Default 1993 PAL fuse on battery terminal

Does anyone know where i might find some info on options for replacing these?
I think its what causing my start, then stall problem. Throwing coolant temp sensor faults, but grounds seem to be the cause. I dont think IGN 60 fuse is making good contact?

I had some problems w them too esp w the ignition fuse. You can clean up the fuse blades and receptacles. As contact diminishes w age and corrosion, heat is generated until the section of the fuse box actually melts.

Good luck,

Marty

Yes, i think the ignition 60 is too melted. Im wondering if i can replace that one with a MAXI fuse inline.

When the terninal that is tightened onto the battery was too corroded. I used a gold plated marine battery terminal. It has the same size hole so I could bolt the cable and the fuse box on to it. You take out the wing nut bolt and use a regular bolt. Maybe a copper bolt in that spot would help things? Hmm.

I think the thing to do is probably get a PAL fuse box with the same number of fuses. Run a battery cable to it and bolt it somewhere nearby in the engine compartment.

I did see the Volvo parts in the catalog a few years ago as being available. Never did get a price for the fuse box though.

Now im thinking of these for just the ignition 60 amp fuse. Its the only one where the slot has melted so much as i think its causing problems.

With nine colors each PAL fuse circuit could have it's own color breaker. Looks like a good comoonent. Maybe have a few of them replace all those fuses. Put them in the battery area and move the battery to the back of the car. Mine has been behaving since the battery terminal replacement. Hope you get yours sorted out.
