sorry, i know this is probably the wrong spot, but more people read here and need a fast answer, meant to be studying for exams.


the fusable links int he engine bay, look like little boxes, i know if their blown the little bit under the window blows out right?

is it possible for them to fail out of sight? eg underneath?

cause i just checked mine and 2 of them when removed and shaken rattle alot, all the other ones are silent. no rattle at all.

is it possible they are blown where i cant see?

the ones that rattle are

BATT
HEGO

and the battery light on my dash is staying on atm, and i get s**t fuel economy. just a co incidence?

The best way to remove doubt is check them with a multimeter.

your oxy sensor might have shorted (hego) and in return blows your batt fuse.

you should be able to see the break. don't go buy rattle technique as the copper most likey has vapourised.

unplug the o2 sensor and replace the fuses as follows.
start and run.
plug in the o2 sensor and start/run again... if she blows.. get on ur bike to repco.

Nah, HEGO gets it's feed from the IGN fusible link via the ign s/w.
