  • Mini Fuse

Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces your vehicle's mini-fuse and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holder keeps fuse secure and functional.


Features:

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


Specs:

  • Application: ATM mini-fuse not exceeding 20 amps
  • Harness length: 13"


Note: This FuseMaster bypass is not designed to hold an ATM micro fuse. If your vehicle has a micro fuse, you will need to use an ATM mini fuse of the same amperage (not included) to install in the FuseMaster.


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


Roadmaster's FuseMaster makes it easy to prep your vehicle for towing. Simply remove the fuse indicated in your car's manual and replace it with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuse and maintain its functionality. So once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuse again.


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


Installation

The preferred location for mounting the FuseMaster switch is the access panel inside your vehicle that leads to your fuse box. This switch must be mounted on a plastic surface that is no thicker than 1/4". Do not mount the switch on a metal surface.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on the access panel - one on each side of the toggle - to remind you which way the switch must go for each application. Place the "Drive" sticker on the side of the toggle that has the white dot. (To drive, the switch must be flipped so that the side with the white dot is depressed.) The "Tow" sticker can then be placed on the opposite side.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch Installation - 2019 Chevrolet Sonic

Rob here at etrailer.com, and today you're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Fusemaster fuse bypass on our 2019 Chevrolet Sonic.We have our switch mounted on this panel right here, that's right in front of our fuse box, on the driver's side. Now, you can see we have a double and a single hooked up, and these are just going to hold the factory fuses in place, so we're not going to have to worry about carrying them around or losing them.Our fuse bypasses are going to come with everything you see here. Will come with the harness, the switch, as well as all the cables necessary to get it installed. Just keep in mind that the double and the single are going to be sold separately. And we have one fuse that actually needs to be pulled underneath our hood and it's actually a low profile ATM fuse. Our Fusemaster is going to use mini fuses, so you will need to pick up an additional mini fuse, so that we can put it into the fuse holder.So if you're new to flat towing or you've been doing it for a while and your tired of crawling under the dash, crawling under the hood every time you want to tow or drive your car, the Fusemaster is going to make it really easy just to flip a switch and hit the road.

But now that we've seen what it looks like and gone over some of the features, let's install them together.Now, whenever we go to flat tow our Sonic, there's a lot of things we need to hook up. Need to hook up our tow bar, our wiring, and everything else, but if we look in our owner's manual, it's going to tell us that we need to pull out a few fuses so that our battery won't die. Well now it's not that big of a deal, but I don't want to have to go on underneath the hood every time, pull the fuses out, hold onto them, and really hope that I don't lose them, because once I get to where I'm going, then I'm going to have to put them back in just so I can drive my car.But with our Fusemaster, it's going to be easy as flipping a switch.Now, keep in mind this is only going to be one component of a complete safe flat tow set up. For a whole setup, you're going to need a base plate, a tow bar, tow bar wiring, a breaking system, and safety cables. And specifically for our Sonic, we're also going to need a fuse bypass, because there are several fuses that we're going to have to pull underneath the hood and inside, so we can safely flat tow our Sonic.

And also finally, a stoplight switch so we can get the monitor light hooked up on our breaking system. And you can find all of these components here at each etrailer.com.To begin our installation, we want to grab our fuse bypass out of the kit. Now if we look at it, you'll see that there's going to be two black wires and two red wires, and if we follow them up to the switch, you can see the switch is going to have a little divider in between the two. That's to make sure you separate the two circuits. We're going to go and pull all the spades off of the switch, so we can separate the harness from the switch.Now for right now we can just set the switch aside, because we're actually going to need to hook these up first.

Now one thing I do want to mention before we get too far in the install, our fuse bypass is going to use the ATM mini style fuses. If you have micro fuses or the low profile fuses, you're going to need to pick up the appropriate size amperage fuse, so we can put them in our fuse bypass.We'll come to the dash on the driver's side. All the way on the outside by the door, we're going to have this panel here with a little cutout. Grab it, we're going to pull the panel down. Now, on the back of it, it's going to have all of our fuses labeled.

