okay i found them and they are in tac...so I assume they are good ...any way to tell ...truck went dead while jumping another car....now I got no power ...checked battery and connections and it is good
Expert:  Lurch replied 2 years ago.

 

You need to probe "before" & after" the Fuseable Links with a Volt Meter or Test Light
This will tell you which one is bad
Then Auto Parts Store will have the "same" Fuseable Link color / amp Kit to install new one

 

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
last question i have volt meter what should the settin be on and what reading will tell me its bad. u have been very helpful
Expert:  Lurch replied 2 years ago.

 

Need to determine if Voltage is going thru the Fuseable Links
Test before the Link to see if there is 12 Volts
Test after the Link to see if there is 12 Volts
If there is NO Voltage before the Link, then Battery, Battery Cable, or Connection at the Battery is bad


If there is NO Voltage after the Link then the Link is bad
