A Chilton or Haynes manual will locate the link, and maybe give some hints about what took it out. Get a couple of spares in case the problem returns.

SOURCE: reversed jumper cables, blown fusible link?

Turn the key to run,truck in park,and jump the starter from the small wire to the large wire on the starter solinoid.If it starts,all is good and your fussible link is probably right.The fusable links are located in the engine compartment,under a cover on the firewall.

What does fusible shortage affect


A fusible link is a short piece of insulated low-voltage cable within an automotive wiring harness that is designed to protect the harness in applications where a fuse is unsuitable. In an extreme current overload situation, the conductor within the link is melted while the ensuing flame and spark is contained within the link's insulation.

Fusible links are not rated in amps like fuses because each installation is unique and designed to meet specific circuit protection requirements.

The automotive service industry recommends using the same gauge and length as the blown fusible link after the cause of failure is corrected.

Typically, a given harness segment is protected by a fusible link that is four gauge numbers smaller. A 14-gauge wire would be protected by an 18-gauge fusible link. A 6-gauge wire would be protected by a 10-gauge link, and so on. Odd number wire gauge sizes like 19, 15, 13 and 11 are counted when sizing a link. The length of a fusible link should not exceed 9".

In general, a fusible link should never be used to replace an automotive fuse unless authorized by a vehicle factory service bulletin. Likewise, never replace a fusible link with an automotive fuse.

Fusible links are used in most starting circuit applications. For more technical info on fusible links, visit www.sae.org

What amperage is the fusible link at the fuel pump harness on a 2009 Hyundia Sonata


The dealer or a parts store (if they can order it) would know the necessary rating of the fusible link-the color code may also tell the correct amperage and gauge. If possible, might help if you take it with you when ordering a new one. Fusible links are cut out and replaced.

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.

1993 Gmc Sonoma 4wd 4.3 v6 My fusible link is broken no one seems to carry this part about 4 inches from alternator on fusible link are 2 black soup can lookin things on link wires I was told I can replace...


Fusible link should be available at any full service Auto Parts supply available on a roll which you purchase by the inch. Do not replace the fusible link with a piece of #10 stranded wire. Have you checked with your local GM garage for this link?

You say the fusible link is rated @ 20 amp's @ 12 V dc, I would suggest you could put a auto-resetting 20 amp @ 12 V dc circuit breaker in its place but not a wire.

Fusible link rarely "blows". I think you should find the cause before you go much further.

I reversed the cables on battery and now the truck will not start


Look for a blown fuse,or fusible links to be burned out,these fusible links will bolt onto the starter with the positive cable,I do not know what year it is,but if it is a newer model,there is a fuse on the rail,on passengers side,near the radiator,it will be a flat fuse with two mounting bolts on each side of it,150 amp,or 200 amp,or lower,disconnect the battery before replacing it.

If the fusable link at the starter is broken


if just the starter fusible link is burned then you should have power to and from the switch, and also power before but not after the fusible link itself. if this is the case you may actually have a bad starter. fusible links burn out for a reason. of course, you'd have to replace the burned fusible link as well.

Need help replacing fusible link connector


It doesn't matter because they all carry +12V to the respective circuits. What does matter is which fusible link goes to which circuit (assuming they are different) but if you didn't cut them off, then they should still be connected to the correct circuits.

Fusible link 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE


Jeep got rid of Fusible links by 1999. All the fuses that in the past would be Fusible Links are now in the Power Distribution Center in the engine, as Maxi-Fuses. However you could have an after market modification that would include a Fusible Link. That said, make sure you have a good charge on the battery before starting, it doesn't seem like a big deal....but it could make a difference.
