Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
Today my brother-in-law replaced the alternator in my 2000 Mazda 626. He informed me that the 100amp fuse under the hood blew. Now the radio won't work, or the interior lights, and the locks only work with the ignition on...

This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.

interior fuse should be the culprit. Look for the Radio fuse inside (normally 10A red) sometimes labeled CABIN on the fuse layout

Make sure that is the correct amp fuse for that ,the alternator,also,check the large wire on the alternator,make sure it is not touching anything.
