On the battery side should be the blk/org (alternator wire) and yel/blk-w/fusible link with of course the positive battery cable, On the other big terminal should be the other yellows, for your small terminal marked with an "i" should be the red/blue if it has the small terminal, if not on the big terminal opposite of the battery.

The excact location of fuseable link for 91 3.8 lt buick regal,there's only one little wire on selinoid


The two fusible links on G.M. cars used to be behind the alternator. A heavy (appx. 10 gauge) wire on the alternator had a fusible link a couple of inches back from the bolt. Pull on wire to see if the link is burned out. The other link was attached to the starter soleniod . Same test.

There can be a starter lock-out which requires your to foot press the clutch or the brake pedal. But without lights you have a different problem.

Check your fuse block for power. There is a Master link somewhere under the hood and they usually put them close to the Positive side of the battery. The Master link is like a fuse only in wire form. You will also find a heavy wire that supplies power to the fuse block. Often the fusible link and the feed wire to the fuse block are the same wires.

Your Alternator, battery, etc. will test good all day long, but you need power in the fuse block.

Turn the Ignition to ACC and notice if the radio has power or turn the key to run and notice if the Brake lights work when you press the brakes.

If you have power there, then troubleshoot the wire to the starter relay. Most likely when you turn the ignition key(start) you will not have power going to the starter relay like you should. You can also test the coil Positive wire with the key in RUN position.
It should have power.

That's all I have for you.

85 ford tempo injector curcit has no power, checked curit with nod light and did not get a power response. cloud you try to help


  • There is a fuse panel located behind the left hand side of the instrument panel. Check to see if the fuel injector fuse is good. Should the fuse look good then it is time to get out the multi meter or test light and diagnose the harness. I have put up a diagram and a description of the the points to check. Sometimes it comes down to diagnosing. Check the fuse first.

  • Fusible link C, Fusible link G, Fusible link J, Fusible link P, Fusible link R supply power to the EFI system.

  1. Fuse Link A: At LH Strut Tower.
  2. Fuse Link B: At LH Strut Tower.
  3. Fuse Link C: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  4. Fuse Link D: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  5. Fuse Link E: At LH Strut Tower.
  6. Fuse Link F: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  7. Fuse Link G: Front Of LH Strut Tower, In Tape Out To C107.
  8. Fuse Link H: At LH Strut Tower.
  9. Fuse Link J: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  10. Fuse Link P: LH Rear Of Engine Compartment, In Tape Out To C106.
  11. Fuse Link R: LH Side Of Engine Compartment, At Starter Relay.
  12. Fuse Panel: Behind LH Side Of Instrument Panel, Right Of Steering Column.

Bronco turns over but not getting fuel tank pump no noise or high pressure pump no noise 1986


Bronco V8 ?????Check for voltage at the Inertia Switch, it it has power, then the fuel pump may be bad. If no power then check the fuel pump relay and fuse. The yellow wire should have power when trying to start i tis powered from the relay which gets power from a fusible link at the starter solenoid (yellow wire, fusible link)

Need a wiring diagram/picture for the start solenoid on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L automatic. There are 2 fusible links, the positive battery cable and two other wires. 4 wirese come out of the harness...


There should be one wire with a small eyelet connector on it, this is the starter field wire from the ignition switch and it should be connected to the small terminal on the starter solenoid marked "S" (this wire is usually purple, but it can also be red or pink)

All of the other wires to the starter including any fusible links, will have a larger eyelet connector on them, and they will all connect together with the battery cable, to the large upper terminal on the starter solenoid, sometimes marked "BAT".

Turns over but not getting fuel or fire ,changed relays,fuselinks ,all started after changing starter and soleniod


Stupid question but did you look at the inertia swich on the firewall? If it gets tripped it shuts the fuel pump off and will not get gas.

Fusible Links

The engine compartment wiring harness has several fusible links. The same size wire with a special hypalon insulation must be used when replacing a fusible link.
The links are located in the following areas:
  1. A molded splice at the starter solenoid Bat terminal, a 14 gauge red wire.
  2. A 16 gauge red fusible link at the junction block to protect the unfused wiring of 12 gauge or larger wire. This link stops at the bulkhead connector.
  3. The alternator warning light and field circuitry is protected by a 20 gauge red wire fusible link used in the battery feed to voltage regular #3 terminal. The link is installed as a molded splice in the circuit at the junction block.
  4. The ammeter circuit is protected by two 20 gauge fusible links installed as molded splices in the circuit at the junction block and battery to starter circuit.
Other things it MIGHT be are the ignition switch, located on top of the steering column:

The other thing it MIGHT be is a faulty ignition cylinder (where your key goes into to start the K10).

Check the wire harness on the steering column also.
