Question about 1997 Mazda B-Series
I hate to break the news to you, but there is NO fuse for the alternator. I suspect your alternator is not working. I suggest you pull it off and take it to any good parts store and it tested before purchasing a new one.

In the main connector to the battery positive are the fusable liks for the headlights and the altenastor you can find a bad one by pulling on them as if they come apart easily their bad. This is for the big wire on the back of the altenator. Theirs two wires in the plug one is hot all the tyime and the other is hot with the key on( this wire comes from the battery light) The gauges fuse powers them and if the temp gauge and the fuel gfauge work the fuse is likly good. If the altenator is
nt chatrging and all the wires at the altentaor are hot with the engine running ( not just the key on) then the altenator needs to be renuilt or replaced. Sometimes you can get it apart yourself and put brushes in it but most of the time this takes pratice and experience to do this correctly and the proper testing techniquies to get it right as the store sell rebuilt units for exchange. Always disconnect the battery to work on the altenatore wireing and when your problem is corrected right the battery fully charged up as the altenator is'nt a battery charger and can overheat and fail if it;s treated like one.
