Question about 1993 Geo Prizm

Open Question

100 amp Fuse blown in FL block.

My daughter has a 93 prizm that will not start. When I first looked at it, it made no noise at all when we turned the ignition. On further inspection, I found the 100a fuse in the "FL Block" section of the fuse box open. When attempting to remove the fuse, it broke and I was not able to extract it. When I shorted the two posts together, the engine will turn over nicely, but will not fire. What component do you think is most likely the cause of the burnt 100a fuse? Could it be the primary side of the coil, and therefore no spark?

SOURCE: blown 60 amp main fuse while crussing at 60 mph.

if you have good coils and no spark are the wires ohming out to at least 28,000 ohms per foot?

Full electrical power loss to everything.

Were the cables accidently hooked up backwards ? The main fuse at the fuse block may have blown. Check where your positive cable hooks at the main fuse block and there should be a fuse rated over 100 amps for the fuse block feed.

My tail lights are not working, and the light on my dash doesn't come on when the headlights are on.

this car has a tail light control relay that if it failed would cause the tail light and dash lights to fail. see
Also there is a second fuse in the engine bay that if it blows it will cut power to the fuse in the interior fuse panel for the tail light fuse .If you look at the circuit diagram it is labeled fl block ALT.

see link below for most likely location of FL block alt fuse

See also relay location in link below
Having also read a few other forum suggestions on a yaris the fuse may be under a red cover on the red wires coming out of the battery. There are 2 60 amp fuses possibly under the cover.
These can be damaged when a car is jump started incorrectly I do not know if you have jump started your car but this is a possible cause.

You need to check your alt fuse. It is going to be a big one, I think it is on the positive cable attached to your battery. should be 100-120 amp fuse. If it even looks suspect then I would change it out. You will also have a alt fuse in the main fuse block under the hood. Should be a 40 amp. There is a kill fuse it should be numbered 1 and 2 or just number one. If that one is blown you will not be going anywhere.

you have to raise the fuse block up and flip open the sides to get to the two small bolts on each side of 100 amp fuse to change it. a little tight working area.
