In the Chrysler service manual on p.8W-71(top rt) sheet 14 (bottom rt) it gives you a diagram of a red wire going to the ignition switch which might be the reason that your vehicle isn't starting. I would suggest repairing that burnt wire first and seeing if there are any fuses that are blowed as a result of this...usually a bad ground will cause the voltage to decrease which in turn causes the amperage to increase which causes a lot of burning issues.

Most likely for the ignition circuit. a new link must be soldered into place.determine the cause of the short or new link will blow as well.

ON THE 2001 CHRYSLER SEBRING CONVERTIBLE DOES THE 20 AMP STARTER FUSE HAVE ANY OTHER CURRENT SOURCES OTHER THAN THE START CIRCUIT?


20A starter fuse? There is a heavy black/red wire that connects directly to the starter. The 120A FUSIBLE LINK 1 protects the charging circuit. There are two white wires that are connected to 30A FUSIBLE LINK 8. From there, power goes to the ignition switch and from the switch to the park/neutral position switch. That switch output is applied to the starter.

What guage wire for the black fusible link?


There should be 2 white wires coming from the alternator. There is a splice where it will go into 1 wire then into the fusible link. If the fusible link is not burned, simply match the gauge wire coming from it. You should never use anything smaller in diameter than 10 gauge wire for the charging system. If you want to replace the fusible link, you can run separate white wires from the alternator to the positive battery post with individual fuses or fusible links. I would recommend each wire have its own Maxi fuse holder with a fuse no less than 60 amps each.

92 wrangler wont start


Jiggle the wire connectors going in to the computer under the hood -- first check battery cables/terminal connections at battery -- beleive it or not, connection could SEEM good because you get crank & lights, but if it's faulty, loose, engine won't start - computer requires good solid voltage flow.. next check a fusible link very close to the battery off of the positive cable. check fusible link carefully. this could cause your problem for sure.

1987 ford f150 4.9 has no power to the igntion key switch. Head lamps are working. will not crank over, even when the solonoid is jumped. There is no heater fan, no radio.


Hello! In the under hood fuse and relay panel...Looking left to right...In the second row are four fusible links...Pull and check with an ohm meter (if you have one)...Some are visible as to blown or not....If you find them to be OK, there is another fusible link (this one is 14 Ga. wire...Color is Green on the end that goes to the alternator and Red on the end from the battery...This fusible link is probably open...The Green wire is spliced to a Black/Orange And Yellow/White that connect to the alternator plug...If it tuns out that the above described fusible link (Red in Green out) is burnt open it is indicating that the cause of the failure is the alternator...Or the wiring to it...Send a comment as to which fusible link is open and I'll take it from there...

You may as well check the grounding from (-) battery post to bare metal on chassis (fender bolt), firewall and engine block...Set ohm meter on X10 or X100 and read between the above described locations....Must read close to zero ohms (dead short)...Send readings...The truck has some years on it and rusted or corroded ground straps are an issue...Guru...Saailer

Where do i trace my orange/blue wire to from alternator? i have new alternator and batteries, but won't charge. will charge if i jump orange/blue to positive post. Any good suggestions? Thanks Phil


The orange/light blue wire is connected to the red (positive) wire from the battery, through a fusible link (or two links depending on engine size) to pin #3 of the voltage regulator at the alternator. The fusible link will be in the harness so you may have to disassemble the harness. The fusible link is probably blown. This was probably caused by the defective alternator/regulator assembly.

According to my diagram, it appears to go from the red batt wire to a gray 12 gauge fusible link, into a brown 18 gauge link, then turns into the orange/light blue wire and to the alternator.

(A fusible link is a piece of wire that acts like a fuse and will burn out, opening the circuit when amperage above its rating. This protects the circuit and lessens the chance of fire).

Good luck, please ask if you need more info.

I have no power to the ignition,dash,or starter.all fuses are good.could it be a circuit breaker


Look for a "fusible link" in the red wire going from the battery to the firewall or engine compartment fuse box. This is generally a smaller size wire inserted in the bigger wire, and it has molded-over connections to the larger wire. If you see a burned spot on the insulation, it's a good bet you had a major overload that fried the link. If you don't, flex the wire to be sure it bends uniformly - if it is broken, there will be a spot that bends too easily. In most vehicles the fusible link is in one of the cables running across the top of the firewall just below the windshield wipers.

If the fusible link is burned out, remove all fuses except for ECM, IGN and FUEL (i. e., strip out everything except what you need to make the engine run. Replace the fusible link with the same size and length of wire as the original. Start the engine and feel the new link to see if it is getting hot. If not, install the other fuses one at a time with all accessories turned off, and check the link each time. Make sure you are installing the correct fuse size in each location. If at some point the link starts to get hot, you have a clue as to which circuit is overloaded. Inspect the wiring on that circuit, and if any devices on that circuit are not working normally, repair them.

The fusible link may also burn out if you have an over-sized after-market audio system powered through it, crank it up while the headlights and wipers are on, then hit the brakes or honk the horn (i. e., excess total load).

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.

Fusible link keeps toasting to red with two white stripes


Check all ground associated with that wire. A good place to start is at the source that supplies that line. You may need to get a good diagram for the wiring so that you can look up the grounds that support this wire.
