    As a skilled dipshit that i am, while wiring up an amp i shorted one of the positive terminals and blew one of the links. Of course it's one piece and not a simple fuse. I am having the hardest time finding a replacement besides traveling to the nearest holden dealer and paying out the ass, no idea the price of one tho. Even the local wrecker that's open doesn't have anything.

    Got told i have to buy the complete positive terminal lead etc over $100...

    Best i can figure is to get out the soldering iron and patch the fuse. I cant believe this this replaceable fuse is only replaceable with a complete cable and terminal.

    Yep. Got onto the local Toyota dealer. $22. The new ae86 uses the same thing. Probably different amps but if Holden themselves can't sell them seperate then what the ****?

    the positive cable on the ve includes the fusible link
    the wreckers should have one
    please dont use the toyota one
    if it is not the same you risk your car burning to the ground

    I'm sure I've just replaced that without the cable before, almost positive it's available separately.

    From the hours of googling theres only really 2 reasons these fuses go. 1. What i did and short it out. 2. They corrode because they are too close to battery acids (the nissans are really bad for it by the looks)

    Do you know where i could find a part number or something? I looked on GMpartsdirect and found the cable and terminal as the one part probably like the parts bloke did, but no fuse by themselves.

    If i put the number on the part itself into google it gives me the single fuse ones used in Lancers...

    The numbers on parts are not always right.

    I read this again (2) so the fuse your talking about is at the battery end not the engine end?
    I would think there is only one fuse?

    Yeah it was on the positive terminal. Its usually under the big red plastic cover. There's 2 fuses on the one peice. One side seems to go to the electronics and the other goes to the motor. I popped the motor one so i had the dash and everything else come on, but turning the key did nothing at all.

    I hope this picture embeds. This is the Toyota 86 version, but the VE one is identical apart from the fuse ratings. You would assume that you could unclip the clear plastic covers and replace the fuse part, but the fuses arent replaceable, so you have to replace the piece as a whole.

    My daughter's VE S2 sportswagon had blown a Fusible link.

    Using the part number provided above I could get one for $53, but I paid $7.20 for a Narva 60A Mini Fusible link p# 53660BL and soldered it in place!

    See pictures for my progress! (I forgot to take a picture of Narva 60A Mini Fusible link p# 53660BL before I had cut it out!

    0. Broken link!
    1 Broken link 20190201_205918.jpg


    1. Removed cover from blown Fusible link and cut what was left off, and the cleaned it up
    2 VE Fusible link Cleaned up - 20190202_132826.jpg

    2. Cut top of plastic off and cut Fusible link link out and flattened it, and then bent trims over so that it would sit on flat wires left in battery terminal.
    3 New Modified Fusible link 20190202_132837.jpg

    3. Big Soldering iron used, need for heat. I used the holder of my small one!

    4 Big Soldering iron used 20190202_133048.jpg
    4. New modified fusible link placed in Battery terminal ready for Soldering

    5 New fusible link placed in Battery terminal ready for Soldering 20190202_133123.jpg

    5. Soldered both ends and both sides making sure enough heat allowed solder to bond correctly (No dry joints)

    Finished, pics of both side with the Narva packaging underneath
