Toyota, 1990 P/U V6 Engine

Total sudden electrical failure. This vehicle has never had a blown fuse since new. Now all of sudden I have lost all electrical. No lights, no radio, wipers, nothing and of course NO START. Checked all fuses in three different locations. All intact, except maybe the 80A fuse link is blown. Can't really tell for sure but am unable to remove it from its holder. Other two fuse links come out very easy just as they should. Looks as if the 80A has clip that one should be able to move back and release the fuse link so that it could be pulled from the holder. Not so! Can't get it to release. HELP, please before I have it towed to a Toyota shop.
Thanks, David

I had a similar problem when I had my first 88' Yota 22RE. It turned out a the positive battery cable corroded so badly it was completely severed. Check your battery cable all the way back to the alternator.

HotinOKC: Thanks for the advice. Corroded positive battery cable. Slight bit visible on connector but when I removed it from the post it was totally covered. Cleaned all posts and cable ends. Works fine. I have put at least 5 batteries in this Toyota since new in 1990 and only today did I notice how small the positive cable is. Think I will change it to a larger one. Thanks again.
