RESPONSE

Fusible Links are generally located along the battery cables. The cables that connect between the battery and the alternator are widely used on many vehicles. When the links fail the entire section needs to be replaced. The 2003 Ford Taurus does not have any. Instead it utilizes a large 174 amp fuse that is located in the Battery Junction Box.

What is a Fusible Link?

A fusible link is a short piece of insulated low-voltage cable within an automotive wiring harness. It is there to protect the harness where a fuse is unsuitable. In an extreme current overload situation, the conductor within the link is melted while the excessive heat is contained within the link’s insulation.
