    you will physically have to perform a wiring repair to replace this component. go to the dealer or an auto parts store, ask for the appropriate fuseable link and remove the old one, (cut away from the existing wire), then prceed to install the new one. This can be accomplished through the soldering method, or very large crimp connectors. Either way, make sure to use heat shrink tubing over the area that was repaired to prevent long term corrosion to the repaired area.

Put a battery on wrong on a honda civic now wont start.what coul;d be wrong?

If you put it on with the negative and positive reversed you have probably caused major damage. Have it towed and checked before doing anything else. This could have caused a multitude of problems that will only make it worse if you do manage to start it.
