Fig. Fig. 1: Fusible link repair

The fusible link is a short length of special, Hypalon (high temperature) insulated wire, integral with the engine compartment wiring harness and should not be confused with standard wire. It is several wire gauges smaller than the circuit which it protects. Under no circumstances should a fuse link replacement repair be made using a length of standard wire cut from bulk stock or from another wiring harness.

The fusible links are located near the starter solenoid and shares the terminal with the battery-to-starter solenoid cable.
