Default what is this fuse?

Hi folks,

I took a look for the first time at fuses in my 2002 PT Limited, automatic transmission to see if the #8 fuse for the fog lights was removed by the previous owner. It was.

I then noticed that the #16 fuse (10A) labeled "A/STICK IGNITION" is also missing. What exactly is it for?

Thank you.

Hurray! I get to answer a question!

The fog lamp fuse was probably removed because the fog lamps were not shutting off. Very common. There is a switch in the multifunction control stick (left side, for the headlights and such) that goes bad. You can replace the entire stick, or remove the fuse. I just paid a local shop $77 to do it, plus $68 for the part. There are step-by-step instructions on these forums right now that can walk you through the procedure.

Replace Multifunction Switch w/fog lamps

The other fuse is supposed to be empty for the 2002 model; it is a "placeholder," for the model year 2003. So forget about that one.

If you replace the stick yourself, I would love to read about the experience.

Hey, I'm really glad that I posted a question you could answer!

Thanks for the info about the A/STICK fuse. I'll just leave it out, then.

I have another post going regarding the fog lamps. The MFswitch was replaced by the previous owner, but the fog lamps are unplugged. That led me to see if the fuse was missing or not. I'm tempted to replace the fuse and plug the fog lamps back in, given that it has a new MF switch, but I am also hesitant as, if it melts the new MF switch, I'm currently not in a position to easily be able to replace it.
