Burned the in line fuse on my expedition.

I let my teenager try to replace the battery in my expedition and he hooked put the battery leads on the wrong terminals long enough to burn out 2 wires that are protected by a cover that says in line fuse and now my radio doesnt power up at. Every thing else in the truck still works just need to know how to replace that in line fuse. Can I just cut open and splice a new fuce in or what. If there is manual please let me know the name or if I can just cut and splice that would be col. Or if they sell a in line fuse at like auto zone or some thing. Thanks

    Just got done looking at in line fuses on the net and none of them look like what is in my truck. I can nt just by the fuse straight or bladed and replace it. Mine just looks like 2 separate wire with a long snap together plastic cover. Wires look to be hard wired from positive battery lead and run off some where into the fire wall I assume the radio since it is the only component that does not work any more. It is a stock radio but I do have a after market alarm installed but the alarm still works. Thanks

How do I hook up my subwoofer and amp to my ford f150?

to hook up the amp. drill a hole in the firewall, run an 8 or greater gauge cable (greater, depending on the wattage of the subwoofer amplifier) from the battery positive lead, thru the firewall, to the amp power +, and be sure to place an in line fuse within the engine compartment, within a foot of the battery. hook the speaker up, and then run the amplifier negative lead to a bare metal part of the cars chasss, and, finally, hook the amplifier remote power lead to the acc circuit of the interior fusebox (i usually just take the acc fuse out, stick the wire in the acc fuse receptacle, then re-insert the fuse to complete the circuit).

to run the radio signal to the amp, you can use a speaker to line level converter (if stock stereo). just splice them into the stock stereo speaker leads

Battery not getting charged although the alterator is putting out.truck will run but kills battery after its been charged with a is my email.

Does it die while running? Check the voltage at the battery with the truck running to see if it is getting the same voltage that the alternator is putting out. Will it not start after sitting for a bit? It could just be a bad battery not taking a charge because the lead plates or the terminal inside the battery is broken. You may also have a drain on the battery that is discharging it. You can check for a drain by disconnecting the negative cable and hooking a test light in line between th negative battery terminal and the cable. If the test light lights up bright, there is a drain and you can start pulling fuses one at a time to see what kills the light.

Battery was going bad so my son tried to help me jump start it but he connected the leads the wrong way(positive to negative) and the horn was blaring and took me a few seconds to figure out what he had...

It can be worse if the fuse at the main link is not blown out. so check to trace into the main line, the ignition circuit. check the main fuse box and the inside compartment fuse box.
You will be lucky if any electronic circuit is not burned out specially the ECM.
Must try to use a good tester to trace and check before the battery is connected.
