Fusible link usually powers a section of vehicle, or a portion of fuseblock. Check your connections at starter. There should be the large batt. cable, and a couple smaller wires bolted together. Also check tightness & condition at battery end. If there were any fusible links (section of wire that melts when overloaded) they would be down at starter...

Testimonial: "Im aware of what a fusible link is ,i just wantedto know it this vehicle has them. There is no power to the start relay so bypassing it activates the starter but still no power to the ignition. Yes I do have a volt meter and turned the ignition on to check voltage etc. Thanks anyway."

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

I can hear the fuel pump running, lights are on, but won't start the car.


First make sure you have good battery connections. A poor connection will give enough power to turn on head lights but not turn on starter motor. Clean the connections and ensure they are tightened.

If connections are good, check voltage of battery. It should be at least 12 volts.

If battery voltage is low, either charge the battery, or attempt to jump start the car (red to positive terminals, black to negative terminals; attached positive first, prefer to attach negative terminal to a good metal location other than the negative terminal on the battery).

If the starter motor is visible, try tapping lightly with a mallet to free it up. This may or may not work depending on the problem. If the car starts, replace the starter motor anyway or it will strand you again.

Most cars have a starter relay and a fuse for the ignition. Do a Google search on the internet for your model of car, or look in your owners manual to find the location of the solenoid and/or fuse. Replace the fuse if it's burned out. Note that a shorted starter motor could cause the fuse to burn out, so replacing the fuse may not fix the problem. Suspect a shorted starter motor or wire if the fuse burns out again. You may need some professional assistance at this point to check the solenoid.

If the solenoid is bad, it is usually replaced along with the starter. Remove starter motor/solenoid and take to an Autozone or Oreilly or equivalent and have them check its functionality. Be sure to disconnect the battery's negative terminal before removing the starter motor.

If the starter is good, then your problem is likely either your car's security system (check if security light is flashing if you have such) or check the ignition switch. If you have a mechanic friend, see if he can bypass the ignition switch and get the starter motor to turn over.

Poor electrical connections or a bad battery or a bad starter motor/solenoid are the most likely culprits.

97 sun fire.try too start it with key it will not do anything.if I jump the silanoid motor will rotate but not start.and for some reson the power windows stoped working.fuses are good some one has cut out...


The starter fuse is a 50 amp fuse in the engine fuse junction box, as for the ignition it is fused by a 20 amp fuse that gives power to the crank and cam sensor,restore the ignition in the proper way,the reason being you dont have spark.

Starting starter on 97 pathfinder


the solenoid is one unit with starter to verify you must check amperage draw at starter but it is a common symptom of what happens prior to starter replacement sorry

97 isuzu trooper. Starter motor has no power.


Check the battery and cables going to the starter. Weak arc? Possible that the relay needs to be rechecked now. The inertia switch may also be a possibility. Has the car been in a recent fender bender?

1999 nissan pathfinder, won't turn over.


By using a prob/test light(make sure that battery is fully charged) If not sure if battery is fully charged try boosting with jumper cables. Then try cranking if not sound like a clicking is heard check power wire at the starter check the fthick one thats bolted on to starter for constant power (should have power all the time as long as battery is connected) then with ignition on and in cranking postion(attenpt to crank)check second wire for power there should be power when key is in crank position and will go out when key is released. IF YOU GET POWER WHEN IN CRANK POSITION .. then the starter is BAD. Replace and that will fix you atrating problem. If ther is NO power from constant power wire then it coul mean a loose positive batter pole or corrosion on terminals or may be a bad fusible link, these links are on the positive battery poll. check and make sure NONE of them are burnt out/broken. This problem could also mean a bad ignition switch too or blown ignition fuse please check all fuse. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA, conatct if you need more help.
