Question about Ford Festiva

1 Answer

93 festiva stopped on road found a blown fusible link in engine compartment and replaced it. Now I keep blowing the thirty amp fuse to the seat belts. No doubt there's a short. Where is the most likely location of it? Or is there some other factor?

Hi..
On your for Festiva. The seat belts don't use a 30amp. fuse.

Why you don't check the RAD FAN.
But on the Fuse box Is there a Location Number for the fuse.
If you give me the LOcation number of the Fuse. and the fuse outside or inside , I will give the axacttly information for that fuse....

Hope you will give me .

Where is the drivers power seat fuse located


If the fuse is blown, what are you going to do? Replace it so ANOTHER fuse can blow? Blown fuses do not cause electrical failures, electrical failures cause blown fuses.

With that said, I do not have access to the information you are asking for anyway. Magna was never built, imported, or sold in the United States. I only have access to service information for those that are.

Our Aussie friend Magna, is however, very similar to the Mitzubishi Galant that is sold here. Galant's seats are powered by a 30 Amp fusible link located in the underhood fuse block. It provides power to Pin #1 at the seat switch (BLUE WIRE - HOT AT ALL TIMES). I think Magna would be similar.

I put my battery in wrong in my 95 avalon now nothing happens when I trun the key, whats wrong?


It all depends on how lucky you are today. Connecting the battery backwards can destroy some high-dollar stuff. If you are really lucky, you will only have a blown fuse (or fuses). Check both of your main fuse blocks on the left side of the engine compartment,
One of the boxes is called the "Fusible Link" box and the other is called the "Engine Compartment Junction Block" (J/B) (See picture below).
Your main circuits are protected by the 40 Amp and 80 Amp fusible links in the Fusible Link box and the 120 Amp Alternator Fuse in the Junction Block. You will most likely find one or more of these fuses/fusible links blown.

I had to replace my alt.on my 93 ford festiva abd when i hit the wire to the frame it sparked so I disconnected the battery cable, but when I hooked the cable back up the fusible link cought fire, I blew...


Pull the remnants of the fusible link out with a small pair of pliers. The ends are a standard blade type plug. Replace the link with a 40 amp cartridge type fuse. The "long leg" type is plug and play. You probably just stressed the fusible link meaning it did its job. My bet is that you pop in the cartridge fuse and you will be good to go. I run these in all of my festivas. So do hundreds of people on fordfestiva.com. It is THE place for all things festiva. There are thousands of knowledgable helpful members there.

1984 Chevy 350 has two fusible links,one foe ignition the other for headlights which is blown. Can I replace with a blade fuse and what amperage is equal to the wire gauge that is on the original?


Fusible links work much differently than blade fuses, they can tolerate a large load without melting, this is why they are used for high amp draw systems. You can't substitute the blade fuses, they will blow repeatedly if you do. Fusible links are very cheap and all auto parts stores have them, they go by color to indicate what the amp rating is, wire gauge is not used. So the bottom line hear is you can use blade fuses but they will likely blow often, you will need fusible links (Green) or 30 or 20 amp fuses. Here is the color breakdown of all fusible links.
BLACK 45A
RED 35A
GREEN 30A
BROWN 20A

96 buick century - lights/brake lights/dome lights, etc not working. have tried replacing several fuses and a circuit breaker in fuse box in glove compartment. is there another fuse box under the hood?...


Check fusible links coming off of the starter, with the battery disconnected.

Pull on the various colored wires that have a barrel of foam on them about 1/2" to 2/3" long that indicated that the wire is a fusible link.

If a fusible link stretches, the inside of it is blown. Many circuits can be controlled by the fusible links.

REPLACEMENT

Fuses protect all the major electrical systems in the car. In case of an
electrical overload, the fuse melts, breaking the circuit and stopping the flow
of electricity.
If a fuse blows, the cause should be investigated and corrected before the
installation of a new fuse. This, however, is easier to say than to do. Because
each fuse protects a limited number of components, your job is narrowed down
somewhat.





Fig. 1: Fuses come in different colors which indicate different
amperage ratings

The amperage of each fuse and the circuit it protects are marked on the fuse
box, which is located under the left side (driver's side) of the instrument
panel and pulls down for easy access. To replace a fuse, simply pull it from the
panel. Insert a new (same amp rating) fuse in its place.

1990 ford festiva no power to fuel pump. replaced relays , fuel pump, checked safety shutoff. nothing .. ran hot wire to fuel pump and pump worked but car still not trying to start. got spark. now what


The pump should have a fuse in the fuse block. You need to check for power in the fuse block and you need to check power to the pump relay.

Sometimes there is a fusible link to the Relay. If you check the connector terminals for power where the Relay plugs in, you can determine if the fusible link has blown. You could have already replaced the bad parts and now need to restore power to the Relay.

I need a 1988 honda prelude under hood fuse diaphagram


The closest I got to a diagram was this, but it doesn't have the legend for each maxi fuse under the hood: REPLACEMENT
  1. Remove the fuse and relay box cover.
  2. Inspect the fusible links to determine which is faulty.
  3. Unplug and discard the fusible link. Fig. 1: The engine compartment relay box contains the maxi-fuses 93136p69.jpg

  4. Inspect the box terminals and clean if corroded. If any terminals are damaged, replace the terminals.
  5. Plug in a new fusible link of the same amperage rating. WARNING
    Never exceed the amperage rating of a blown maxi-fuse. If the replacement fuse also blows, check for a problem in the circuit(s).
  6. Check for proper operation of the affected circuit(s).

My pacifica was running fine. I stopped and turned it off then tried to start it again after 10 minutes and it would not turn over. U can not even get the starter to try and turn over


there may be a high amp fuse blown or a fusible link blown. check all fuses in the passenger compartment and under the hood. if you find no fuses bad, a fusible link is a large red cable that has a fuse in line. check the red cables leading from the battery to the starter for bulges in the line.
