Audi Q5: Fuse Box Diagram

Before pulling a fuse from the fuse box in your Audi Q5, take a moment to review the diagrams provided below.

This article applies to the Audi Q5 (2009-present).

The (2009-present) Audi Q5 is a luxury crossover SUV that doesn’t fail to deliver on a manufacturer-made promise to bring unbeatable driving capabilities to the everyday driving enthusiast. Thanks to an enhanced engine, a 7-speed S tronic transmission, and an all-around highly responsive braking system, the Q5 is positioned as not only a highly popular compact luxury crossover SUV for daily commutes, but as one of the safest vehicles of its kind on the road today. Rated favorably across a range of safety tests, the Q5 scores well among both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the European New Car Assessment Programme. When attempting minor repairs on the Q5, drivers are strongly encouraged to refer back to their owner’s manual. Let’s go over the various fuse box diagrams that you’ll need to access before attempting to repair malfunctioning wiring or electrical equipment.

Fuse Box Locations

Rear Cargo Area Fuse Box

  • Figure 1. How easy to spot was this fuse box?
  • Figure 2. This is the actual fuse box.

There is a fuse box panel located in the cargo area of your Q5. It could be hard to spot if you don’t know where to look, however. Open your cargo door, and then look to the right of your cargo area. You should see a small fuse box (where the small net and 12V socket are located).

Interior Passenger Cabin Fuse Boxes

Your front fuse box is located underneath the steering panel and is protected by a plastic cover. A second fuse box is located on the passenger’s side of the vehicle in approximately the same location (obviously, it won’t be under the steering panel, though). The above diagram shows all the fuses housed in the front of your vehicle.

Fuse Puller(s)

Your fuse boxes will come with a fuse puller that you can use to pull out a blown fuse and remove it from the box. Once it is removed, you would obviously need to replace it with a new one. If your fuse puller is missing, use a pair of tweezers. As for opening the fuse box panel itself, you won’t need any special tools. Simply, open the fuse box cover using your hands. Apply pressure as needed until the cover pops off.

Common Questions

When replacing a blown fuse, can I use a higher or lower amperage?

No. You must use the correct amperage. Check your fuse box diagram if you are uncertain which amperage you require.

Where can I purchase replacement fuses?

Online or at a local auto parts stores. Big box retailers that feature an automotive section, such as Walmart and Target, may also sell fuses. Generally speaking, fuses can be purchased in bulk or in a single-item package. Individually, they cost just a few cents.

What are the indicators that a fuse is blown?

If an electrical component, such as a dome light, power windows or heated seats suddenly gives out, the most likely culprit is a blown fuse. When inspecting an existing fuse for damage, be on the look out for a broken center strip or a thick cloud of black debris. If you notice either, then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.
