PART TWO: I discovered the 150 Amp bridge type fuse blew on the fuse box on top of the battery. So I modified the fuse to make contact with both posts.. Generator light went away!!!! This is only a temporary fix will this be safe for a few days?? Please Help

Replace the blown fuse.
Re: (vasillalov)

I think the Alt fuse is 110 Amps not 150
Re: (gulash50)

I will replace it on Monday since the auto parts store is closed and the nearest dealer is a full days drive..
it is a 120 amp metal type fuse 150A s177 according to Bentley..
Is this a basic auto parts store part or dealer only?? Please help again and thanks for imput!! Everyone round hear drives old fords
