does the alternator light come on when you turn on the key? If not then that light has to work or the alternator will not activate.

theres no light so what should i do to fix that

Check the bulb, it might just be burned out.

coul;d it be somthing with the fuse box

Yes that circuit is fused. I can't seem to find a good diagram of an 89 or I would send it to you.

Hopefully yes, if the ALT light turns on when you turn on the key then the alternator should start charging.
