The fusible link is at the positive battery cable.
You would know it is bad by using your multimeter to measure the voltage on each side of it.
Measure the battery voltage across the battery with the engine not running.
Then move the red (positive) meter probe to the other side of the fusible link. If good you'll read the same voltage. If bad the meter will read zero.
With the engine running if your alternator and fusible link are good your meter should read
The fusible link is under the red plastic on the red positive battery cable
