Fusible link 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE

Was running fine , was parked for 3 weeks and battery went flat.   Have tried jumping it but it only cranks and wont turn over.   I realized that fusible link leading from positive battery cable doesnt have a fuse in it...perhaps I knocked it out when I first tried to jump it...could that be my problem, if so, what fuse would I replace it with?
Thanks!

Jeep got rid of Fusible links by 1999. All the fuses that in the past would be Fusible Links are now in the Power Distribution Center in the engine, as Maxi-Fuses. However you could have an after market modification that would include a Fusible Link. That said, make sure you have a good charge on the battery before starting, it doesn't seem like a big deal....but it could make a difference.

Fusible link wire is a fuse in itself.
You would have to go to the auto parts store and get a replacement.
The amp. rating is stamped on the wire.

Has been running perfectly fine, drove it home this afternoon, parked on the driveway. went to drive it tonight and it won't start, it won't even turn over.


Year make and model might help a bit. Things to check for are starter, alarm, spark, fuel. Does it make any noise while cranking, does it crank. The more info you supply the better the answer

I will try to help you some here but your description is not clear. You say it cranks but wont turn over. Do you mean it clicks but wont turn over? Anyway I would check battery condition and connections. Also check starter connections and ground cables from battery to engine, frame, and body. Hope this helps you out.

My 2005 suzuki aeiro wont start.battery is good . wont turn over


what transmission,?
this can be 3 things, if it wont jump and batter is good.
bad connections at battery or starter.
1: bad starter.
2: bad (A/T shift switch) or bad M/T clutch switch.
3 bad ignition switch.
4: bad wire or connections end to and start system.

hot wire the starter solenoid, if car starts (cranks) then its 2 o 3.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

My car ran fine i parked it for about 3 to 4 months now it wont crank


Sounds like your battery went "south". Try jump starting it or charge battery and see if it holds a charge.

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery


Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

check to make sure the alternator is charging the battery.crank engine while idling the alternator out put should be 13.5 volts to 14.5 volts. if not alternator is not charging the battery.if alternator is charging battery.the battery is weak.if its over 5 years old its more likely battery.if battery not old checks out good .replace battery cables..
