    Hello. Brand new here. I have one awesome 2010 5.7 tundra. Problem is believe the factory alternator fuse is bad. I have an after market 370 amp alt that charges 3 bats. I have a 0 gauge fused from the alt to my primary bat up front. When I disconnect the 0 gauge the primary alt factory wire will no charge even one battery. I have gone through everything. I believe the alt fuse is 180amp? White block looking thing in fuse box? How the heck does this get removed? Thanks guys. Oh my alt with the 0 gauge is charging 13.94. Hoff7894@gmail.com

    Needle nose pliers or a Kung fu grip. I took mine out to check one time. Just gotta wiggle it side to side until the sucker pops loose.

    I also have a 2010 Tundra that is the 5.7 V8 motor. we we recently had some repairs done to our truck and noticed the wire that comes from the alternator fuse in the fuse box under the hood is completely gone. can anyone tell me where this wire connects to directly? I have a 4 gauge wire that I can use that is not very long I've read that the wires that go to the alternator are quite a bit longer than what I have. Can someone please help me? I have looked everywhere online and even in my manual for the truck, and as I always say the Haynes manual suck!
    Tks,
    Sonya
