If you are referring to the large wire about 1.5" long. Your answer is yes. It is the main Fusible link wire that protects your system. Just replace with a new fusible link wire and it should supply the needed current to complete the circuit to start vehicle. Hope this helps and have a great day.

My 97 Sonoma starts, doesn't start. It jumps easily. When I turn the key, I get nothing - no dashboard lights, no engine crank.

Do the dash lights come on with the jumper cables? Did someone connect the jumper cables backwards? Sounds like a main fuse blown. Check the plastic fuse box under the hood near the battery on top of the inner fender. All power to the truck begins there. Check for large fuses 30 amp to 60amp. check everything in that box, relays too.

Something fried underneath my hood of my 1989 dodge d150 and now i have no gauges, radio, and it wont attempt to start

If it was under the hood - you could have a short somewhere that is causing this or it's your relay. If you're battery checks out good - but nothing take a look for this box under the hood. It shouldn't be hard to find. If you follow the main wiring harness coming from the firewall back towards the front of the car you'll see it. Usually positioned middle above one of the fenders to the back towards the passenger compartment is where they usually put them. This junction is the relay center. It controls the fuel pump, turn signals, wipers, starter relay, you name it. You'll have a smaller fuse panel inside the passenger compartment - this is the main hub before that one. If you take a look at it - try to see if the box is burnt or the relays are burnt. You'll definitely be able to see. If you give the immediate area of that box a good smell and it's burnt - you can't miss it.

Won't start. Replaced battery. Still not working. No power at all. No interior lights on dash board, no interior lights. When ignition is turned nothing happens. HELP!

I would first check to see if the negative battery cable is grounded. Connect a jumper from the NEGATIVE side of the battery to the frame and check for power. The more likely cause is the main fuse in the fuse box under the hood . The box should be in the left front and the fuse should be labeled 100 or 120 amp. It may require removing the entire box to get it out as it may be bolted in.

I check the fuse and the horn is not working

Check in your owner's manual for the location of the horn relay. It will usually look like a small metal or plastic box that plugs into either the main fuse box or the high amp fuse box under the hood. If your horn fuse is good then most likely the horn relay needs replaced.

Clicking noise under hood of 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Sounds like you have a dead battery. You either need a jump start with jumper box or clean battery terminals and see if that works

Jump Started, Now More Problems

If you are lucky, it probably burnt a/or some fuses somewhere (probably higher amperage fuses, or a Maxi fuse (large fuse), or it might have burnt a fusible link (which looks like a normal wire and varies on locations depending on vehicles but is designed to melt and prevent current flow in the event of a current overload)

But, you also might have fried some electronic modules...

Only thing that works is brake lights, radio, and headlights

look under the hood where the battery is . theres a fuse box there.there should be a red 45 amp clear fuse. look and see if that is burnt out.
