    Ok! So the main power wire from the battery is live leaving the battery but when checking the fuse box it is not live? If this is the case then it is a break in the wire! Because the main fuse box is fed from the battery directly!

SOURCE: Draining Battery on 1996 Ford Contour

A battery drain will not be caused by a bad fuse, its called by something draining power that you can not see. We call this a parasitic dran because just like a parasite drains your energy so does this. Its easy to test for if you have a test light. Loosen the negative battery cable and attach the aligator clip to the clamp next hold the post of the test light to the post of the battery and remove the battery cable being careful not to let it touch the test light. If you have any light thats your drain. On some fords you need to give the computers 30 minutes to power down after shutting the car off. if you want to isolate the system thats causing the drain pull and replace fuses one by one, when the light goes out you have your suspect.

SOURCE: how do you open a 911 C4S (997) bonnet when there

Your best bet is adding voltage through the cigarette lighter. Go down to radio shack and buy a cigarette plug. Wire it up to a small 12 volt battery. This should give enough juice to pop the bonnet.

Where are the fuses located please.

You can find the fuse box, under the steering wheel. Remove the plastic cover, and look on the back for the diagram. There is also another fuse box under the bonnet, usually behind the battery.

I keep blowing the 30 amp max fuse. I don't know if it is to the ignition or the fuel pump.

look under the top of the power distribution box it has a diagram.
The max fuse blowing means you have a serious short,a hot wire touching ground perhaps it's broken or pinched somewhere.
