GM Bonneville/Eighty Eight/LeSabre 1986-1999

Fusible Links


See Figures 1, and 2

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.

Most newer cars have replaced fusible links with very large plug-in fuses. Sometimes these fuses are referred to as Fusible Links or Maxi-fuses. These new plug in type fusible link no longer require repair; simply replacement like a fuse.
