Alternator change issues

I changed out the battery(battery light was on and the battery was over 2 years old) on Sunday and alternator the next day(battery light was still on before changing alternator) on my 2008 toyota yaris and when I started it up, the battery indicator was gone but now the P/S (power steering) light is on. I have no power steering, no tail lights, no brake lights, no turn signals, wipers don't work, radio doesn't work, speedometer doesn't work. Head lights still work. Hazard lights work in front, but not the back. Horn still works. Anyone have any suggestions? I've read on many forums to have the alternator checked.

Check the large fusible links on the positive battery terminal. If you changed the alternator with the battery connected you most likely popped one of the links.

Thank you sir. That's exactly what happened. I checked the fusible link but it looked like the fuses were still intact. After removing it and upon better inspection I saw that it did indeed pop. Thanks again.
