No headlights, nothing anywhere? That could be failed fusible links, if not just bad, corroded connections on the battery. Also check battery grounds.
Fusible links are the major power distributors on older vehicles. One could be for the headlights and exterior lights, another could be for ignition switch power. The links would connect to positive battery power. Look for them attached to the positive cable on the starter relay on the passenger fender well. Fusible links work like fuses, designed to burn out if too much current goes through, that to protect the rest of the wiring in the circuits they supply power to.

Check the main fuses. Should be high amperage, large fuses.

I have a 1985 F150 that keeps using up Starter Solenoids. Can I get a more powerful solenoid or is there another problem that is causing this?


There is no power to a solenoid. The small ignition wire simply energizes a plunger so there is contact between the larger battery cables. (assuming that is still the remote mounted solenoid. Still basically the same thing with a starter mounted solenoid).
A weak battery can kill a starter/solenoid. Have it tested.
If you can get your hands on an inductive type ammeter you can also check on the current draw of the starter. Testing a starter on a bench when its free and not turning a motor does not much good.
Also make sure you have good power to the small wire that energizes the solenoid. Normally it should not drop bellow 10 volts while cranking. If it is then perhaps your ignition switch has some resistance.

Hello, I have a 1987 Ford f150 with a 5.0 engine, I did a stupid thing of crossing the wires on the battery to boast it off resulting in burning the fuse link up. I have replace the fuse link, alternator...


Hi, some models may have an external regulator. Check with your local parts chain to verify you do not have an external regulator. If you do, it is probably fried.

locate your fusible link wires leading from your battery the and the electrical harness, you may not be getting the accessory power to your key switch and this is supplied via this fuse wire located near the battery
