Question about Plymouth Voyager
How to repair burnt fusable link? My 93 Grand Voyager suddenly stopped in the middle of an intersection and I was able to coast to the side of corner on the opposite side.
The instrument panel lights went out. The radio which was on went dead. I called the AAA and while waiting for them,I inspected all the fuses and they seemed to be okay. My daughter said she smelled a burnt smell. I opened the hood and checked and didn't find anything obvious that could cause that smell. The tow truck driver checked the problem and felt that the battery was good at 13.3 volts. He had me do the ignition thing and before checking the battery had tried to jump cable the engine. The interior lights could be turned on by using the dimmer switch.
I later checked out the situation at home where the minivan was towed to and found a wire that had a couple of tiny holes that were black on the red insulated wire located on the top portion of a thick bundle of insulated wires leading from the engine compartment to the driver's side. There was a nearby plastic item that had some black carbon deposits. I felt the wire and there was a gap of about an inch of missing wire between the two pieces of wire that still remained insulated. I read Hayes and Chilton manual for the Grand Voyager and felt that the electrical diagrams needed more information for the 1993 model. I read elsewhere on the web that I could check Mitchell manual at the library for more detailed electrical diagram. I just needed some advice on how to go about solving this situation. I already went to NAPA to get the part of the same wire gauge fusable link and the connectors as well. Would appreciate some advice.
Went to the library to look at Mitchell manual & other manuals. Could not find the solution. Went to Dodge dealership in town to parts department. They identified the red 14 guage wire and said that they could order the part but it would take 5 working days and $15 for three fusable link wires. He referred me to Kragen and Carquest to get the part. Kragen had none but Carquest had GM black 14 gauge fusable link but no red. Was told that GM is black, Chrysler is red, and Ford is green. He also gave me an 800 number to call Chrysler for a wiring diagram.
I have a 1995 Ford F150 I cannot get any spark. I am thinking the problem is in the ignition system. I am also thinking it may be the fusable link, but am not sure where to locate it. Any suggestions?

You can replace the wires with similer gauge and using the capsule type fuse holders and fuse rated as the stock unit. this makes it easy for repears next time seeing that its only the fuse you would be looking for this time
