Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

Testimonial: "Thanks, so much, for your help. My old Aunt just gave me the car and I don't think she even knew the dash lights were out. Will have mechanic repair"
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.
