Re: eb xr8 engine fuse?

there is fusable links coming of the battery the main engine fuse is one of them.Also there is an ignition fuse in the main fuse box.
Hooking the battery up wrong may blow the fusable link but could also damage the computor and the altenator aswell as other electrical gear.
Check the fusable links first.

if you have a test light or multimeter just check for power getting though from the battery.

The insulation on the fusible link wire will be swollen and loose if it's gone.
