Another,"whatsit"?

This is for "general" electrical discussions. Audio, security, remote start, and power accessories should go here, since they don't seem to fit anywhere else. Not for diesel-specific (like glow systems), or gasoline-specific (like ignition systems) topics.

Left side of the dash, always powered, red and black wire. Looks like a little circuit breaker.
What is it?

Indeed. It is a circuit breaker and it is in the headlight circuit. Just why the Isuzu guys decided to hide this under the dash is a mystery to me. I have had one fail and it was a bugger to find. The failure was corrosion at one of the riveted terminals which I repaired by soldering. Been OK for a long time now.
