Default Samurai stopped suddenly, left me walking

Took my wife for a joyride up the canyon Christmas Day. Got a mile from home and it stopped cold. No electrical systems work except some horns I connected to the battery, and the brake lites.
I am a new Samurai owner, and I need help!

Obviously we don't know about any wiring that may have bee added, but normally all the original circuits are supplied via a fuselink. These have been know to corrode a little and fail, not just blow under fault conditions. I'd be checking this first.

Thanks for the response to my request. I have found the fusible link, but do not know how to test it. Also have not found what it is connected to.

I have found the fusible link. One end connects to the battery Pos. the other end disappears into a bunched cable. Can I cut the FUSE out and jumper a new one across? Any one know?

I wouldn't take it out. Have you a multimeter handy. If so just dissconnect the fuselink wire at the white connector, set the meter to DC volts and place the red test lead on the wire in the white connector from battery positive and the black lead to the battery negative terminal. If you are getting a voltage reading the fuselink must still be intact.
