2004 Galant Battery Fuse... or Fusible Link

Okay... My car just recently shut down totally. However i got a jump and made it to work. Before i made it all a way to work the lights in the interior started to flicker and acted as if it wanted to cut off. So when it was time for me to go home from work. The car wouldnt turn on at all.. We put another battery in it to try to get it home.. (Lexus battery) but would start but sparked when connected the fusible link .. So we went and bought another one and connected it the opposite of the first time it also blow so now im at a lost of words... Any info is well appreciated...

So you reversed the connections and you think you nuked something? Right?

Check all fuses and relays. Replace any fuses that are blown and all relays that look scorched/burnt.
If that doesn't work, take to dealer to make sure the computer and advanced control electronics didn't get fried.

My 2004 pacifica just shut off totally while driving i have nothing no power no anything what could it be? i felt battery and it felt hot but i absolutely have nothing it just shut completely down what can...

your battery can be hot from a number of things, you have been driving a long time, needs topping up or the alternator is overcharging the battery. you would need the battery checking. if its over charging it would've blown the fusible link if you have no power at all. or the fuse in the engine fuse box. this will blow if it get to hot or overloaded. so would check these parts first

The battery is new the alternator is good but the battery is dying

Your alternator has a fusible link coming from the battery to the alternator,fuse probably is blown.The link is in a box next to the battery.

2000 Hyundai Tiburon wont start. It sat for a year without running, and upon getting it around I had it jumped. It worked for 5-10 min. but I had to leave so I shut it off. immediately after, it wouldn't...

I suspect that by jumping the dead battery, you inadvertently burned out a fusible link (not a mini-fuse) located on the under-hood fuse panel. Go to this URL:

There is a 100A fusible link (Item A on the diagram) that protects all systems. If it blows, you'll still have battery voltage, but no power will be seen anywhere else. Change the fusible link, and you should be able to close the sunroof :-)

Can't find fuse box on 2004 ford explorer.....

It would either be under dash or on side of kick panel, or behind or under glove box. Also under hood in black box on firewall.

If you find the fuse and it is good, than I would check the fusible link that runs off battery and heads to ignition system. The little black fuse inside fusible link can blow while jumping or connecting battery cables backwards.

Dead Car, possible solutions?

Not sure if the fusible link is the problem. It sounds more like you have something wrong in the electrical system. If you want to try replacing the fusible link, you can order it on line at But the problem could be as simple as a bad battery. When you turn the key, do the lights come on for your radio or guages?

Fusible link 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE

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.
