How do I replace an alternator 100A fuse in a 2009 Toyota Matrix.

I put a new alternator in the car and must have shorted a fuse in the process. I have gone over all the fuses but the alternator fuse. I can not figure out how to get it out or how to test it. anyone have the same issue?

You must release the fuse box and lift up and turn it over as mush as possible, the fuse is held on by 2 shorts bolts and nuts under the fuse box.

SOURCE: 100A battery fuse blown?

They more than likely shorted out your 100a link fuse by grounding out your alt cable while replacing it. Sounds like they didn't disconnect the battery before hand. Your car has an idle program which it re-learns every time you lose power, or in your case, turn off the switch. You need to replace this fuse or your car will not charge.

Where is the 100amp fuse for the alternator


Middle fuse in the fuseholder attached to the positive terminal of the battery. It is probably a blue fuse and the cap is marked ALT 100A

Usually blows because someone attached the cables the wrong way round trying to jump start (which is easy to do on the side of a country road in the dark when it's raining) or else put in a new battery and got the terminals the wrong way around (which is pretty hard to do).

Let us know if you find it. If you put a new one in and it blows again, you may have an alternator problem so don't try it again before sorting that out (may even need an alternator).

Car has no power after changing fuses with car on


If your vehicle was running while you
changed a fuse, you may have fried the computer.
Try disconnecting the positive(red side) cable on your
battery. Desconnect it for about 5 or 10 seconds
then reconnect it. This will reset everything.
That is, if you didn't fry the system. You might
want to check that fuse you replaced. For future
reference, only change fuses with vehicle off.

Where is the alternator fuse on a 1996 toyota avalon


main fuse box - it's actually a fusible link, and it will look like a small relay with a clear top. Off the top of my head it's 60A or 100A. I forget whether they are keyed so that you can't put them in the wrong socket.

You can probably find one at a junk yard (get a couple)

There's a 10GA wire that runs from the alternator across the motor and over to the fuse box. Make sure you identify why the fuse blew and correct it, and don't just replace it. If something violated the wire somewhere causing a short, it could be intermittent or it could cook the harness.

Good luck!

Check fuses, maybe something was shorted when removing the alternator. Did you disconnect the battery first? If fuses are good, see if your brake lights work. If not, it is a bad brake light switch.
