Double check the main under hood Alternator fuse and all your wiring connections are they tight and correct?


Yes all connections are clean and tight what main an where ? The relays i have no way of checking them oh pretty sure all fuses are in cab by driver side door correct?And none of the fuses blew i dont even get a hood light with new battery an alternator iwas so stupid for not disconnecting the battery firt


To late to worry about it now Mike check this...under the battery...mounted to the core support...Power distribution box. It's a 12 or 16 gauge fusible link (blue color) 1997? that's built into the power wire of the alt. Follow the wire to wherever it leads (either the bat, starter relay, or power junction block).
