I'm looking for the alternator fuse in the fuse box..

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your car. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

My van has been dying out. I want to check the fuse for the alternator bc it's a big job to take the whole thing out.

The alternator is a fuse link rated at 140 amps,

Do you show battery voltage at the large post on the alternator with the key off?

Does the charge light come on with the key?

Reads 12 on or off.. Battery light goes on. Could u tell me where the fuse is
Auto Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

I cannot show you the large fuse. since you have battery voltage to the large alternator post then that fuse is good.

There are two others involved, one for the battery light (must be good light is on) and one for the stator.

In the fuse link box under the hood it is fuse 26 which is a small/mini 10 amp fuse in the left side as you stand in front of the vehicle.
