A fusable link is exactly like the old fashioned household fuse. You make a fusabling link by cutting the wire and inserting a small length of wire 2 wire sizes smaller (I believe its two, don't quote me.) So if the wire is 12 gauge, put in a small length of 14 gauge. (A 14 gauge wire is small than 12 gauge) Make sure you use stranded insulated wire that is meant for cars and that you use the mechanical connectors with insulation built onto them (usually blue) that you attach to the wire by using a crimping tool. I think the length of the fuse should be about 1 inch to about 1.5 inches. Wrap it with plenty of black electrician's tape. If the fuse does burn out (which you want it to if there is too much current going through the wire) the black tape will protect the wire from shorting out to the body of the car, which cause you real problems.

What causes a 1993 buick lesabre not to start after replacing the starter?

My suggestion is to make sure that you have a good connection between your starter and your battery. Is the starter even functioning? If not, it is probably a bad starter, a bad battery, a bad fusible link for the starter, a blown fuse, or just a bad connection.

Why does battery light stay on after replacing the alternator?

There should be 12 volts or close to it at the alternator b+ terminal. Possibly a wiring problem,fried fusible link wire or a blown fuse depending on vehicle make and model. Check for blown fuses or check at the starter solenoid for fried fusible link wiring. Some makes ,the PCM computer regulates the voltage...possible PCM problem,again depending on vehicle make..... You didnt specify what kind of vehicle this is...Year,make,model,engine size.... Doc J


What is wrong when after you changed your starter in 1996 cavalier with 2.4L that makes battery drain while car is running?

So, what you're saying is that your car isn't charging the battery since you changed the starter... is that right. If so, my guess is that you accidently left off or possibly even burned out the fusible link between the battery cable and the alternator. If this is the case, that's why it won't charge. So, make sure yoiu've still got a connection between the wire between your battery cable at the starter and the alternator.

Why is the power not going back into the battery from the alternator?

Alternator output fuse or fusible link under the hood, I can't believe the people that don't state make, model, year and engine size before posting a question.

No


Will a fusible link make a engine stall?

A fusible link is the same as a fuse in that it is to protect an electrical circuit. It will not cause a car to stall. Check the throttle plate and be sure it is clean.

What would cause the fusible link on a 2001 Toyota Solara to burn out?

Any time a fuse link burns out one should suspect a LARGE short condition in the harness. Shut off all accessories and pull all fuses from the fuse panel. Take NOTES or replacement will be a pain. Disconnect battery if connected, Use a DVM and check the resistance of each accessory at the fuse side to ground. A low or zero ohm condition indicates trouble in that circuit. Also check from the alternator B+ to the alternator body. A low reading here would make one suspect the alternator has an internal short. Also check for a failed/shorted starter cable or starter.


Your 96 Ford Escort will not turn over No noise the battery is good What is wrong?

Check the thick negative wire going from the battery to the body and the engine block and make sure it is securely attached. The thick positive wire from the battery is a fusible link. Check there is 12v at the starter motor end. If no volts, change whole wire for a new fusible link from a motor factor.

Do alternator your make the car start?

No, your battery supplies power to the starter. However if your alternator is defective then it will not supply power to the battery and the battery will soon be depleted.
