1998 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 190000 miles
All my dashboard lights went dead, and my alternator didn't produce voltage to the battery. I replaced the original alternator with a remanufactured off brand. This new alternator also didnt produce voltage. (Checked with a voltmeter), If I unhook the positive battery cable, the engine dies. I have checked all the fuses. All are fine. I have followed wires, and connections and they seem to be ok. There are some other small unnamed " module things" in the fuse box, are they fusable links that are burned out, how do I remove or check them? If you think its the problem. My father was the original owner, so its not been screwed around with.
What wont work,
The starter sounds a little different too.
I have been charging the battery after work with a battery charger, and making it to work and back, before recharging it. I've already spent 150 on the new alternator, and cant afford to take it in.
