Electrical problem
1995 Chevy Lumina Engine Size unknown Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

what is the name of the box, under the hood, near the battery, attached to the wheel well ans contains fuses? The thing that I need to connect with a wire to the battery is broke! When I try to start the car it does nothing! Weird - I do have parking lights though!

Thats the under hood junction block. Or under hood fuse box. That fat red wire going to it is very important.

Is the whole box replacable? The thing that looks like a prong to a sparkplug broke off the main fuse box part!

That is a good question. I dont have a answer. If I remember right, I dont think it is plugged in. Its part of the wiring harness. Is it possible to drill a hole through it and use a small nut and bolt. Thats probably what I would do. Either that or I would weld a bolt to it.

As you can see I tried to use a couple cable ties to hold the parts together because the box is plastic - where would I weld a bolt?

There are several ways to fix this problem. These studs are very popular for melting. Due to the net loosening on the stud. If I had the car in front of me it would be a lot easier. Is the stud loose? If you take off the nut what are you left with? If I am seeing correctly the stud is broken fron the metal part of the fuse box. The metal piece sends the power to everything in the box. Is it possible for you to take out the broken stud then install a nut and bolt to secure the cable to the fuse box?**You will first need to use sand paper and make sure the cable is clean, so we dont have this problem again. That box comes out pretty easy too. Disconnect battery and the 10 mm nuts holding it in and lift it up and get a better look at what I am talking about. In worse case scenario you can go to any salvage yard and cut one out from a junk car and then cut yours out and solder the wires back together. I dont think there are too many wires in there.
