How to Install the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch on a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Cruise, you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the Roadmaster Fusemaster Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles. Part number RM76512. Keep in mind, this vehicle requires four fuses to be pulled, which is going to require you to have two of these, if you have an automatic transmission. If you have a manual transmission, you will need to pick up part number RM76511.This is what our switch looks like when it's installed. What this is going to do is this is going to save your battery. So, when your key is in accessory mode, your radio's going to be turned on, which can in turn drain your battery if you're traveling.

What the switch is going to do, is it's going to bypass and turn your radio off when your key is in accessory mode, in turn, saving your battery from being drained while you're traveling. Speaker 2: It's going to be one of five main components in a flat tow set up. The other four are going to be your safety cables, your wiring, your braking system, and your tow bar. Speaker 1: To get our fuse bypass installed, we need to find our fuse panel. Our fuse panel is located right here behind this center panel here.

We're going to pull down and out. Now we're going to look in our owner's manual and determine which fuses need to be pulled. We're going to be pulling F15, which is this one, F27, which is this one. If you have an automatic transmission, you'll be pulling F23, which is going to be this one here. We have a manual, so we don't have one in there.

Then you're going to pull F26, which is this one. You're going to have two red and who black wires that are going to be paired up.Two of them are going to go into one fuse spot. Two are going to go into the other fuse spot. You're going to take those two fuses out and they're going to get installed in here. Because we have such a tight space to work there, we're actually going to take all of this wire loom and our heat shrink at the ends.

We'll just take a utility knife, cut off our heat shrink and we'll be able to pull our wire loom off. This is what it's going to look like when you have your wire loom off. Now we'll go ahead and pull out our 15 amp fuse here, and this 20 amp fuse. On our fuse bypass, we're going to have side one and side two. We're going to have two wires come off side one, two off two. So, we're going to do is one side is going to go onto one fuse holder, and you're going to put that fuse in that spot. The other side is going to go into the spot where you removed the fuse, and then you're going to put the fuse in here.Now, this end right here, we're going to have to pull the wires off to drill our hole in our panel to get this in place. The problem is, we got to have this much space behind our panel in order for our panel to close and in order for this to go on. The only place we have to do that is below our fuse panel here and on top of this. On the back of our panel, these two little spots here they actually go into these two spots here on the ends. In order to get our cut right, because we have to be pretty precise, we don't have a whole lot of room for error, is this top part of this actually rolls down inside of here. If we keep our hole kind of in between the bottom fuse and the second fuse here, as long as the bottom of our hole stays above this line, we should be okay.This is what our switches are going to look like after they're installed. You're going to use a 3/4 inch drill bit to drill your two holes to get these to fit. You may have to open them up just a little bit more. I did. What I used is actually a step bit, not a drill bit. Either way is going to work. But then you're going to have a plastic ring on the back. Once you get it put into the panel, take that plastic ring and you're going to screw it on the back. And then tighten it down. And then you're going to have a white dot on one of your wires. You want to make sure you put that in the same place that it was. In this case on this one, it was on the bottom. We're going to put our wires back in. Now what I'm going to do, is I'm going to take my wires. I'm going to plug them into the one fuse. I'm going to take that fuse that was in that spot in my fuse panel and put it in.I'm going to go ahead and pull this end one out. This is not the easiest, my hands are a little big. It's kind of hard to get my fingers in there. Just like that, and then we'll take our fuse that we pulled out, put it into the holder, and put our cover back on. And do the same thing here will go to this one. And that one was our 20 amp fuse. I'm going to do the same thing here for our 15 amp fuse. Like that.And let's repeat that. Get our fuse . Now, we have to take our wires and get them . Gonna be a little bit hard to see. We have to get our wires tucked down inside of here, so that we can get our panel back on. Next, we're gonna put our key in our ignition. We're gonna turn on to our accessories where everything comes on and we're gonna push our buttons to make sure that it shuts everything off.So, you can see our light here. It shuts that off and then the next one will shut off our whole dash. Now, we'll put our key in our ignition. Turn it to our accessories where our dash comes on and we'll flip our switches and we'll wait a few seconds and it'll start shutting everything off. So, now we know that our white dot is gonna be our drive mode. We're gonna have a couple stickers and we're gonna have a tow mode. We'll take drive mode and put it on the top and your kit's gonna come with two stickers. A sticker for each one. Because they are so close together, I'm just gonna use one and I'm gonna leave the other ones in the vehicle in case these come off and they need to be replaced.And that'll do it for a look at and installation on a Roadmaster Fuse Master fuse bypass switch for towed vehicle. Part number RM76512 on our 2017 Chevrolet Cruise.
