    I am having a problem with my fusable link. I have a 1974 Blazer and yesterday I went to go start my truck and nothing happened. My horn didnt work or my lights. BUt when I messed with the fuseable link I was getting things back slowely, then it died again on me. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    Generally, a fusible link is either good or bad. If you managed to get the 2 ends inside to touch you could get current flow, but it would be very intermittent. You could have a bad connection where the link is bolted on. As always....check for a good ground when looking for electrical gremlins.

    If you have that easy access to the fusible link, check continuity with a multimeter. Easy enough to do, and will tell you immediately if it is the cause or not.
