Hello, thanks for posting

Was anything done recently to the engine or electrical system? anything repaired or replaced/ do you have a voltmeter or a 12 volt test lamp?

Timing belt. And yes we have a voltmeter
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

Thanks for the reply,

In the fuse box under the hood is a 120A alternator fuse, it is larger than the others and has a clear cover on it, is this fuse intact and does it have power to it, the cover can be removed to check voltage. there is also another smaller 30 or 40 amp fuse please check it as well.

There all good
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

O​k, just to clarify, there is no power to any fuses on the inside fuse box with the key on, is this correct? there is also a 30 amp power fuse on the inside is this fuse good and does it have voltage to it, remove the fuse and see if one terminal has power.

In the fuse box is a 40Amp fuse called AM1 is there voltage to it and is it good?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
There's one called main that's a 40amp and it does have power. But there isn't one called am1
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

Be right back

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

The 40A main is not the problem, it goes to the starter relay. What happens when you turn the key to the ACC position, does anything work like the radio or the cig lighter?

got to take a 15 min break, I'll be back.

Nothing is working in the car on ACC or running

The fuse box under this dash has no power
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

T​he fuse box inside gets poiwer from the ignition switch, replace the switch. Ny diagram shows a 40Amp AM1 fuse, it supplies power to the ign switch, give me a moment to locate this fuse.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The black with red strip wire in the bottom of of the fuse box don't that feed the fuse box ?
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

The 40A AM 1 fuse is located in the fuse panel on the inside to the on the right below where the small fuses are.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

And yes the black/red wire feeds the fuse box through the AM1 fuse then through the ignition switch, so if there is no power or the fuse is blown the switch is dead.

Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

The fuse has no power because the 100 A alternator fuse is burned out, this is the first thing I asked you to check, sorry, this didn't work out for you, please contact the moderator for a refund.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Grounded out when putting Alt back on
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 8 months ago

T​he 100A alternator fuse is connected to the 40A AM1 fuse so if there is no voltage at the 40A fuse then there is a problem between the 100 A fuse and the 40A fuse, if there is voltage to both sides of the alternator fuse recheck the connections underneath for the 100 A fuse, it's possible that one of the white heavy wires was not connected back on.
