Question about Chevrolet K2500
Truck was running and then died, lost all power etc. Found Fuse link at battery and at terminal block on firewall going to alternator. I have replaced both and had my alternator checked, ran wires and found no issues. I replaced both fuse links and re attached battery. Within 3 minutes both fuse links burned out again. Any ideas?
Something is shorting, make sure your hood is not touching positve side of battery, or battery is secured and not moving around and touching something

this link may help you guys. You'll have to check a few to find what you need but I suspect, if you can interpret the drawings, you'll narrow it down, otherwise take a copy to your mechanic, and it might help him.

sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

clean battery terminals ,bring battery to be tested after charging, after reinstalling battery run car and test alternator output it should be a minimum of 13-14volts if it is under 13 replace alternator , use a voltmeter set on 12 volt 10 amp dc to check the wire to check is located on the back of the alternator covered with a rubber grommet of course hold negative wirw on volt meter to ground and touch red wire to big terminal on back of alternator while car is running should have 14 volts or at least 13 volts
