Circuit Breakers


Circuit breakers are used on certain electrical components requiring high amperage, such as the headlamp circuit, electrical seats and/or windows to name a few. The advantage of the circuit breaker is its ability to open and close the electrical circuit as the load demands, rather than the necessity of a part replacement, should the circuit be opened with another protective device in line.


Circuit breakers are simply pulled out and pushed in for replacement.

Always replace a blown circuit breaker with one of the specified rating. Never substitute a higher amperage rating, since severe wiring damage and possible fire can result.
