Usually (and if your fortunate), the high amp alternator fuse has blown. This fuse can be obtained from any auto parts store. It may appear to to press in like lower amp fuses, but it actually has a small retaining screw or two on the side of the fuse block. It may or may not be in the same block under the hood w/ lower amp fuses.

That 100 aqmp fuse was it! The 15amp fuel injection fuse was blown as well. Thanks for the tip on the 100 amp fuse being a bolt in. Once I got the fuse block apart it was easy. The error was a blessing because the original 100amp fuse crumbled in my hand as I removed it. Thanks again. DEsst
