Fuselink Receptacle on a 2 wheel drive 1988 pickup

I have blown the fuse and melted the fuselink receptacle on my 1988 toyota pick up. It is located on the panel under the hood on the passenger side. It's the receptacle that has 4 little posts on it with brass screws. One of these posts gets the hot red wire from the battery. I have pulled out the receptacle out of the holder but have not detached any wires. I need to get the exact same fuselink receptacle. I checked for any part numbers on it - none there. It just pulled out of the junction box. I will not take any wires off their posts until I get a new receptacle and a new fuselink. How do I find one ? I went to auto wreckers and a newer toyota truck was totally different at the junction box. If you could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

you can email me at [email protected]

thanks David

Well theirs tw ways you can do this.. clip each wire one at a time and wire them direct to each other.. or tke the main power suply wire and wire a fuse link in ..then hook all the other up direct.. and just omit the fuse box or juction box..a little bit of brain work and you can do it n\maybe with male and femal connectors..

88 toyota pick up v6 keeps blowing efi fuse

you may have a short of some kind, when a fuse blows repeatedly it is no good just replacing, you are being told that something is wrong with the equipment.
You will almost certainly have to visit a technician for a diagnosis. It is unlikely to be something that an inexperienced end user can sort out I am afraid.

Where is the fuselink ona 1994chevys10 pick up,,,,PLEASE

Your fuse box is inside , lower left kick panel , check all fuses in there , then also in the engine compartment on the firewall around the middle is a junction block with like 2 fusible links , they need to be tested , and also 1fusible link right off the positive side of the battery , test it also , if you don't have a test light for testing , you can kinda wiggle the fusible links and feel if they are limp and stretchy , that's not a good sign , you can buy replacement fusible links or fusible link wire from local parts store , depending on how much sparking happened you may have blown the fusible links . if you don't have a test light , pick one up at the parts house and learn to use it , it will be invaluable when it comes to testing this kinda of failure .

Where is the horn relay located on the 1988 Toyota pick-up?

Toyota does not use a relay for horn operation. Power to the horn is provided by the 15 amp Haz-Horn fuse. The horn operation is controlled by ground through the horn switch (button) on the steering wheel.

Get no power when turning the ignition key on 1987 monte carlo after replacing starter

The battery power is routed through the starter on your car. If your starter connections are wrong or you blew a fuselink while changing the starter, you will get no power at the ignition switch. Double check your starter connections and test also for a blown fuselink.

I have an 89 toyota pickup, and the other day the battery light came on and the radio and heater wouldn't work. once i shut it off it wouldn't start anymore. I checked the fuses and one of the fuselinks...

You probably have a direct short on one of your high current electrical lines. I would check connections at the battery, alternator, and starter.

Let me know what you find out.
