Hello, thanks for posting
Have you checked the fuses in the box under the hood, the large 140 amp alternator fuse?
Is there power to any of the fuses in that fuse box?
Thanks for the reply
that bolt and nut should have a large cable attached to it, it comes directly from the battery, do you have 12 volts at that point? Is it a V8 or V6?
A 12 volt test light will work. Let me attach a photo and let me know if your fuse box matches it. Please stand by for a moment

Thanks for the reply,
The bolt is shown at the lower left, it should have power to it, right next to where the bolt is an integrated fuse link assembly, there is a god chance that some of the fuse segments are burned out, the white cover has small windows so you should be able to inspect the inside of the fuses, the cover can be removed. I would still like to verify that there is voltage to the post from the battery but you may see some burned segments inside the fuse assembly, it can be replaced by unbolting the 10mm nut where the cable is and there should be another bolt on the other end , let me know if you need help figuring out how to replace it.
hello, just checking to see if you've had any success with what I have recommended or if you need any additional information, please let me know.
