Painless wiring harness

Anyone have it in your mustang? If so has anyone had to replace the big fuse from the box that goes to the solenoid and starter?

Was wondering where to get the fuse because its cut differently then your regular fuses and almost all the shops in my area didn't have that type but I finally found one so my 68 is back up and running

Did you find the short to ground? Fuses don't blow for no reason. If you didn't find the short, you ought to get another spare fuse.

Metal body of the car is ground or negative. A positive wire from the battery goes to a light bulb them to ground and lights up. If it has a knick in the positive wire and goes to ground or the body before the light bulb it's shortened the distance to ground and called a short circuit.
In the case of a fused wire, it blows the fuse, thus saving the remainder if the circuit.
So he's saying you need to find what caused the fuse to be shorted and blow. Or else buy an extra because it'll blow again eventually.
