Question about Cars & Trucks
Turn key on and nothing happens. No click no sound. jump car off and it starts. Could this be caused by the fuseable link on the postive battery cable?
Difficult to say. If you are connecting the jumper cables to the battery posts, the only thing you are doing is boosting the voltage in the battery.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery and the starter to check the cables.

The battery may be too drained to accept a jump. I would suggest charging the battery for about an hour or so and see if it accepts a charge. If not youll need a new battery.

First shoot your son. It is not the fuseable link, when a fuseable link blows you get no power at all to anything. I suspect you have a security system that needs to be reset.

I would bet it is a bad battery cable terminal. I just had mine replaced and from different forums it seems a common problem.

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

the starter is bad, locate the starter, it should look like 2 cylinders one lying on top of the other hit the smaller one of the two with a hard object like a hammer or a metal rod. be careful not to hit the back of the cylinders were the cables are loacted only the side round part of the cylinder. this will get the solinoid un stuck and it should start. you miht need to wack the soliniod a couple of time to get it unstuck it the solinoid is just plain dead you will need to repalce the entire starter. before you buy a new starter have them autozone or a autopart store test the original starter you will have to remove the starter in order to have them test it. do this after you have determined the battery is bad. pull the battery out and have an auto parts store test it. they usually do this test for free.
