The Fuse Puzzle is a puzzle that must be solved twice in Silent Hill: Homecoming. In both encounters, the object is to rewire five colored wires in a fuse box so that power is restored to a certain location. The wires are connected at the top of the box, but left disconnected at the bottom. The player must figure out the correct place that each wire attaches to at the bottom by testing the connection with a switch. The switch determines how many wires are in the correct place, but not which or where. Each green light that turns on (there are five in total) after flipping the test switch signifies a wire in the right place, but it is left to the player to discern which wire that is

Overlook Penitentiary Overlook Penitentiary
- The second time Alex encounters this puzzle is in the Overlook Penitentiary, after freeing Deputy Wheeler. Before rewiring the fuse box, Alex must first find Deputy Wheeler Box Wire (three wires) that are missing from it. The locations of the missing wires are:
**In the cell adjacent to the cell with the fuse box. It is exposed from an abandoned radio.
**On the ground floor of the same block, in the cell with a truck rammed inside. The wire is hanging from one of the truck's lights.
**In the guard tower of the following upstairs corridor. It is amongst a set of tools meant to fix a broken surveillance camera.
After collecting the three wires needed and placing them in the box, the process of solving the puzzle is the same as previously encountered in the Grand Hotel. The solution in all difficulty settings is:Red, White, Green, Blue, Yellow
