Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. On Toyota and Lexus vehicles, attaching the battery up backwards almost always causes the 100 amp ALT fuse to blow. This is a larger fuse in a somewhat separate section of the fuse box under the hood. Can you check this? It will have a clear plastic 'window' to look at the fusible wire element. Thanks!
