not near car at the moment had to take other vehicle to work but i tested all the fuses under the hood and inside the car is there a fusible link on the car that you know of

Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
did the fuses in the under hood fuse box especially the big fuses all show 12 volts and NONE are blown ?
if so we need to check the fusible links
there is a big battery power wire bolted to the under hood fuse box
off of that stud there should be a bunch of fusible links can you see if any of those are burnt out ?
usually they will burn out
if any are replace them

Sorry i was involved in an accident at work just now getting back on my feet but the problem still remains on the car. There is only one wire coming off the stud and it goes right to the battery. Any ideas?
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.
there should be a battery big wire to the under hood fuse box stud and there should be another wire off that stud that should connect to a block of fusible links the links should be red/black
