Fusible Links

The engine compartment wiring harness has several fusible links. The same size wire with a special hypalon insulation must be used when replacing a fusible link.
The links are located in the following areas:

  1. A molded splice at the starter solenoid Bat terminal, a 14 gauge red wire.
  2. A 16 gauge red fusible link at the junction block to protect the unfused wiring of 12 gauge or larger wire. This link stops at the bulkhead connector.
  3. The alternator warning light and field circuitry is protected by a 20 gauge red wire fusible link used in the battery feed to voltage regular #3 terminal. The link is installed as a molded splice in the circuit at the junction block.
  4. The ammeter circuit is protected by two 20 gauge fusible links installed as molded splices in the circuit at the junction block and battery to starter circuit.
Other things it MIGHT be are the ignition switch, located on top of the steering column:

The other thing it MIGHT be is a faulty ignition cylinder (where your key goes into to start the K10).

Check the wire harness on the steering column also.

SOURCE: 79 model chevy truck starter solenoid does not click!

you may need to check your exciter wire. If you ndo not have power going through that wire, the ignition switch itself may be bad.

SOURCE: 1988 chevy k2500 heater works but no defroster

If the floor ducts and the dashboard ducts work it would indicate a problem with the blend door that redirects the flow of air from the lower sections to the defrost. It could be because of a vacuum leak or a problem with the tube going to the blend motor. Can you hear a slight hiss in the dash with the engine running? Has a sound system been installed or any other work done in the dash recently?

I have a 1981 Chevy k20 350. I am having problems with not starting let alone cranking over. I have a brand new starter n battery in it now. When I turn the switch over I can hear a clicking sound coming...


The ign switch has a wire that goes to the small post on the starter.. if this wire is not connected the starter will not turn the engine.. likewise.. if your ign switch is not sending a electric to this post same problem.. You might also have a burnt "Fuseable Link".. or a bad ign switch.. yoiu can try jumping across the large battery cable connection and the small starter post.. this will tell you the problem is not in the starter..block the wheels. e brake on and truck in Park or nutural.. another thing there might be a nutural saftey switch if its an automatic.. or a clutch switch if its a manual trans.. I do not think your truck has a starter relay.. do not know what is clicking.. Post a comment here when you find out what is wrong.. it helps everyone..

I have a 1988 2wd pickup and the starter won't


starter wont turn or engages the flext plate,flywheel and still wont turn engine over?if this is the case you have a seized up motor,but if it doesnt even click check signal wire from ignition switch for power when you turn the key to crank.if no power your ignition switch,park/neutral safety switch(clutch switch if manual trans) or wrongly installed wired could be the problem.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and it won't start. Just keeps clicking and won't turn over. I need some help please. Thanks


use test light, connect clip on grnd. , touch tip on the starter wire while turning key , if it lights starter is faulty , no light, solenoid is faulty, if it lights and indicates starter is cause you can try to gently tap starter with plastic handle of screwdriver if tapping gets it moving then brushes in starter are dirty or near worn out hope this helps

Intermittent starter won't engage on mercrusier7.4 1988 boat engine


might be a burned spot on the starter contacts where the brushes power the motor.
tap the starter to see if problem goes away.
sometimes you can clean the contacts but that is a temporary fix.

I have a 94 chevy g20 van w a 350 when I turn the key there's nothing not even a click. I can get the starter to turn underneith with a screw driver but it won't engage just free spins


Assuming you have a good battery there is a small wire that goes to the battery terminal on the starter (big red wire) That is where you get power to ignition switch. this is a fusable link wire If you pull on it slightly and it streches it is burned into.Resist the urge to replace it with a non fuseable wire, it is at any parts store

My 1988 chevy truck won,t start.I put new battery clamps on .I charged the battery . I put new ground wire negative to body. all I GET is a click.what should I do next?


I would have the starter tested. Also check to see if the motor is turning freely, by turning the crankshaft pulley, just to make sure the motor isn't locked up.

1989 Chevy K2500 350 will not restart after warmed up? I have replaced Heads, reset timing 0 TDC new plugs, coil, cap, button, module and pick up coil. Engine starts cold runs great but will not restart...


tdc is usually set at 8 degrees BTDC for an automatic and 4 BTDC for a manual transmission. This may help. Does the engine run rough at start up being set at 0TDC?

My 1988 4x4 3/4 ton chevy long box with a 350 engine wont start i have power to the dash but the starter wont click or turn over but when i put a screwdriver across the starter it spins but wont kick in to...


If when you jump the starter with a screwdriver & it spins without engaging the flywheel - I would say with reasonable confidence that the starter is bad..

Hope this helps !!
Please rate me good ;o)
