The battery light on my 1995 Toyota Corolla came on. I had the battery checked and got a new one, but the light was still on. I had the diagnostic done and said alternator was bad, so I got a new one and put it on.
I had to take the AC loose to get to it, and now the car doesn't do anything, like it doesn't have a battery in it, no light, buzzers etc. I checked fuses and tried to remove a 40 amp one in the big box, it broke off , I got a new one and but I can't get all of the old one out.
Nice job on doing the repairs yourself! Try using a small flat end of a screwdriver to pry the locking mechanism spring, open, on both sides of the fuse box. Use your screwdriver to open the three back end screws loose on the fuses covering/housing. Also, If just the black top of the fuses broke off, not the fuse itself, you can repair easily with electrical type. Depending on the results of your original 40 amp fuse, if still good, you may not need your new fuse that you purchased.