It'll be right inside.Now the few fuses that we're going to be working with, we're going to be working with three, they're going to be inside here. The first one is going to be BCM1, second one will be BCM2, and then the third one is going to be the DLIS fuse, which is going to be the very top.So if we look inside our fuse panel here, BCM1 will be the bottom 20 amp fuse. BCM2 will be the second to bottom 20 amp fuse. And we'll stay in the same row, and we're going to go all the way to the top. And yours may or may not have one, but if you have one, there'll be a 2 amp fuse right here. Ours doesn't have it, so we're not going to have to worry about that fuse.We got a pair of needle nose pliers or fuse pullers, and we're going to pull out all the fuses that we just labeled.Pull out the bottom one and the other 20 amp fuse. Now again, since we don't have that top one, we're not gonna be worrying about that one.And we'll take the spade terminal end. It's got the flat sections on it. We're going to put this into the fuse holder just like it was a fuse. So we'll take one of the wires. You want to make sure you get it into the fuse holder. And just insert it. And we'll take the same color wire and put it into the other side of the fuse.And again, you want to make sure you're separating the circuits. So both black wires on one and both red wires on one.So this is what it should look like, once you have everything connected. Your wires should be going in where the fuses are and they should be separate. Now if you do have that 2 amp fuse that's at the very top, you're going to want to get another double fuse bypass, because we actually have another one underneath the hood that we need to pull. But if you don't have that 2 amp fuse, and you just need a switch for the one underneath the hood, Roadmaster does have a single one, and we're going to be using that for our application.Our switch isn't going to be able to be mounted close to the one we already have. We're going to need to extend the wires out a little bit. So I'm just going to pull the wires out of the loom, just so I can get access to them. And when we're looking at them, you can see there's kind of a raised section on the wire right here, that's a factory connection point, and we want to stay away from that. So I'm just going to come up a little bit from there, and then I'm going to cut my wire right in half.Cut the terminals off. And we'll strip back the end of each one of our wires.And I'm going to take a butt connector, I'm going to crimp it on the end of each one of our wires. Now the kit doesn't come with butt connectors or excess wire, but you can pick it up here at etrailer.com.Now we grab some extra wire. I'd say you need probably about anywhere from 6 to 10 feet at the most. It's always better to have a little bit more than you need, but should be plenty of wire to reach to the outside. So we'll just extend our wires, crimp them into those butt connectors.Now, I'm gonna use a heat gun to shrink down my heat shrink butt connectors. If you're using an open flame, or a torch, or a lighter, or anything like that, you just want to be careful not to burn or char the connectors or the wires.Now we're going to need to get our wires to the outside underneath the hood. So if we follow our floorboard back and towards the firewall, and if we look up, we're going to have this really large rubber grommet. Now we already have some wires going through it for installing our braking system and a few other things. But if you go to the very corner, or that edge that's closest to the center of the vehicle, you can use a drill bit, a screwdriver or utility knife and make a hole and it'll be far enough away from the factory, wires won't get damaged, but it makes it real easy to go out to the engine bay.Now, I just took an airline tube and I pushed it through that rubber grommet, you can use a coat hanger or wherever you have, that's just going to keep its shape when you start pushing on it. And then I took my wire and I attached it to my airline tube. That way I could pull all the excess through and get the slack out to the engine bay.Now you do want to double check to see how much you're pulling through, because you want that switch to be as close to the other switch as we can.So, now we can come to our fuse box, on the driver's side, right here on the outside, right by the fender. Squeeze these two tabs at the top. Rotate the cover box up and that'll give us access. Now according to the owner's manual, we need to pull the number seven fuse, which is going to be a 7.5 amp, that's in between these two 5 amp fuses right here.We'll take our fuse puller and we'll pull that 7.5 amp fuse out.Now you can see this is an ATM low profile fuse, but our spades will still fit in there. We're just going to need to make sure that we pick up a 7.5 amp mini fuse so it can fit in the fuse holder on our bypass. So I estimate about how much wire we're going to need. We'll trim off the excess, and we'll strip back both ends, and we'll put a butt connector on, just like we did before.We're gonna want to grab the spades that we cut off in the beginning. We'll strip back the end and we can crimp it in the end of our butt connector.We'll just insert the spades into the terminals, just like we did inside, make sure that they're separated, and then they're going into that terminal. Clean up our wires, make sure they're in there and routed around everything. And we put our cover back in place.Now, the panel that we removed originally, where our fuses are coming out of, I'd like to mount switches right on this panel, but I don't want to lose my legend, so I'm going to actually remove this sticker and I'm going to put it in my owner's manual, that way it's still here and I won't damage it because we're going to have to drill a hole to mount our switches. So let me just peel the sticker off and put it somewhere safe, where we still have it.And since we're putting two switches in, I went ahead and made two marks. Try to make them as level as I can. Now, I'm going to drill a small pilot hole through there. And then I'm going to be using a three quarter inch bit. That way I can get a nice, round, three quarter inch hole.Now that that hole's drilled, we'll go and repeat that for our other side.So we can grab one of our switches, and we're going to take the plastic nut off the back. We'll take our switch, we're going to slide it all the way through. And again, try and make it nice and level. We'll flip it over and we'll take the nut. Now, there's teeth on there. You want to make sure the teeth are facing towards the back of the panel. Now we can thread it on. Make sure the switch isn't moving around. It's nice and secure. And once we have this one on, we'll do the same thing for other switch.Now that everything is connected, we can put our fuse in. Now, we can reuse the factory fuses since they're the mini fuses. So put both the two fuses into the fuse holders and close up the cover. Now, since these are both 20 amp fuses, it really doesn't matter where we put them. But in case you need to know which one is which, if we open up the loom, we can see that this fuse holder is connected to a black wire, so we know that this one is connected to that one.And then for our single fuse that's underneath the hood, since that micro fuse isn't going to fit, we'll grab the 7.5 amp mini fuse and we'll put that one in there.And then, it's just a matter of hooking up the terminals back to the switch. Now again, it doesn't matter which one we hook it up to, so you just want to make sure that we plug them both into the correct switch. So the single one will go to the single switch. And then when we're putting in our double switch, again, you just want to make sure that you have both the black and both the red on one side and separate the circuits.Then we can just tuck our excess wires and fuses back into the panel. And we can click our panel back in place.Now the final step is going to be putting our drive and tow stickers on, so we know which position the switch is in. If the dot is depressed like it is now, that's going to be the drive position. We'll go ahead and put our sticker up top. Then we grab the tow sticker and put it right below that, so we know when the switches are up we're in drive mode, and when the switches are down, we're in tow mode.

