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).
