Hi there. From the description you have given, it must of been the main fuse that blew, causing your vehicle to break down. Your vehicle’s main fuse is a high amperage fuse, it is capable of carrying a large electrical load. The short that caused the fuse to blow could have created enough energy to blow the top off of the fuse. It could be, a direct short in the alternator, that caused the failure. Sometimes, electrical shorts are difficult to isolate. Replacing the fuse without identifying the cause, will result in another blown fuse. I recommend your vehicle’s fusible link had blown so bad it blew the top off the fuse be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