Roadsters product worked well. I did not remove the lower dash part, and just did extreme yoga to remove and install the fuse bypass. This was the worst part. I can't believe that Honda put this fuse block in such a difficult to access location. The rest was simple. Installing the small connectors was a trick, (I also didn't use the fuse connector) but I finally got the connections in the fuse block. Drilled the hole from the outside and installed the switch. The location could have been lower and more to the left as there was a thicket portion of the dash on the back that prevented the lock nut from seating, but the switch is tight and works well. This is absolutely the way to go instead of pulling a fuse on my 2014 Honda CRV! 243910

    I looked up the owner's manual for a 2017 Chevrolet Sonic and I saw that you can dinghy (or flat) tow a Sonic with an automatic transmission unless it is the RS model. On page 279 of the owner's manual it only specifies that the DLIS fuse from the instrument panel fuse block needs to be pulled.

    Page 236 of the owners manual for a 2013 Honda CR-V states for extended towing you will need to remove the 7.5 amp accessory radio fuse located in the interior fuse box. This fuse should not be too difficult to pull but if you wanted to use a fuse bypass it is # RM76511. There should not be a problem installing any tow package components under the vehicle. For any wiring you can zip tie it up to an existing wiring harness. Avoid areas that may pinch or burn the wiring.

    Yes, to flat tow your 2013 Honda Fit you will need to pull fuses. To make that easier the part # RM76511 that you referenced is recommended. This will install in place of the fuse and will allow the circuit to be deactivated with the flip of a switch. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine which fuse needs to get pulled and for more information on flat towing your vehicle.

  • 2015 Honda Fit Fuse Bypass Switch Recommendation
    I checked with Roadmaster and they recommend both the part # RM76511 and the part # RM76512. The # RM76512 is great because it can kill two circuits at a time. Since you have two circuits in the interior of your vehicle that need to be deactivated plus one under the hood I would recommend both products for you. I attached an install video that shows the # RM76511 installed in a similar Honda Fit as yours

  • Can a 30 Amp Fuse be Used in the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass on a 2012 Honda Fit
    If you're going to be listening to Taylor Swift you might need a higher fuse rating! But seriously the fuse bypass for your 2012 Honda Fit, # RM76511, is rated for a maximum 20 amp fuse. But, you really only have to pull the fuse if you will be towing for more than 8 hours. Otherwise you can pull over somewhere and then start up the Fit to let the alternator charge up the battery. Be sure to follow the flat towing prep information from the owner's manual prior to towing the vehicle again...

  • Battery Draining While Flat Towing a 2017 GMC Terrain
    The correct fuse that will need to be removed on your 2017 GMC Terrain will depend on the engine size. If you have the 2.4L L4 engine then you will indeed need to remove the #16 fuse but if you have the 3.6L V6 engine then you will need to remove the #32 fuse. The fuse box that you will need to access is located inside of the vehicle on the passenger's side of the center console, not in the engine bay compartment as you described. To eliminate having to remove the fuse by hand each time...

  • Correct Fuse to Pull for Flat Towing 2014 Honda CR-V
    The #19 (ACC) fuse is the correct fuse to pull on your 2014 CR-V for flat towing but some of the owner's manuals showed the incorrect location of this fuse in its diagram. Your manual may highlight this particular fuse as the fourth in the row of 7.5 amp fuses. The #19 fuse though is actually the first in this row of 7.5 amp fuses, as indicated in the attached diagram. To assist with this process I recommend adding the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM76511. Once installed this...

  • Will a Fuse Bypass Keep Battery From Draining when Flat Towing a 2013 Ford Edge
    I did not see anything about removing the key to flat tow the 2013 Ford Edge. Not that it should have an affect on the battery but still, you never know. It sounds like you still have things with power running even with the key in the flat tow position. So it could still potentially drain the battery. To keep a maintenance charge on the battery I recommend using a harness such as # BX88206 with the tow bar wiring you will be using so that you can run a wire from the connector at the...

    Yes, since the 2009 and 2012 model years of the Honda Fit are both part of the same second generation the installation of the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM76511 will be essentially identical for the two vehicles.

  • 2013 Jeep Wrangler Turn Signals Stop Flashing When Being Flat Towed
    The Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM76511 is not vehicle-specific so it can work on a Wrangler but I do not believe that would be the solution to your issue. It sounds to me like you are in need of diodes; I looked up the harness you referred to and while it is similar to something like the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267, your harness did not seem to include diodes like the Roadmaster kit. What it sounds like is happening is there is electrical...
