Look at the large 60 amp fuse. It is most likely burned. Also trace the large cable from the alternator to the battery's red cable to make sure it did not burn the fuse link. Or you can test the wire for battery voltage to see if it has power. You should have battery power to all the big fuses in the fuse box. If you still need help, then have a certified mechanic come to your car's location to diagnose your car's starting issue in person and help you move forward with repairs.
