8541Hawk will become famous soon enough
Did you check the 30A main fuse that is not in the fuse block? It's by the starter relay....

One possibility is a dead battery. Check the battery voltage with the ignition off and then on. If the voltage drops signinificantly with the switch on that is a telltale. A dead battery can fool you with voltage but no amps.

Fuse usually do not blow without cause. Check for the cause...you wouldn't want to be left stranded.

Start at any aftermarket equipment installed. Bad connectors, worn insulation, etc.

Just pulled up the wiring diagram. If a 25 amp fuse blew something is wrong. Looks like you'll want to check the charging voltage - possible R/R issue. The main fuse fuses that and the +bat to the ignition switch.

Decide whether you want:
