Where is ignition curcuit link?

On a 1986 Chevy 20 Van.
I was R & R the alternator, putting in the new one and shorted something to ground. Now have NO ignition circuit. Manual says that circuit is on a fusible link.

Where is it?

Thanks

The fusible link comes off the starter,it is connected to the large post on the solenoid,on the starter along with the positive batter cable,if it is burned into,it will pull apart like taffy.

Chevrolet celebrity problems


fuel problems wouldnt cause electrical issues... most likely a dead ground (positive wire shorting against something metal) the only real way to find one is with a complete wire trace. I would start with anything recently installed (perhaps a stereo or amp). another good place to check is around the exhaust (these wires sometimes get to hot and ground when the coating melts away)

Have a problem with my car chevy van g20 the battery is new and the alternater the car runs all day but when the next day comes the battery is dies and i have to charge the battery help with some idea


You have something draining power that should be switched off, or a short to ground in the wiring. If you disconnect the battery it will probably still be charged in the morning.
Someone would need to pull fuses and disconnect components to find the power drain while watching the battery with a meter.

Diagram of a 2000 chevy express wiring of a starter


( one question i have is every time the ignition fuse blows do i need to replace the starter relay? ) NO ! You have a dead short to ground on one of the circuits that fuse feeds. Do you know how to find a short circuit ? Video's on youtube show how. The fuse that blows ,is it IGN - A 40 amp. located in the under hood fuse/ relay center ? That fuse feeds B+ voltage to the ignition switch ,which powers up other thing's ,fuse's etc.. Not just the starter relay ! I see five other fuse's that get power from that fuse when ignition switch is in the start or run position . In the I/P fuse panel the gauges fuse #4 10amp , air bag fuse #10 10amp , turn b/u fuse #16 20amp. , Plus trans fuse #20 10 amp ! Pull out these fuse an try to start the van. if the ignition fuse doesn't blow the problem is in one of these other fuse circuits. There is one more fuse that get's B+ power from the ignition switch and ign A fuse ,crank fuse fuse #8 10amp. this powers the control side of the starter relay .
You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine . Under system click engine , under subsystem click starting. Click the search button then the blue link.
If you pull those fuse's i mention and it still blows the fuse look for a shorted ignition switch or wiring from ignition to the starter relay , not the relay itself. Park neutral safety switch . Isolate the circuit , pull the relay out of it's socket ,pull the crank fuse #8 in the I/P fuse box. with a ohm meter check to see if that part of the circuit is shorted to ground. Do you know how to do that ? Do you have a volt ohm meter ? You can buy one cheap at parts store .

Just put a new battery in my 1986 ford f250 but after letting it sit for about 4-5 hours the battery is dead and truck has no power. What could cause this problem? I figured it could only be the Alternator...


Check the battery. Any drain that would pull 20 amphours should spark terribly when you attach the battery cable. Fully charged battery usually 80 amphours+.

The Alternator diodes could do it, a grounded starter could do it. You have a truck, but rear window defrosters could pull down a battery quickly. Stuck Relays like the fuel pump, a bad ignition switch where nothing really cuts off when the key is removed. Shorted trailer plug.

Hope my solution helps you.

Battey wont charge


may have a short somewhere but check the ground cable/ connections first, there will also be a ground from the engine block to the firewall if you cant find it attach a new one (don't use thin wire or it can melt) dosen't matter where you put it just as long as it gets a good connection at the block and firewall(no painted surfaces/use sandpaper)

Wiring problem


Check the fusible links at the starter. One of them may be burned. You mentioned that it shuts down when you turn a corner. Check the wiring going to the ignition switch under the steering column, you may have a loose wire there as well.
