Would be helpful if you indicated what year and model Alpine you have. Some newer Alpines with the three switches in the bat compartment have had trouble with one or more of these switches failing.....

If your battery shut off switches are not working you can reset everything by disconnecting the ground lead at the battery.

The middle (key) should normally be in the horizontal position unless you're cross connecting both banks. Here's a photo of ours. Glad to hear Blue Sea is taking care of you.
