If your alternator sparked then you likely do have a blown fuse. Did you check all the fuses inside or under the hood?

I checked all the fuses for the alternator, main fuse, etc.
At this point I'm sure what fuse would have blown or if its a main relay

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So in this case we need to check the fuses with a test light or multimeter, something is blown somewhere and sometimes the main fuses arnt visible to the naked eye when they blow

I dont have a multimeter to check the fuses. Im limited on tools and the car was working before and now nothing will turn on except the rear passenger exterior light, and dash (some of them) like check engine.

It wont let me get out of park and put it into netural.. So I'm stuck with this car in my garage
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

maybe you could buy one ? were going to have to do a lot of electrical checks to fix this problem

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Fuel pump doesnt turn over when key is in ignition, the key wont go to the start position (locked out) one ignition coil isnt seating correctly (i had to force it onto the spark plug) and the starter, alternator, and battery are fine
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

again maybe you could buy one? I dont know how else to trouble shoot electrical problems without the tools

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
