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.

Location alternator fuse

Hi Aaron, I'm glad to help! The alternator fuse you are looking for also runs the auto-shut-down relay. NOTE: If your vehicle starts a runs then this fuse is good. If the vehicle will not start and runs then its FUSE 3 a 20 amp fuse inside the power distribution center under the hood. NOTE: Next you'll want to check the FUSEABLE LINK. This link attaches to the battery cable its a big GREEN colored wire. If you can grab the wire and it stratches while your pulling it, then it need to be replaced. CAUTION: If this wire is blown, then you need to replace the alternator as well for a dead short internally. If both of these or good, the only other option would be the Engine Controller. NOTE: Before replacing the Engine Controller, take the alternator off and have it check at the auto-parts-store. Most of the time its the alternator and not the engine controller. Hope this help and have an awesome day Aaron.

Changed alternator and battery on 1998 Montero Sport, will not crank, was told to check fusible link but do not know where it is

If you look up the fuse lacations or wiring diagrams it should give you an idea on the location if not a definate location. they are usually located by the fuse panels. They also usually look like a plastic pill shaped bubble with a wire running through it. hope this helps.

Location of alternator fuse

I would have replaced the diode pack and brushes. It is a lot cheaper to do that rather than pay a lot for a recon item.

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

While trying to tighten the alternator I hit the 'hot lead' accidentally with my metal ratchet which caused a loud snap and blue flash where the hot lead attaches to the alternator. Since then, the car...

Look in your fuse box and see if you see a fuse labeled alternator. It may be marked "ALT". Try to locates that. The alternator is all electrical. There is a chance it is shot if it took a good impact. Locate it, try it, and write me back.
