    A fused jumper wire is a wire that is run from a power source , like from the positive battery post and the wire has a fuse in the middle of the wire at some point.. That way if you accidentally short the power wire to ground, then the fuse will blow and open the power circuit. It is just a safety feature to have on a hot wire.. a built in circuit breaker . good luck , Chuck
