Hi Mike, thank you for posting your question to Just Answer. My name is***** am an ASE Certified Auto Technician with over 45 years of real world experience in dealerships and the aftermarket. I was the owner/operator of an automotive repair shop for 20 of those years. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please remember I do not know your skill level. I cannot see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so it may take a few back and forth replies or a phone call to get to a satisfactory resolution. I will make every effort to get you all of the information you may need with the expectation you will give me a positive rating once you are satisfied. Please be aware that I am usually working with a few people at a time, so occasionally it may take a few minutes to respond.

Were all of these items functioning before recharging the battery?

no I didn't
Toyota Mechanic: John Bryant,

Mike you may have a problem with the fusible link in the top portion of the diagram I am sending you. Do you have a 12 volt test light or a DVOM (digital volt/ohm meter)? I would double check all the connections to the battery and test the fuses with a test light. I can walk you through the process over the phone would be easier if you have either of these tools at your disposal.
