Question about Cars & Trucks
This is a VERY bad mistake. It is impossible to tell what else is wrong and most likely other damages have been done apart from fuses.
You need an auto electrician to help you fix your Toyota.

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

start at the wiper motor harness and follow it back( even if wrapped up with other wires) you are simply goin to check carefully along harness and check it hasn't rubbed through and it's making contact with steel, with go through firewall at some point, that is a good spot for rubbing, but check it all carefully.

It is possible that if your old alternator was shorted out, it could have caused the main fuse to blow. The fuse is located in the engine compartment fuse box. It is an 80 Amp fuse and sits off to the right - all by itself. (See picture)
NOTE: There is also a chance that there is something else wrong that may have caused this fuse to blow. If it blows again upon replacing it, you need to inspect the wire that runs between this fuse and the alternator - it may be shorted to ground. If this is the case, you probably did not need to replace your alternator.
