Default fusible links

my fusible links that were on my battery are gone and i just noticed that. is that something that i need to put back. the mechanic that had my truck before must have took them out and ive been driving it ever since with no problems. also i think my truck used to beep when i first put the key in and turned it halfway. is this something that could also cause other things not to work.

If you ever get a short circuit that would have burned up a fusible link it will just burn up your wiring instead. You should replace them.

More like sounds like they are bypasses so dropping them back in will do nothing.

The beeping might be related to your door jamb switch if the rubber boot is cracked. I unplugged it and the truck hasn't beeped at me since. I don't know if there's a separate buzzer that's supposed to come on when the key is in, mine has never done that.

The links are gone and it’s just straight wiring

If you get a surge right now, like your voltage regulator starts going out on your alternator or you try jumping someone off with your battery, that surge could easily fry your fuel injectors or ECU.

With the fusible links in place, they will burn out before that happens.

No, you do not have to have fusible links.

You also don't have to have insurance on your house. Fusible links are just cheap insurance protecting expensive parts.

I never trust anyone else to do car work. They always mess something up.

Someone removed the fusible links in my truck. They've not been in there since I've owned it. Others have pointed out the importance of them, but if you're like me and just don't feel like fixing it, the truck will still work.

Some time in the future I'm going to do a major electrical overhaul on my truck (probably when I go VG33). At that time I'll probably put them back in there.
