Fusible link in 1993 festiva

I left my headlights on and killed the battery. I jump started the car and it burned the fuse after it started.I charged the battery over night and it ran fine for a month.I stopped at a gas station the other night and left the headlights on for about ten minutes.when I started the car it burned the fuse.I charged the battery for an hour and it is now fine but if I let the battery get a little low it will burn the fuse.

    Could the voltage regulator do it? It blew 4 fuses in a row.I charged the battery and no problem.It is always the main fuseble link.

This is not a battery problem there is a short in the system. a low battery will never blow a fuse because in order to blow a fuse you have to excede the amprage rating and a short will do this look for a loose wire on the headlight harness or a bad connector........please rate this

Had a customers car do this and tested the daylights out of everything to no avail..."non-factory" solution was to replace link with a 30 amp breaker...when problem happened breaker would open, then close several minutes later, returning to normal operation. Can't hurt to try it!!!

Pull the remnants of the fusible link out with a small pair of pliers. The ends are a standard blade type plug. Replace the link with a 40 amp cartridge type fuse. The "long leg" type is plug and play. You probably just stressed the fusible link meaning it did its job. My bet is that you pop in the cartridge fuse and you will be good to go. I run these in all of my festivas. So do hundreds of people on fordfestiva.com. It is THE place for all things festiva. There are thousands of knowledgable helpful members there.

It is your main fusible link. It is located in the center of a block of 3 fusible links located in the engine bay on the front of the drivers side strut tower. Usually it is corrosion. You can usually unplug the lInk, clean it off and replace it. A wise upgrade is a cartridge type fuse. Join us for free at fordfestiva.com for ALL festiva answers. They last forever.

Check all the fuses pull them out ,look at them one by one,also there are some fusible links that will pull apart like taffy if they are burned,they look like wires,they will be at the end of the positive battery cable,where ever it goes,to the starter or relay.

Lights killing battery


HAVE YOUR MECHANIC CHECK THE FUSEABLE LINK BY THE SOLENOID. IF THIS LINK IS BURNED THE ALTERNATOR CAN NOT SEND CURRENT BACK TO THE BATTERY. IF ONLY PARTIALLY BURNED IT MAY SEND CURRENT, BUT NOT FULL CURRENT TO KEEP UP WITH THE DEMANDS THE HEADLIGHTS PLACE ON THE BATTERY.
