Pontiac Fiero 1984-1988 Repair Guide

Circuit Breakers

Print

Circuit breakers are used in conjunction or instead of fuses to protect the circuit from an overload. If the circuit becomes overloaded, the circuit breaker heats up and at a specified temperature, the contacts in the breaker will open to stop the flow of current. When the circuit breaker cools down, the contacts will close and restore current flow. This condition usually causes the affected circuit to blink on and off until the problem is repaired.
