Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
While charging the battery on my 66 Mustang with a 289, something happened, and I lost the entire electrical system. No starter, head light, gauges, nothing. The fuses all checks out. One thing that comes to me, is something to do with a fuse ling between the starter solonoid, or relay, next to the battery, that apparently can burn out and will cause precisely this type of problem. The advice that I seem to recall is to splice that link and then re solder it. The question is, where exactly is that link? Is it on the starter cable itself? and if so where? The only spot that I can see, is at the very end of the cable, almost at the point where it attaches to the relay, where it looks like a small firm rubber knot. Any advice would be appreciated.
Check the positive cable connection clamp at the battery. I had a similiar problem with My F150 truck. The clamp was cracked (hard to see) and was loose enough to cause the electrical system to go dead. Changed out clamp problem solved.

Well Im not positive on that old of a car but I know for sure that newer cars are that way.If it was me before I would go splicing anything I would find some wire of the same gauge and make a jumper to see if it solves the problem then go from there.
