Note: Consult vehicle's owner's manual to determine which fuse to pull. Do not install a fuse in the Blue Ox 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 the Blue Ox Fuse ByPass, once the initial installation is complete, you won't have to remove or replace your fuse again. Just pull the fuse indicated in your car's owner's manual and replace it with the bypass. After you install the Fuse ByPass, insert the removed fuse into the holder of the bypass system. With the fuse installed in this manner, it 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 fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the Fuse ByPass to "off." When off, the fuse will be rendered inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring - Bypasses Vehicle Wiring - BX88271 Review

Today we're going to review part number BX88271, this is the Blue OX ATM Mini Fuse Bypass Switch for tow vehicles. On some automobiles they can only be towed if you get under the hood and you pull a fuse, if you don't remove that fuse before towing, what will happen there's a good chance that your car's battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination. So if you use this fuse disconnect system, this will allow your vehicle to be towed. This system will bypass your car's fuse, so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery. It gives you a simple alternative to having to remove the mini fuse every time you tow and since you move the mini fuse every time you tow and since you move the mini fuse right to here it will actually store the fuse so you don't lose it. This part does install very quickly and easily and permanently, basically what you'll do is remove the ATM mini fuse from your car's fuse box, open this holder right here and install the one you took out of your car's fuse box right into there and then once that's all in there, what you want to do is take these connectors right here and you connect these into the connection to where you took the fuse out of in your fuse box, so this will plug into where the fuse came out of and you'll put the fuse right here. This will maintain the function of the mini fuse so when you switch it on, if you see the switch right here, there's a white dot and not a white dot, so when you push that white dot down, that's the on position, that means you can just drive the car like normal, no problem. When you're going to tow it, push it to the off position and that will allow it to override that mini fuse so it doesn't drain the battery. This part is made in the USA.

Overall length on this is about 10 inches. One last thing what you want to do is you want to consult your vehicle owners manual to determine which fuse to pull and you always do not want to install a fuse in this fuse bypass that has more than a 20 amp rating. Also comes with a nice set of instructions that describe all that. That should do it for the review on part number BX88271 the Blue Ox ATM Mini Fuse Bypass Switch for tow vehicles.

A brilliant idea. Easy to install on a 2017 Chevy Sonic. Flipping a switch is a lot easier than pulling a fuse. 418671

The fuse by-pass was easy to install with the instructions provided. I tow a 2008 Saturn Vue behind my 2008 Bounder M/H. Before this wonderful device, I had to remove a fuse to tow the car, and install the fuse before driving the vehicle. Now it's a simple switch and I'm set. The only thing I would change is the leads that go into the fuse panel. It would be SSSSOO much easier if the leads were together rather than separate. 381991

I will not be able to try and install this item in my tow vehicle until mid-April and see if it works as advertised on-line and in videos. I just hope I ordered the right length to fit my vehicle. R/Mark H 338748

I have a 2014 CR-V, which fuse switch do I need. Does this do anything to void the warranty?

The recommended Fuse Bypass is part RM76511. Remember to verify with the owners manual which fuse you will need to bypass.
