Hi ! Thanks for your question. There are 3 fuses that need to be checked. Fuse #11 is a 20 amp, 111 is a forty amp which means it is what's called a "fusible link". Then fuse #30, a 30 amp is in the central junction box. Look for black plastic boxes under the hood near the battery. Take the lid off. I don't know what kind of problem you're having. If you tell me I may be able to guide you to a solutionCustomer Thanks

Okay then we need to know if the system is actually charging then. Connect a volt meter to the battery. Red to positive and black to negative. Start the engine. Should read 13.8-14.2 or even higher if the battery is low on charge. Did we check all the fuses I mentioned? Number 30 especially. The problem can also be in the instrument panel itself. If the alternator is charging then you need to check for continuity (ohms) on the light green and red wire at the alternator to the back of the instrument panel. Should read close to zero ohms. Let me know!
