Hello and thank you for trusting us with your Toyota question, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be assisting you today.
Are you available to discuss your question at this time?
If I may ask, are you working on this vehicle on your own?
no but I can if it's just a fuse change!
Well it's not going to be a simple fuse change, It is likely a fuse but not a fuse that just comes out, This fuse is bolted into the fuse block and will need to take that apart to replace it. If I may ask, what was the original problem to begin with? did someone replace the positive terminal?
First I tried to jump the car and saw smoke, so I disconneted quick. I had it towed to a shop and they rig a fix for the positive cable. Toyota said the cable cost $1,600.
Is there a possibility that the vehicle was jumped backwards?
do you mean cables crossed?
No, I've given and had jumps before and I went positive to positive and ground the black cable.
OK Does your horn work?
and the dome light.
but nothing eles
OK The 100A ALT fuse is blown
this fuse is located in the fuse box under the hood. However you can't just pull it out and replace. You will have to tear the fuse box apart and get it from the bottom because it is held by 2 bolts
how much is a 100a alt fuse. Can I get that fuse at AutoZone or Pepboys?
No it has to be a dealership item and it's going to be like 20 dollars at the most
It might cost 2-3 hours of labor at a mechanic's shop to replace
okay, how mush would that be do you know?
Depending on the hourly labor of the shop. Your average shop will charge around 70-90 dollars per hour. A dealership will charge from 100-120 dollars per hour on average.
Did you have any other questions for me today?
AMD you are right on, the place that rig the positive cable said 75 per hour to look at the issue.
Yep. So I would say around 2-3 hours of labor will get that fuse replaced.
where are you located, in the SoCal area?
No I am in the midwest.
