This should be located at the back of the fuse panel. There may also be a relay under the hood in the relay/fuse box. Check those as well.

Also, check the fuse in the back of the stereo (if equipped). If it's blown, replace with new one 2-5 amps higher than original. This may be the problem as the stereo may be drawing too much power. Also, make sure that all wired that may be or are connected to the batter (pos +) are in good repair and have a clean solid connection.

Do this for the ground at the battery as well as the chassi or block. Check also the pos + on the starter.

Please let me know if you need any further assistanve.

Could be 2 things. Bad selinoid on alternator or your auto light switch is stuck open even after lights go out. Also check any components that you have installed like amplifier or new stereo could have bad ground.
