I dont know if yours is a 4 or 6 cyl. On the back of the motor by the firewall there is a 175 amp mega fuse inline on the positive cable comming from the battery. On the 4 cyl it is below the air box center of the back of the motor. On the 6 cyl, it is below the coil pack on the center back of the motor. Be sure to disconnect the negitave battery cable before you attempt this. There is a 3 inch long cover you pop off and you will see it. It takes a 10mm socket to unbolt it. Remove the fuse and ohm it out, if there is no continuity, you have a bad fuse, replace it. I have had 3 people replace their bats and alts ($350 in parts) just to find out it still had the problem. An $8 fuse. Good luck and hope this helps..
