What is the fusible link from starter on 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9L "responsible" for?


A fusible link is basically a fuse built into a wire. It is designed to burn up whenever too high of an amp load is placed onto that circuit. If you have burned one up you will need to find out where the amp load came from and then replace with another fusible link of the same rating.

Had a wire arc out on 1993 Dodge ram D150 and truck stalled no there's nothing when u turn the key over


Have to check all fuses and fusible links, fuses in fuse box and fusible links are in the line. They look like the wiring except when they blow they are very soft like only the outer cover of the wire is there. Hope that makes sense to you. Good luck.

2014 dodge ram 3500 headlights work but nothing else.. no horn no start no crank


I believe most vehicles have fusible links which supply the fuse block, but that the headlamps are supplied through a different link. Kind of surprising if a 2014 truck has blown a fusible link though, so more likely there is some security system cutting power. Under warranty?

1996dodge ram 4x4 won't start it clicks I thought it was battery but I got a jump and it started I turned car off now all lights come on it clicks won't start


Porbably need a new battery. Get another jump and drive to Autozone - or similar place (leave it running) and ask for a battery load test and charging system test. They can do this while everything is in vehicle and they will tell you what is needed.

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

Where is the fusible link for 1999 dodge ram


I know that fusible links on GM cars come directly off of the starter positive terminal. They can be identified by looking for a cylindrical (3/4" long by 1/2" in diameter) barrel of plastic on a colored piece of wire. If the technician pulls on a fusible link which is about 8" long (replacement), then the wire insulation will stretch by about 1" to 3" indicating the wire inside has broken.

I looked up fusible link on the 1999 Dodge Ram and came up with this information which is a little bit different as far as form factor:

Fusible Links Removal & Installation All Engines To Remove:
NOTE: If a generator cartridge fuse fails, be certain to inspect and test the vehicle charging system before replacing the cartridge fuse and returning the vehicle to service.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • The negative battery cable
    • The cover from the Power Distribution Center (PDC)
    • The two screws securing the generator cartridge fuse to the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • The generator cartridge fuse from the PDC
To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • The generator cartridge fuse onto the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • The two screws securing the generator cartridge fuse to the two B(+) terminal stud bus bars within the PDC
    • Tighten the screws
      1. Torque to: 30 in. lbs. (3.4 Nm)
      NOTE: Ensure that both screws are tightened to the proper torque values.
    • The cover onto the PDC
    • The negative battery cable

The AC fuse blows when I turn on the AC switch. It does not blow when the compressor is un-plugged. There seems to be a fusible link or something in the pigtail connector of the compressor that has...


I would investigate the fusible link to see if it is intact. Sounds like a problem with the A/C clutch or compressor drawing too much current, which blows the fuse. It would be a open, not a short, unless the wire has power and is touching ground.
