Fusible link insures that a short from alt or starter or which ever circuit it is connected to will not cause car to catch on fire. Direct short in circuit or component supplied by that particular fuseable link.

Kenwood ddx373bt the red light flashes won't turn on. I pressed the reset button nothing works?


Check the 10 amp fuse on the rear of the radio. As its recieving a memory live power feed but not a ignition live feed hence the flashing red light. If the fuse isnt blown you need to then check the ignition live power feed cable as its probably open circuit did you use a wiring harness adaptor?

No crank, no start, no power. Where is main fuse on 1994 chevy 1500?


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Follow one of the + battery connections, may go to a bunch of fusible links, there should be voltage on both sides of fusible link or it is faulty.
Or, pick one component that is fuse protected and doesn't work, check that fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. Some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. What is litre size of engine? Is it 4wd or 2?
One wiring diagram I looked at, had two red wires carrying voltage to ignition switch, hot all the time, if you think problem is ignition feed?

No power to ignition switch or brake lights will not start


Do you know what a fusible link is ? Coming off the starter solenoid (beside Battery cable ) are other wires . These wires are power feeds to various systems of the vehicle ,an one is to the Ignition switch .I have seen many burnt fusible links cause no power issues . Pull on the outside insulation an if it stretches the inside part is burnt in half .

I purchased a 4 terminal starter solenoid. A 3 terminal was on truck. This 4 terminal solenoid includes an S and an I terminal. Is the I terminal used on a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.9 V6 4WD?


If the truck had a three terminal one on it then you would not use the (I) terminal, nor would it cause you to keep blowing your fusible link. It would cause a hard start cold because all the (I) terminal does is feed 12v directly to the coil on cranking. You have a short in the circuit that is on that fusible link. You need to get a wiring diagram and see what that circuit feeds. If the fuel pump isn't running than disconnect that circuit and see if it keeps the link from blowing. You may have to get a circuit breaker to install temporarily it to help find short. I have used a breaker and have gone directly to the fuse box and feed there to help isolate which circuit it is in. Good luck.

Why does my truck keep blowing a fusible link


The Fuse Link That You Are Writing About Should Be Black, Going To A Red Wire. It Is On Junction Block, Not On Battery. It Feeds The Fuse Panel And The Ignition Switch. Junction Blocks Had Problems ie: Dirty and/or Loose Connections On Links.
Suggest you clean ENTIRE junction block and connections, and make sure all are SNUG--Don't Overtighten. If any won't tighten Junction Block has to be replaced. If further help needed, I have complete Wiring Diagram.

If there is no power going INTO the ignition switch, you most likely have a burned fusible link. The ignition switch gets its power from fusible link "A" It is a 16 Gauge, BLACK fusible link connected to the YELLOW wire for circuit #37. The fusible link is connected to the starter relay located on the left fender apron between the washer fluid reservoir and the strut tower.

Circuit #37splits into 3 "legs" at splice #S105. One leg of this circuit goes to the fuse block where it feeds fuse #1 (15 Amp) and fuse #2 (10 Amp).

The other two legs of this circuit BOTH go to the ignition switch. (you should have TWO large yellow wires connected to the ignition switch.)

I would have suspected the ignition switch, but it sounds like you've replaced it. It is internal to the housing you described. The first thing to do is to actually check for power at the ignition switch. There are 2 connectors going to it. One provides power, the other sends out power when key is turned. Check for good 12V at both the larger red wires, they should be battery powered and live all the time. If you have power on them then turn the key to run, you should have power on the orange wires (ignition feeds). The large yellow wire should only have power when key is in crank position. If there is not 12V at the red wires all the time then likely you have a large (maxi fuse 60A) under the hood electrical center blown. It could also be a blown fusible link coming off the starter battery post that feeds the electrical center if the fuses are good but no power across them.

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.

Car wont do anything when key is turned on.


magnetic pellet ,doesn't have one . Besides it's not a magnetic pellet . It would be a resistor pellet for the anti- theft system , which your vehicle does have . And it wouldn't be the ignition lock cylinder either if you can turn the key to the start position . Possibly the electrical part of the ignition switch . Viewing a wiring diagram for power flow and checking with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter would be the proper way to diagnose .Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click electrical distribution ,then under subsystem click on power distribution . Click the search button then the blue links . The light's work because they have seperate power supply ,looking at first diagram you will see this . Thrid diagram down is ignition switch power feed . Top right of the page you will see the letter A , that gets B+ voltage from fusible link B . Finding the ignition switch under the dash on the bottom of the steering column an testing for B+ voltage on the red wire . If B+ voltage is there fusible link is good . Fusible link B is attached at the starter solenoid .B+ stud . If there is B+ power to the ignition switch check for power from the switch .Can you figure that out ? You should also check out some videos on youtube for basic automotive electrical testing .
