1 Answer


A fusible link is a piece of wire that is a smaller gauge than the normal wiring. It acts as a fuse and will burn out if the circuit is overloaded. The fusible links in your car come off the underhood fuse panel and go to the alternator and the ABS system. A fusible link normally will cost $50 or less to replace. Most of the cost is labor. It is best to solder in the fuseible link, but they can be crimped in place if necessary. I can't find a diagram showing exactly where it is.
