    But are the links located on the battery terminal under the red connector cover?

    There are two (which look like fuses) links that appear to be blown. Vehicle has no power, what so ever.



    Just want to be clear where these links are located.



    Thanks for your help.

No power electric problem


No, not a relay. The ignition switch is too central to the electrical system. It sends power out to most circuits on the vehicle-those that are designated "hot in accessory, run, start" or some that are only "hot in run or start". Being central, it requires a direct battery source, a "hot at all times" source. Anytime the battery is hooked up, the yellow wire to the ignition switch is a hot wire (actually 2 yellow wires-they splice off before entering the switch or before entering the electrical connector for the switch). The source is Fusible Link M on the starter relay, one of many Fusible Links there, and tied in with the positive battery cable connection. So also, the alternator link is there, so is the headlight switch, the hazard and brake lights Fusible Link, and some others that do supply relays (fuel pump, eec relay, etc.). But Fuse Link M is dedicated to only the ignition switch. If you have no power at the connection to the switch, look at fuse link M. It should have some identifying legend or mark.
Where you saw the sparks, was it at the switch itself or the electrical connector to it? Either way you will have to check. If at the switch, It could be a bad switch, and may have also blew out the fusible link. If at the connector, check if it damaged the connector and is losing contact. Post back with what you find. Good luck.

What guage wire for the black fusible link?


There should be 2 white wires coming from the alternator. There is a splice where it will go into 1 wire then into the fusible link. If the fusible link is not burned, simply match the gauge wire coming from it. You should never use anything smaller in diameter than 10 gauge wire for the charging system. If you want to replace the fusible link, you can run separate white wires from the alternator to the positive battery post with individual fuses or fusible links. I would recommend each wire have its own Maxi fuse holder with a fuse no less than 60 amps each.

Brand new battery and alternator but the alternator won't charge the battery, why?


two possibilities that immediately come to my mind from past experience:

(1) check that 2-connector plug on the side of the alternator! if that is disconnected, or not connected tightly, the alternator will not work until the engine is revved up to about 3000. once the engine hits 3000 RPMs the alternator energizes itself and begins to charge.

(2) check the fusible links. they're in a small compartment next to the battery. I remember something about this happening to mine and it was a fusible link. there are 4 of them, the main one says "ALT NAT/BATTERY" and the next one says "IGN SW"... check those two. I'm willing to bet it's that fusible link. I remember that the car started ok but nothing else electric worked. furthermore, with that fusible link broken, the charge indicator (battery) light came on very dim when the ignition switch was off. did you accidentally short something when you did the alternator? I bet this is what's causing that.

My dad's '95 Buick Lesabre Custom does not want to keep the battery charging, I've cleaned all the terminals, checked all the grounds and still no luck. I've replaced the alternator and...


It most likely is a fusible link on the starter,connect a large wire(better to be larger than the one that is on there already)to the back of the alternator and go to the positive side of the battery,or to the starter hot post,where the battery positive cable connects to the starter,this will take care of the problem,no fusible link will be needed.The fusible link really hinders the charging capacity to the battery and running of the engine,cause it carries less amps in the smaller fusible link wire,this will solve the problem most likely.

No electrical current from battery where are fusible links


I realize this is a very old post, but I just encountered the same problem....no juice at all to ignition from battery......the problem was the 3 weird looking fuses attached to the positive battery cable. I replaced all 3 for about $12.00 and she fired right up. Some models have a fuse box/panel....mine does not, and these 3 fuses are critical for getting current to the ignition.
I'm sure by now you have it figured out, but for anyone in the future, this may help.

Need help replacing fusible link connector


It doesn't matter because they all carry +12V to the respective circuits. What does matter is which fusible link goes to which circuit (assuming they are different) but if you didn't cut them off, then they should still be connected to the correct circuits.

Fuseable link


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In most Japanese brands, the fusible link is the short wire right after the battery that goes to a connector. Often, the battery + terminal has 2 wires; 1 very big that goes to the starter and another the feeds the fusebox. This 2nd wire from the + terminal is the fusible link.

Often fault with the fusible link is a corroded or burned connector/pin.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Celica won't start normally


check for a blown fusible link between the battery and ignition switch
  • a small length of wire inserted in the thinner cable from,
or
  • a small black bodied square box inside a case on the side of,
the battery connector, I forget which goes on the celica

check connections to ignition switch
Check/replace ignition switch

not a solution just something to check, fusible links -- fuse
