check out this link

the easiest way to test your idea is to get two pieces of wire and put a fuse between them so that the fuse will take the load if there is a problem ,then check the link you suspect to be faulty first put one end of the made up wire where the link gets its power then put the other end of the madeup wire to where ever the power should be going by doing this you will bypass the fusable link as for now it will be supplied power from the new made up wire if the item works its the link if it makes no difference this is not the problem area good luck

Usualy a fuseable link that is fried will feel hard and not flexable. A continuty tester is the best way of testing it. Get a dvm volt meter.

Measure it with a meter. It is the only way to tell for sure.

good now for a quick check ...pull some in the fuseable link with your two fingers....if it streches it's shot...if it breacks looose it was making a bad connection and is bad any way....this is as quick of a test when you have just your brains to figure how to check circuits and parts. note. now what do you use to replace a fuseable link when you don't have one availaible? i know lets see if anyone else knows......

The Saturn SL2 was produced from the years 1990 to 2002 in the United States. The best way to tell if the fusible link in a 1999 Saturn SL2 is fried is that there will be no 12v.

The circuit the fusible link protects would be dead (no power).

Fusible links are generally in the harness next to the battery.

The fusible link is located on the positive battery cable for a Ford f-150. There should be a little box around the cable with the words "fusible link" on it.

If the fusible link is made into the wiring it will have to be cut out. The new link will be solidly connected, such as soldering it in, then the connections sealed form weather.

14 AWG Fusible link wire, available at any good automotive parts store.

Your local auto parts store can sell you replacement fusible link wire that you can crimp on where the old one was. You just need to know what size or bring in a piece of the old one with you.

Fusible link is installed on the hydralic line entering the actuator of the Blowdown valve. The frangible element (fusible link) will melt when exposed to a fire and cause an automatic blowdown of the exposed part of the system.

IF the fusible link has "fused" [opened up, melted apart] it will not keep the alternator from working, BUT it will prevent the battery from receiving the charge.

Probe the circuit(s) containing the fusible link(s) on both sides of link with a multimeter. You will be able to easily see whether there is continuity or not, an absence of continuity indicates a probable blown fusible link. Good luck to you!
