About two months ago I bypassed the fusable link on my V6 engine. Everything was fine then. This morning I get in and nothing. I have already replaced solenoid, key cylinder, ignition switch on steering column.

How old is the battery & have you tested it? How is it that a month went by & your using any vehicle that could let you down? Why have all issues not been resolved ,as soon as they started? Have you checked for codes? Have you had a professional scan tool on it & checked data,that has to be done along with many other checks or tests,unless it's just a battery issue. No one can solve any vehicle issue over the internet There is always more to the story & you need the patient
Hello, Yes it sounds as if it is a computer problem. There is no way to bypass it you will have to replace the engine computer. Good luck and feel free to ask anymore questions about this and I will do my best to answer them.
Check the wire leading to the solenoid with an ohm meter. It has a fusable link which may have blown out. The link is inside the wire itself spliced in. If blown replacements can be purchased at any auto parts store and crimped on
There are fusable links that are inline to the battery positive cable. Make sure you have good connections or an open connection in the feed wire. It may have been broken upon installation. Question.,.did you install the negative cable first before the positive cable? If so it can short out a fusable link
Sounds like you have a vacuum leak, a problem with the wiring, or a bad PCM. Check wiring for pinched, chafed, pierced, or broken wires. Make sure vacuum supply is good, and not collapsing when the vehicle is running. Beyond that, a trip to the dealer may be in order.
sounds like the fusable link which feeds power to the ignition switch has gone to the happy hunting ground. this fusable link is bolted to the starter motor battery terminal along with up to four others.
It sounds like you may have a bad alternator, when your jumpers are hooked up, it has proper juice to run the accessories, but when you disconnect the jumpers the car is running on what little juice the battery has. The engine moving around, yes it very well may be the mounts, but that would not cause it to die like it is. When you step on your brake petal, it iluminates the brake lights, taking more juice from the battery. If you remove the alternator and bring it to any advance auto or autozone, they can test it for you for free, to tell if it needs replacing or not. Also check the fusable link located in the fuse compartment under the hood, and make sure that's good.
Hope this helps!
