Question about 1990 Ford Festiva

1 Answer

1992 Ford Festiva GL with automatic trans.--- ignition control module contact

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?

Hi!
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.
Regards
Phillip

Elecrical system is dead on 84 subaru gl


You should check the fusible links. You can find them under the hood. They are designed to melt to protect the wiring in the car from over current. They will probably be in a box.

Can't find fuse box on 2004 ford explorer.....


It would either be under dash or on side of kick panel, or behind or under glove box. Also under hood in black box on firewall.

If you find the fuse and it is good, than I would check the fusible link that runs off battery and heads to ignition system. The little black fuse inside fusible link can blow while jumping or connecting battery cables backwards.
