How do i fix my 1988 Toyota 4WD EFI charging system?

Make sure the circuit is good from the battery to the cable connection on the alternator. The main fuse may have blown which completes the circuit and powers the things you have mentioned.

How do I replace 100 amp alternator fuse in 1998 toyota camry

That's because this fuse is bolted on inside the fuse box, you'll need to remove the fuse box and turn it upside down to take the lower cover off and the electrical connectors, then you can access the 8mm bolts that connect the fuse to the main wires

1988 Toyota pickup will not start after changing altinator. no lights in dash and will not start. battery charging head lights work great

Check fuse-able links, check by gently pulling apart the wires on either side of the fuse-able links, be sure to try to check them all, it helps to mark the ones you check to avoid constant rechecking and getting "lost" on which ones have been checked. Hope this helps.
