What you propose would not generally be advisable. The reason is that what you intend is construed as an add-on, for which the fuse panel harness is not equipped. If you take into account the wire sizing which has been kept to a minimum for carrying the anticipated loads for which the system is designed, then any added draw upon the circuitry would need to be kept at a minimum to stay within limits. It would be more prudent to equip the load you propose with a relay which served as a switch for your componentry, and powered the pull-in windings of that through the panel. Such an arrangement would draw far less than the load of the devices you power, causing less of a load upon the original wiring and fuse panel. The power feed for this could be, as you say, provided with an in-line fuse to the relay for the purpose of power interruption should something happen to the feed circuitry. Your outputs would be the same as you originally intended, except for being run through the relay. That's why, and how, things like your horn are run through without the need for bigger fuses. Nobody needs a fire in the dash caused by an overloaded power feed and under-sized wiring.

Connected to the solenoid. It is the single chord connected to the bottom terminal of the solenoid and is connected to the chord coming from the alternator. A blown fusible link will cause typical bad alternator symptoms and not allow the battery to be charged by the alternator.

When replacing a three terminal starter solenoid with a 4 terminal on a 1987 Ford Ranger 2.91 how do you hook it up so it will not drain the battery?

One small terminal is labeled "S" and that is hooked up as before. The 4th small terminal is labeled "I". Leave alone as if it was not there. It goes to ignition coils on some cars, but if you did not have that before leave it disconnected. The other two large terminals are the same. George
