I have no power to any part of the car. I turn the key, there is power, won't turn over, then there is no power. Like the battey is dead. Can you tell me where the fusable links are?
Do you
have the same problem?

"I turn the key, there is power"

Fusible links don't fix themselves intermittently. Start by cleaning and tightening the battery cable connections. If that doesn't help, you'll need a test light or inexpensive digital voltmeter to continue.

Why can't you guys ever just answer a question. It's always the long way around the bush.

Do you want to fix your car or take "the long way around the bush"? I'm getting really tired of people who think the details and observations must be kept secret and we're supposed to know over a computer what's wrong.

Some fuse links tap off the starter, ... On SOME Fords. Some tap off the starter relay on the fender, ... On some models. Some are by the left strut tower. Some are buried in the wiring harnesses because you hardly ever have to get to them. They look like, ... Oh wait. Sorry, I already answered the question. What are you going to do when you find them?

It also depends on the engine size, factory-installed options, etc. That's why they always ask you those questions when you go to the auto parts stores, but you see fit to keep that information secret too.

Sorry for beating around the bush, but my goal is to help courteous people fix their cars. If all you want to know is where something is located, you need a live human being who can actually look at the car.

Docs right, you don't melt a wire and then it magically repairs itself temporarily but you don't want advice, you already have all the answers. Happy hunting.
