In the 1988 Nissan the alternator, instrument panel, and backup lights shared a fuse. Before changing a fuse see if the backup lights work (have someone watch when you are in reverse). If the neutral start/backup light switch is broken internally, it can be blowing the fuse when you put the car in reverse.

How do i know if it is the battery or the alternator?

Remove the Negative (black) battery terminal while the vehicle is running and if the vehicle dies then it's the alternator, if it stays running then it's the battery. Although this method isn't guaranteed it's usually accurate. DO NOT REMOVE THE POSITIVE terminal (red) from the battery while it's running. It could cause a spark and make the battery explode. Another way is to drive to Autozone or Advanced Auto and ask them to test it. They'll do it for free.
