Question about 1989 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

'89 Mustang LX 2.3-5spd. I have a draw on the battery that I have narrowed down to the ORNG/BLK 16ga. fused link at the starter relay. I need to find out what circuits that feeds to pinpoint further. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Scott

Were is the main fuse located on a 1989 dodge w100


Most of them are fusible(main) links are in the wiring. Usually down by the starter or up at the battery. 89, if you have a starter relay, they could be connected there. Multiple wires going to the positive side.

How is 2001 Mustang GT parasitic draw on battery related somehow to FU 27 and FU39? Battery drains overnight but I cannot narrow down a faulty component.


Allfordmustangs.com has an article if you Web search your car with fuse 27 and 32 as part of the search. It blames the GEM as part of the problem(wiper) and also points out that the radio has several power feeds. Fuse 27 is hot all the time, but fuse 32 is only hot in ACC or Run. So as long as you can test fuse 32 to be hot in only Acc or Run, it should not drain the battery in Off position. You might want to test the ignition switch to verify it is really turned off.

The all mustangs article had different symptoms, as you did not indicate whether the fuses popped.

The wiper motor is suppose to derail and turn off. If you can unplug the wiper motor overnight and the battery stays up, you would know that it is either the wiper motor or wiper control. The radio is on the other fuse circuit. But whether the radio can drain a battery in a short time, you need to measure draw, but if the fuse pops, the battery should stay up. Again, disconnecting a circuit like a radio, and then having the battery stay up, would point to the radio circuit being at fault.

94 ford escort lx. Only clicks at relay when trying to start. Replaced battery, ignition relay, neutral safety switch, ignition switch, starter tests good. Power going to starter but no power to exciter...


if you have battery power on the large terminal at the starter and the same on the smaller wire when someone Is turning the key to start and the starter has a good ground then the starter is bad drawing too much amperage causing the clicking sound.

My 1990 ford mustang lx with a 2.3l 5sp. wont start its making a dead battery sound when i try to start it i put a new battery, solenoid, and the starter check out great and its still makin the dead...


There is a starter relay--probably in the relay box by the battery. Swap the starter relay with the horn relay and try to start the car. If that works, replace the relay. If it doesn't work, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Starter turns but no ignition, PK3 M security


I have an 03 montana intermittant no start, security light flashes at the time of no start. Under the steering colom is a plug that comes fron the ignition with 4 wires pink , orng , blk, ppl. follow the wires and there is a plug. Try unpluging it then plug back in and try to start vehicle. If it starts then what i have done with it was wire in a relay that cuts power on ignition off and will power the module up on ignition.

blk to # 85 on relay, cut orng and attach one to # 30, the other to # 87, then attach pink to # 86. I have this working for 3 months so far no more intermittant start.

Where can i find a new alternator wiring harness or (diagram to make one) for a 1985 mercury cougar that has a 5.0 engine. The local area parts/salvage dealers do not have this part.


My software won't let me link the diagram to the internet. So I will describe it to you. I'll use factory
color codes, so if you have any harness left you can
splice to it. On the regulator there's 4 terminals one
ot them is (A) from this a yell/wht wire that go's to a
fusable link then to the + battery side of the solenoid.
The (F) orng/ltblue wire go's to the field terminal on
the alternator.The S or stator wire (wht/blk) go's to
the Stator term on the alt. The I or ign. wire (ltgrn/wht)
go's to the alternator light. (or gauge) Next the B or
battery connection wire (blk/orng) from the alternator
go's to the fusable link, the same one that the yell/wht (A) wire went. Also there is a wht/blk wire
that runs from the stator term. on the alt. to the
choke heater. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Something is drawing power from the battery constantly


PUT A TEST LIGHT FROM THE GROUND POST OF YOUR BATTERY TO THE GROUND CABLE CLAMP.REMOVE THE CLAMP FROM THE BATTERY AND THE LIGHT WILL LIGHT IF THERE IS A DRAIN.START UNPLUGGING STUFF [START WITH THE ALTERNATOR] AND WHEN YOU GET TO THE DRAW THE LIGHT WILL GO OUT. TRY PULLING FUSES TO NARROW DOWN THE CIRCUT.WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT CHECK THE OWNERS MANUAL TO SEE ALL COMPONENTS THAT YOU NEED TO CHECK. MOST OF THE TIME THERE IS A DIODE GONE IN THE ALTERNATER CAUSEING A 4 AMP DRAIN,IT WILL NEED A RECTIFIER PUT IN IT.HOPE THIS HELPS.
