That pretty much clinched it for me.

Could you expand on that a bit,I'm not sure if I'm clinched at all.LOL What do you think it should be? A 5k ohm I watt Fusible resistor?

The board identifier clinched it as a fuse. A fuse is only good if it is in series - otherwise the current can just ignore it, whatever it does.
Now the value...
The bands are coded for 5, 0, and 2.
2 ohms and 5 amps seems to me the most logical fit with a 12V 4.5A power supply. (I'm going by memory; I didn't go back a page and check the ps rating.)

edit: Actually, 0.2 ohms makes more sense.
But I would likely just replace it with a regular fuse unless an exact replacement fell in my lap.

That was it!!! I used a 5watt 0.5 ohm resistor and it fired up straight away,I couldn't find a 5watt,0.2 ohm resistor. I will try a fuse in there and see what happens.
