I have a 1994 4Runner I was putting an alternator in it and the hot leg coming off the alt arched off the alt and now the check engine light will not come on it will not start I've checked the fuses


The wire from the alternator may be a fuse link or connect to one. Fuse links protect the wiring harness from going up in smoke when there is a high current short. Get a manual from an auto parts store to find the locations of the fuse links.

Looking for the fuse that works with alternator.


no standard fuse in a fuse panel some vehicles have a master fuse/link that attaches inline if looking to pull fuse follow battery positive to where it links up with alternator some are by battery some by radiator but if its a fusible link not going to be able to pull it ---and as to a regular fuse their is none and some vehicles dont have any short in alternator usually means no out put if short in wiring than would have a constant drain on battery --their is no fuse that would stop that if short in wiring test the lines and replace the wires their is usually about 10 ft of wiring --if alternator pull connector from it

My battery light is on. its a brand new battery. why is my battery like coming on?


Have you checked your fuses ? There is a 10 amp fuse in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehcile in the engine compartment. Below is a fuse layout diagrm for that fuse panel. I have marked the fuse you want to check if you haven't already (# 26). If the fuse is good make sure you are getting power at the main big wire attched to the alternator. You should have the same amout of power at that connector at the alternator as you do in the battery itself. That is a direct wire going to the battery but it does have a fuse link in that wire so if no battery power there you will need to locate that fuse link and replace it. Sorry I don't have a picture of the location of the fuse link. Hope it's just a simple fuse or fuse link and I hope I was able to help....

Where is the fuse located for the alternator? i took the positive cable off and it died i wanted to check the fuse first which #fuse is it?


the fuse box under the hood is known as the (BJB) that is where you will find fuse for your alternator
location number for the fuse is F1.10 it is a 1amp fuse, there is another fuse which is an inline fuse, most likely the one your looking for 175amp location it does not specify, but red wire comes from the battery to the starter motor, from the starter motor to the alternator, the inline fuse is in the wire from the starter to alternator, there is n location for it, but easiest way is to check for voltage at the alternator, as inline fuse will be close to there, so if your there, just check at alternator for voltage
sorry it is not located in fuse box and the fuse for alternator in fuse box control the light on your dash

good luck, if i can help any further just ask

Thanks

Battery light stays on - not charging. battery & alternator good.


latifrashed, Look for an inline fuse coming off the alternator wires. Ford sometimes uses a 20 amp fuse located under a cover on the firewall marked engine main fuse. Check the fuse and if blown then this should solve your problem. If there are fusible links involved then these will have to be checked as well. Good luck with this.

Need to check voltage at back of alternator, should have no less then13 volt's, if you do alternator is good, this is just a self test for you, with engine off, with test light check for voltage at back of alternator, test light should light up, if it don't look for blown fuse link at starter solenoid on fire wall. most of the time a fuse llink will have a tab on the wire, pull genly on wire, if it feels rubber like, bad fuse link,

I just need to know what the alternator fuse looks like and where it is located


The Alternator "Fuse" is typically a "Fusible Link" and has been since the advent of Alternators. Typically it is a piece of smaller gauge wire and Crimped somewhere downstream of the Alternator. Follow the 10 AWG wire and the Smaller Guage wires and you should find a Fusible Link somewhere.
