Monkeys placed the master fuse in the Mazda MPV in a very interesting place. You had to disassemble the electrical system to replace the fuse - not an easy project in a parking lot. So I called the dealership for a tow when my fuse sent out - with a bad fuse the car won’t start. But, if the car won’t start you can’t shift out of park. If you can’t shift out of park the transmission won’t turn. And of course the steering is also locked so the wheels can’t rotate and be centered. All of the above makes towing very difficult. It cost over one hundred dollars ($100) to replace a ten cent ($0.10) fuse.
