Check in owners manual or go on line for owners manual and check location of alternator fuse to see if it is blown or bad relay.

Check power going to the wire that is screwed onto alternator with a test light should have constant power going to it even with key not in the ignition. If no power may have a fusable like in that wire.

probably the fusible link [ red wire with lt blue tracer ] that runs from alternator to main wire from fuse block . I think its a brown wire that turns to red with blue tracer that is the fusible link
