If it turns out your fuse is good you can move on to checking the component itself. Make sure it is plugged in, free to move and not burnt or melted. Many of the electrical components on your vehicle can be tested without being removed by measuring a resistance value between certain contacts. If you’re handy with an ohm meter and have a repair manual for your vehicle you can test the component that way.
The conductor inside the fuse is made of a metal similar to solder. It has a lower melting point than the wire itself. The size of the conductor is calibrated very carefully so that when the rated current is reached, enough heat is generated to melt the conductor and so break the circuit.
