There are 2 fuse boxes one behind the glove box and one under the hood, it is a black box on the righthand side of the engine as you are facng it. the fuse you want is in the engine compartment fuse box, it will be 100 amps or greater. If the fuse blew you have a very serious short, or someone jumped the battery, and crossed the cables.

Alternator was not charging battery so I replaced the alternator it still is not charging my battery


A connection/connector, wiring, fuses, fusible links etc. can cause a no charge. Check the charging voltage at the cable coming out of the alternator. Make sure the input voltage is good ( field voltage ) into the alternator also.

Where is the alternator fuse for a 2004 dodge stratus


alternators need a voltage from the battery to work as they have no residual magnetism in the fields . If it won't keep it's charge then have a load test done on the batter as it is most probably dead

Changed motor car wont charge found 4 broken wires in harness 2 in ground repared them still wont charge was told pcm needs to be replaced and programmed. what about pigtail on alternator being bad


Yes, repair the alternator wire. The pcm does not control alternator output, it only uses and monitors it. I don't know if it is a problem, but maybe from the bad wiring you found may have affected it. Don't know who told you to replace the pcm, but think I'd get a second...well, a third opinion.
Sorry I can't help you more, good luck.

My # 30 fuse keeps blowing... 99 Mercury Cougar


If it is a 7.5 amp fuse, it powers the charge warning light in the cluster and applies voltage to the alternator to make it charge.
You will need someone to trace that circuit and look for a short to ground. It may be in the cluster or in the harness.
Something else besides the fuse is making the car not start.

My 88 Tracer started having problems with all dash lights being on. Then a day or two later over heated lost all antifreeze except small amt in overflow. Let it cool added some to radiator and overflow....


OK, first, I think it may be the alternator. If you charge the battery overnight, the engine should run for about an hour before it discharges again.
I don't think the coolant should affect the wiring.

There may be a fuse panel for the high current fuses in the engine compartment. It should be 30 amp or higher.

Does the generator/alternator/battery light come on when the key is in ON position?

What engine? 1.9L or 1.8L?
VIN Number?

Fuses for 2002 mustang gt


There is no fuse for the alternator. If the alternator is working properly, it should charge the battery. Have you had the alternator tested? That is where I would start. Remember, just because it is new, doesn't mean it can't be broken.
