. As long as you remember it's there, you'll be in good shape, and that's what it seems like. A lot of people that flat tow, you do a lot of them here at etrailer, and one of the things that is really important to a lot of people is having a setup that's easy to manage and not a lot of steps and things like that, and I definitely understand that. You don't wanna be spending a bunch of time trying to kind of jump through hoops to get your car towed behind your motor home. So this is one of them things where it's just one less thing you're not gonna have to worry about. You flip the switch and you're good to go, but with that said, that will finish up our look at of the Curt double fuse bypass switch..

These are a good alternative to the Roadmaster bypass switches and also cost less. I ended up pulling the wiring out of the plastic conduit. The area where this is used doesn't need it and doing that made it much easier to work with. I made my own labels for Drive and Tow positions. Two of these were worked great at bypassing the four fuses that had to be pulled for flat towing a 2019 Chevrolet Sonic. I used some of my wife's fingernail polish to indicate the drive position, "still need to touch that up a bit". See photo.

Review from a similar Fuse Bypass Switch in Tow Bar Wiring


Leads did not fit into the fuse holder. Could not use.


Comments
These are designed to fit micro fuses and are not going to slip in easy, you will need to give them a little push just make sure that you are pushing straight in and not at an angle because the tips could snap.
