Trace that red wire to see where it leads. It probably is an afterthought auxillary wire going to a radio or something else. It might also be a work around wire trying to circumvent the fusible link. Match up the three wires of the fusible link to the old link. Should be two connections in the black box and the third female connector wire should snap into the male end of the harness. Anything left over is probably an extra.Ok. I FINALLY got my fusible link and replacement junction block. Took a closer look this morning at everything and good christ, if the fusible link doesn't end up being my problem, I should've replaced and cleaned everything a while ago either way.
Is it just me or did the previous owner do some weird stuff. Everything looks straight forward in regards to replacement but that red wire doesn't have a male connector piece to go into the female end on my fusible link replacement I got from Wit's End. I'm not very knowledgable with my 80 but I'm trying to learn. What should I do here? Is there a male connector I can buy and put together? Can I just cut the red female connector from the link and connect it straight up?
Thanks a bunch.
