My safety bar switch went out and I tried to jump the wires

Customer Question

My safety bar switch went out and I tried to jump the wires to get it to move out of the way, which didn't work. I replaced the switch, but it still doesn't work. Is there a fuse that I may have blown?

There are two small fuse boxes located at the rear of the engine compartment.Open the rear engine door and look to the lower right of the engine assembly. The two small covers,one above the other, held on with metal clips are the fuse boxes.
