Customer Question

I have a 1995 Ford E350 w/the 460 engine.
Dead battery, I accidently hooked up the batter charger to the wrong terminals.
I assume its a fuse (hopefully) but the owners guide is a little vague...
Need a little help...

The ONLY way to lose power to everything? knowing many things work directly off the battery? you either have a dead battery. or bad connection at a battery terminal OR a fuse link that got burned in 1/2. persay. There is NOT any main fuse that you just change. This model uses fuse links. Fuse links are soft rubber pieces of wire that will burn internally or in half should a short occur. Now all fuse links are hooked to the battery side of the starter relay, You need to inspect each of them. You can locate them, grab one end and pull and if it streches? its bad, if not? can still be bad inside so volt meter helps testing on both ends. Go to the starter relay /solenoid as shown in the location picture I have attached, I also included a picture of a fuse link, They are at the starter relay as shown in first picture. They are shown near battery and listed as fuse links A, B, C etc
