1996 Isuzu Trooper 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual
In trouble shooting loss of 12V to the cigarette lighter assembly I discovered a solder wire type jumper on the back. It was between the 12V male connector and the center terminal connector on the inside of the assembly. That link was open. The Chilton manual I have, aside from identifying the fuse number for the circuit, does not include it in the wiring diagrams or say anything about this fuse-type jumper. What is the purpose for having the fuse link when the circuit is protected by a 20A fuse? Is it acceptable to just use a solid jumper and allow the 20A fuse to provide the protection? If not, what fuse type jumper wire do I use and where can I get it? In the attached photo, the jumper is missing.
have the same problem?
