I bought my kid a 1994 Escourt LX and he did something so now the 100 AMP fuse under the hood keeps poping, what is this fuse hooked into that would cause it to pop each time I hook the battery cables back up to it?

Sounds like a short somewhere, check your wiring for any signs of burning. Something that blows your main fuse could easily damage your battery permanently. If your not familiar with autoelectrics you'll need to take it in, it can be difficult to diagnose problems. This might help. www.aa1car.com/library/battery_runs_down.htm
whatever this fuse controls is drawing too much power, you need to know exactly what this fuse is for before you can find the problem,it may be the fuse for more than one thing.......hope this helps........cheers.
a fuse only blows when it is overloaded eg.if you have a 10 amp fuse & the unit it supplying power to is drawing 15 amps it will blow, that is why the fuses are there,firstly make sure you have the right amperage fuse,if it keeps blowing,whatever it is supplying power to is faulty, don't try and overcome the problem by using a bigger fuse as you may start a fire......hope this helps.....cheers
yes there are several fuses including a large amperage fuse in the outside fuse box probably 50 or 100 amp, take your time and carefully check all the fuses inside the pass compartment and under the hood ,youll probably find at least 3-5 fuses blow.
