Icon4 Help finding Fuses/fusables

Hello everyone , I hate to beat this topic to death , but I have a 2007 4.0L sohc v6 ranger which I have put 2 new alternators(neither were bad) and A new battery. It currently has the brand new ALT. and battery and the alt is not putting out it charge voltage . the battery is at 12.5 , I check voltage between Alt B+ and negative on the battery and Have nothing.

which would indicate the fusable link or fuse being open.

My question is simple, Exactly where is the fusable link located and / or specifically which fuse(s) would it be and where they would be in the fuse box . I realize my owners manual should answer these questions , but Im not seeing a fuse or link related to the ALTernator.

I'm out of time and patience trying to find something I dont even know what it really looks like (the link that is) .

According to what I see its off the starter relay, but then I ask where the starter relay . and also is this fusable link difficult to access and splice or replace. ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me ,

Yes, if B+ on the alternator shows 0volts then fuse or fusible link is blown, that wire is connected directly to the battery, so has nothing to do with alternators status, good or bad.

Following the wire is the best bet
This thread has it in the Battery Junction Box(BJB) not sure WTF that is, lol, my '94 has nothing like that.

Thank-you , and I found one fuseable link off the positive battery about 8 inches down, and it was toasted. Understandably too, since I had to replace the poorly designed or poorly molded plastic Thermostat housing lower and after reassembling I didnt secure the
wires good to the alt. and they flopped down onto one of the pulleys and it sliced it in half ...ughhhh. hence my new alt . the battery was 3+ years so recv'd 60 back on the gold duralast. I will pick up whatever it is I eed to fix this link and hope thats the only one that blew out. thanks again for your input . much appreciated.
