The ignition Off Draw (IOD) fuse is used to prevent battery discharge during shipping or long-term storage of the vehicle.
The IOD fuse is located in the Total Integrated Power Module (TIPM). If the fuse is not completely inserted, partial contact of the fuse terminals could occur. When the IOD fuse holder is depressed into the carrier, an initial distinct detent will be felt to overcome the “pre-hold” position. You must then continue to push straight down on the IOD pre-holder until no further downward movement is encountered.
If the fuse is not pushed down symmetrically, two detents may be felt as each side snaps past the pre-hold position.Push down until no further downward movement is felt.
On 2006 and 2007 PT Cruisers, the circuits fed by the IOD fuse include radio, security module and siren, wireless control module, hands-free module, satellite radio, power mirrors, clock, memory seat, amplifier, CCN wake-up with ignition off and Homelink.
