SOURCE: The green wire of the

This means theres a dead short somewhere, so the systems it runs have a short you will need to remove power from each one until the short stops. take a look around for wires touching ground, the raido woundnt be the problem it has its on fuse and so does the horn, remove the starter wire, the small wire to starter and leave the big battery cable going to starter and then try to start it, i know it wont start but this will tell you if its the starter thats shorting out, if that doiesnt do it then continue remove connections until you locate it, also repair the wire and then turn the key on and see if it blows the fuselink if it doesnt then you know its the starter, but then crank and see if it blows to make sure, if it only blows when you crank it then its the starter, if it blows as soon as the key is turn on then its something else. hope this is helpful, good luck.

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.

Why dont i have power when i turn my key on in 1991 ford bronco

Either power is not getting to the switch-check for an ignition fuse or a fusible link just off the battery-or power is not being transmitted through the switch-in that case, replace the electrical part of the ignition switch.

There should always be a hot wire going to the switch-it is hot at all times, just waiting to be sent somewhere through the switch to run, accessories, or start. First check if you have power to the switch. If not, may need to consult a wiring diagram, but likely a fusible link near the battery has failed.

1988 Dodge Omni won't start

On the positive side of battery Julie is where your fusible links are,you say it's getting hot,I would follow all wires,look for burnt or swollen wires,they go to starter.Here's a wiring diagram,it shows that you have 3 fusible links leaving your positive battery,they need looking at,check all wiring in line with positive battery cable.Look at diagram number 25,enlarge to see.

Locating the fusible link on a 2004 chrysler pacifica

A fusible link is a special wire that acts like a fuse - burning in two if the amperage load on the circuit is too high. It is not likely the wire would work sometimes and not others.
Someone would need to check to see if the starter has battery power and power from the key which goes thru the neutral safety switch.
I'd have to see it to know what was changed.

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.

I have no power to the ignition,dash,or starter.all fuses are good.could it be a circuit breaker

Look for a "fusible link" in the red wire going from the battery to the firewall or engine compartment fuse box. This is generally a smaller size wire inserted in the bigger wire, and it has molded-over connections to the larger wire. If you see a burned spot on the insulation, it's a good bet you had a major overload that fried the link. If you don't, flex the wire to be sure it bends uniformly - if it is broken, there will be a spot that bends too easily. In most vehicles the fusible link is in one of the cables running across the top of the firewall just below the windshield wipers.

If the fusible link is burned out, remove all fuses except for ECM, IGN and FUEL (i. e., strip out everything except what you need to make the engine run. Replace the fusible link with the same size and length of wire as the original. Start the engine and feel the new link to see if it is getting hot. If not, install the other fuses one at a time with all accessories turned off, and check the link each time. Make sure you are installing the correct fuse size in each location. If at some point the link starts to get hot, you have a clue as to which circuit is overloaded. Inspect the wiring on that circuit, and if any devices on that circuit are not working normally, repair them.

The fusible link may also burn out if you have an over-sized after-market audio system powered through it, crank it up while the headlights and wipers are on, then hit the brakes or honk the horn (i. e., excess total load).

2005 chevy tahoe battery was hooked up backward !! Not me ! But, Where do I start ?

Start by checking all of the fuses and all of the fusible link wires, and you will know a fusible link wire when you find one because they will stretch similar to a rubber band. Fusible link wires are usually located at the fuse/relay junction box in the engine compartment, or at the starter solenoid, or sometimes at the fire-wall. Also check the fuse/relay junction box for any PAL type of fusible links.

Starter would not work replaced,the wire on the old starter was burned off,one thats on the unit not cable,still nothing ,do not hear the solenoid click in

The wires and the fusible links at the starter should be checked, and you will know a bad fusible link wire when you find one, because they will stretch like a rubber-band, and repair any fusible link wire that you find that are burned out.

If you can not find any problem with the wiring or fusible links at the starter, then check the "start" fuse for the starter field wire, (if it has one it will usually be located out in the fuse/relay junction box) also the starter field wire should be connected to the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid and it will be "hot" or have power to it only when the key is in the "start" position, and if the field wire to the starter is the wire that burned up then the ignition switch itself might have been damaged.

Fusible link wire gets really hot.

Removing the two smaller wires stops the exciter current to the alt which stops it charging.
Usually if a wire is getting hot its because:
A: Current overload..
B: Corrosion in wire restricting current.
C: Corroded terminal.
