Asked in Chevy Impala
Does a 1968 chev impala have a fuse for the ignition the car doesn't seem to be getting power to the coil?
Hello, I am fairly sure that there is no fuse as we know the definition of a 'fuse'. However, I know for certain that there is a fusible link wire from the starter solenoid battery terminal up of about 3 inches long. When it burns you lose powere to ignition, ign coil, distributor and others. REPLACE THE FUSIBLE LINK WITH ANOTHER FUSIBLE LINK AND NOT WITH A REGULAR PIECE OF WIRE. **THAT CAN LEAD TO DISASTER** Hope this helps. Israel Delgado ...
Asked in Nissan Sentra
On a 1994 Nissan Sentra 16L when the alternator was changed the battery was not disconnected the positive wire to the alternator shorted out to the chassis now there is no electric how can this be fixed?
There are several things to check for. Check the battery terminals. And there should be a wire from the positive terminal (+) directly to the alternator. There can be a fusible link. A fusible link is kind a fuse embebeded into the wire, in some point the wire gets thick. If you have no electricity in the car check the main big fuses, and fusible links. Check the fuses under the hood and under the dash. You may have a blown...
Asked in Pontiac Le Mans
Is there a fusible link in a 1968 Pontiac LeMans If so...where?
There should be a fusible link on the car. There will be two small wires that mount to the starter solenoid. The last few inches of these should be fusible link. A lot of times these are missing. When they do their job and "melt" a lot of guys just replace them with regular wire. Most any auto parts store carry fusible link. You can buy it in pre-cut pieces or in a roll just like any other wire. Hope that...

Where is the fuel pump reset switch from a 1991 BMW?
There isn't one on this car. If your fuel pump isn't coming on and you are sure the wiring is good ( fuse, relay etc ) try checking for a fusible link that may have blown. It's on the smaller of the positive battery leads about a foot from the battery. ...
Asked in Car Starting Problems, Starters and Ignition Systems, Check Engine Light, Chrysler Fifth Avenue
How do you get the engine to turn when there seems to be an electrical problem with the dash board and ignition?
I had that same issue with my 85 fifth ave. Just fix your electrical problem. If the car is a 1982-89 it's easy. It's a blown fusible link right near the positive battery terminal. (This most likely applies to the 90s models, but I'm not as familiar with those.)There are three leeds at the positive terminal; one to the starter, one to the headlights/interior lights (85s have a white connector on it), and the last one powers everything else (85s have a...
Asked in Car Batteries, 1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers
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. So, what you're saying is...

Asked in Alternators, Car Batteries
How do you find were the hot wire on the alternator run to your car shuts off as soon as you take the hot off the battery?
assuming that no one has cut a wire, the alternator is probably bad. could be a fuse. Depending on car, it could be a fusible link. Process of elimination. The main large wire on the back of the alternator runs to the battery. Should be smaller wire on the positive cable. ...

Asked in Car Fuses and Wiring
Does a car have a main fuse?
Does an Automobile have a Main Fuse? Although I'm not aware of any that do, it is possible that some may. Most vehicles, instead of a main "fuse" have what is called a "Fusible Link." A Fusible Link is nothing more than a piece of wire who's size is specifically selected to "act like" a fuse, and melt in two IF the current [current is measured in Amperes (Amps)] flowing through it is above the designed maximum current limit. Fusible Links are usually installed...

Asked in Car Batteries, Batteries
Can a bad fuse link make the battery run down?
It is not likely; a fuse link is in series with the battery and will prevent current from flowing if it's bad, but will not itself run down the battery if the car or truck is off. What it can do is prevent the battery from charging. The power from the voltage regulator that charges the battery also has to go through that fuse link; if the fuse link is bad, the battery may not charge fully. ...
