It's called a fusible link. It goes to the fuse/relay block under the hood. It supplies power to everything, Except the starter.

I'm getting ground from the positive battery cable pulled fuse after fuse individually but my tester light stayed on.


Well it would. Everything is connected to the positive battery cable including things which are working and connected to the return (the ground). Things like the clock, the radio and the ECM are permanently connected when ignition is off.

Also from the way you connected the tester, between battery terminal and battery clamp, you are measuring amps drawn. So you are measuring the amperage drain of the things which are still connected and running.

Had to replace fuse inline alternator how can I transfer the inline fuse to a different wire


the cable /fuse to alternator has nothing to do with the start and run function if the battery is charged up and in good condition ,sounds like the main battery cables have a bad contact/connection or battery is shot<follow battery cables and remove all points of connection in engine bay area clean contacts with sandpaper and resecure all connections 1 AT A TIME! to make sure none are swapped around by mistake ) on both earth cable/negative and the positive/power cables,make sure terminals on battery are clean and tight , try boosting/jump starting your battery with jumper cables connected from another cars battery positive to positive .........negative to negative and see if it starts ,i doubt the problem of starting up is the alternator unless battery is flat and not being charged by alternator ,by jump starting with another baterry will give you the answer once all baterry cables and connections are clean and secure

Where is the main fuse on 1993 crown victoria located


Under the hood, remove fuse cover the main fuse will be in between the positive cable coming from the battery and a ground cable. Follow the positive cable coming from the battery to the fusebox and the fuse will be visible.

Ok 1994 vw passat... battery wont hold its charge.. new battery new alternator.. battery cables look old and worn.. when I turn the key sometimes there is nothing just the fourways trun on.. I then unhook...


the wires on the positive post are the large cable goes to the starter, one of the smaller wires goes to the charging circuit and the other goes to the fuse/relay power center, now how to check for a draw on your battery, first you need to remove the battery and have it charged you can take it to auto zone and they will charge it for free. after you have the battery charged hook up the negative battery cable but do not hook up the positive cable, make sure every thing is turned off and all doors and trunk are closed, then take a 12volt test light and hook it between the positive battery post and the positive battery cable if the test light lights up you have a draw, if it lights start pulling fuses one at a time till the light goes out. when you find the fuse that turns the light out you found the circuit that is drawing on the battery. now i cant tell you what in that circuit is drawing you will have to come back on and tell us what fuse it is and we can look up what all is on that circuit, if the light stays on after all fuses have been tested unhook the alternator if the light goes out you got a bad alternator......GOOD LUCK

THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.

How do i change the positive battery cable on a 2002 kia optima lx?I was able to unscrew the end that goes to the fuse box directly behind the battery but how should i rig the end that goes on the battery...


Before disconnecting the positive cable you must disconnect the ground cable first to avoid short circuit that may blow up some of the fuses.

To remove the positive cable you must have a wrench that has a size either a 12 mm or a 10 mm. just turn the wrench counter clockwise.

The other end of the cable will usually go to the starter and the alternator.

hope this one helps...
