Question about 1994 Toyota Corolla
You take the vehicle to an accredited auto electrician and have them check the charge circuit and battery
could be the alternator or voltage regulator or problem battery
have them check the drive belt condition and tension
if the units have been rebuilt by reputable electrical company, they are a cheaper alternative to brand new and should have a 6 months or 12 month warranty with them

loosen the bolt that is holding the adjuster of the alternator. loosen the belt by pulling it and the alternator would slide in. remove and replace the belt.
do the reverse on installation.
remember to tighten all bolts of the adjuster and alternator after tightening the belt.

If your radio is coded, make sure you have the code and know how to re-enter the code in the radio.

Possible short in electrical system....Something is discharging this battery. Have you recently installed a sound system? That where my short was.

Is the regulator built into the Alternator on this vehicle??
If the regulator is messed up - it can keep the alternator from producing output. I am not familiar with this particular vehicle.
Airframe and PowerPlant mechanic. I am familiar with principles, and how stuff works... Clarify with the 'parts house' what they mean by the alternator being OK - while producing 0 output. A lot of vehicles now have the regulator built into the Alternator...
A Hanes or Chilton's book would probably be able to help, and since the car is only 5 years old - see if you can pick up a Factory Repair Manual, and diagnosis troubleshooting flow chart. These items are worth gold in fixing specific vehicles.
You could also subscribe to: alldatadiy.com This is another technical resource base. Hope this helps.
And: Yes, there are fuses. A fusible link would probably mean the car wouldn't run, and/or a direct bad short. A fuse could have inadvertently blown - look around. Get a book. Electrical stuff needs a roadmap.
