My harness diagram is showing that each of the red wires going to the alternator has a fusible link in it. My fusible link location diagram is showing that each of those fusible links, along with 3 others, are all in the harness going to the starter solenoid. They are about 1-3 inches away from where the harness bolts to the starter solenoid.
Please let me know if I may further assist you.

    I'm sorry I forgot to mention that one of the red wires is power from the battery, and the other goes to the power distribution module.

Have nothing working no lights battery aint getting power Good wires ,good alternator,battery lights used to turn on

Sometimes there is a fusible link in the hot lead to the battery. Check shop manual to see if there is one. Otherwise, look for bulge somewhere close to the hot battery connector. Look for fusible links elsewhere if you cant find one near battery.

No voltage in ignition circuit or 5v reference wires. 95 Cutlass

Always picture in your mind how an automobile is wired up. Every single one of them would have a fuse box. Engineering rules the fuses must be as close as possible to the power source which is the battery. Now you have main fuses which may also be called fusible link. These big fuses carry along with them sub fuses which may power the ignition system, the fuel pump and vice versa. Some fuses will not have power in them unless the key is in the on position. Some would have twelve volts all the time, and some will have power in them only if a device is turned on, An example of that is the headlight fuse. All fuse in the fuse box have one thing in common. If for example you turn on the key and there is no power to the fuse that supply the ignition system then find a good size wire that supply 12volts only when the igntion key is on, and tap it somehow to that fuse. Make sure you are tapping to the right side of the fuse so that it still protect the circuit. In electrical troubleshooting you can do this instead of going crazy trying to find where the break in the wiring is. Does it even matter? No as long as there is a fuse to protect it, and makes the circuit work normally then it doesn't matter. Remember this is not mechanical stuff. Just stick to supplying power to the fuses, do not supply power anywhere else.
