Question about 1990 Ford Festiva
This little part under the hood that has fusible link wires as its overload system and all wiring, power runs through this has been giving me fits! The car won't start sometimes and other times it will. I've replaced the starter, alternator, battery and when I 'wiggle' the middle fusible link wire or one of the other two fusible link wires on the ignition controle box it will finally make contact and the engine will crank. Apart from this, the engine runs great. It has a newly rebuilt engine and transmission and all new parts. This ignition control module is the problem. A friend tells me that a more modern blade type fuse box system should fix my problem. A fuse box like you run power of a large home stereo system through..hmmmm?? Any suggestions on what else to do?
Try to remove fusible links from the connection, clean with aerosol electronic contact cleaner(both sides of the connection) close the female side of the connecting terminal and reconnect.
Alternatively just spray connections with above mentioned cleaner, or replace links with alternative from another vehicle that uses heavy duty fuses with same amperage rating.
Visit your local car breaker for a variety vehicles to source a suitable fuse assembly or enquire at your local (non agent) spares outlet.
