While cleaning the negative battery terminal a secondary

Customer Question

While cleaning the negative battery terminal a secondary wire broke from the eye where it attached to the terminal. There are two wires connected to this bolt. The one that broke is black with a single blue stripe, it has a thick plastic sleeve at the eye end of the wire, where the break occurred. Could this be a fusible link?

Hi I would like to help you out. This is not going to be a fusible link if its connected to the negative terminal of the battery. Fuses are only located on the power side of a circuit. What ever this wire is it is supplying a ground to the body, chassis or a component in the vehicle. This wire may be factory or aftermarket. The thick plastic sleeve at the eyelet end of the connector is just insulation. you can cut the wire back some and repair it with a new eyelet. Thanks
