How do i check to see if my fusible link is any good in my 1988 oldsmobile royale 88


If you are mechanically inclined, check for power at the starter when turning key to start. Where is your fusible link attached ? Try by passing starter solenoid, if engine turns over, you may have a bad starter.

Have nothing working no lights battery aint getting power Good wires ,good alternator,battery lights used to turn on


Sometimes there is a fusible link in the hot lead to the battery. Check shop manual to see if there is one. Otherwise, look for bulge somewhere close to the hot battery connector. Look for fusible links elsewhere if you cant find one near battery.

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.

It would be hard to guess but a simple diagnostic would be to use a 12v test light and see if the starter solenoid recieves a 12 v signal while turning the key. If it lights, the starter should turn over. This also gives you the oportunity to check and verify all electrical connections at the starter including the large orange fusible link wire at the large battery terminal.

71 nova will not start


take a look at the wires on the top of your starter,

there should be a big main battery cable there, a small start wire, and a couple of fusible links.

the fusible links provide power to the rest of the vehicle, they are designed to fail if there is a short in the system, you can purchase fusible link at your local parts house it comes in a small roll, do not use regular wire for the repair you need the fire protection offered by the special link.

Battery is good. clicking sound when trying to start engine


Going to sound like a dumb answer but try removing the spark plugs and then see if it turns, or if water comes out of any plug hole. disable your ignition so spark can't cause a fire. Then tell me what you find...
