Hi :) The fusible links are on the wires coming from the solenoid fallow the battery leads down to the solenoid and you will find them they look like wires with large moulded rubber hoses on a colour coded wire the wire inside is a fuse that blows before the amps get to high.

    i found it now when i turn the key the fuel pumps kick on and also the starter relay clicks but will not turn motor over. If i jump it from the solenoid it turns over and is getting spark to the coil and plugs and also back fires every other time. ive got power everywhere. what to do next!?

    Hi :) Fords have a bad problem with green corrosion on the wiring connections.Check the timing and the spark module on the distributor and check the starter wires for corrosion and the computer module on the front drivers side fender firewall area.

Check the fusable links in the wire harness where it runs behind the battery. Find the bugle in the wire and check for power on either side of it. Sometimes these just corrode instead of shorting out. This will also kill your tail lights too.

Fusable Link


When a fusable link burns, it is an indication of a dead short to ground. With that said you have to find the short to repair the problem. This can be tedious and time consuming. A wiring diagram for that circut will be an asset. Wish you success in finding the problem. PS Has the radio been replaced lately? I will check back on the 14th.

No head, tail, dashboard lights or clock - fuses & bulbs are good


There is a few fusable links that power that stuff. Did the fuses blow or they no longer have power to them. If the fusable link doesnt blow and there is a short then it will take out all your fuses. I had a fuseable link go and it killed everything.

Sounds like you are not getting ignition power. Have you checked all the fusable links under the hood? Could be an ignition switch as well.
