Default Should kick myself in the nuts lol

Okay, So About 2 weeks ago, my battery light came on, and the gauge went down. I didn't and still don't have money to fix it, so thanks to ranger01, I got a working alternator for $20.00 today in the mail....We (me and my pap) put the alternator in, and still the same problem..alright, so I thought ranger01 ripped me....until my pap agreed to buy me a new one and I would have to pay him back over the next couple weeks. We put the new alternator in, and.....same problem..battery light on, gauge down. Now I drove my ranger for a week, just charging the battery every night...turns out, it was a 50 cent fuse in the fuse box under the hood. So, we talked to the auto parts store guy that we bought the new alternator off (been a friend of my pap for years and taught my pap everything he knows about fixing cars) and he agreed to take it back. So I put the alternator I got off ranger01 in and a new fuse and now it works perfectly...only question is...why did that fuse blow?

Fuses, like shit, happen. Nothing to worry about unless it keeps happening.

As for your bent alternator, well see above regarding shit.
