SOURCE: blowing ignition a fuse
I believe you mean a 40 amp fuse? Wow! that's a dead short somewhere on a large wire. Could be difficult, or hopefully easy to find. There's always the smoke test option: Solder a jumper wire across the top of the fuse, making the circuit essentially un-fused and look for the smoke. Not the best method, but quick. Warning: if you do this, depending on where the short is, you could melt down the wire harness or possibly start a fire. Try this at your own risk! IT'S A "LAST RESORT" THING, WHEN YOU'VE TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE AND FAILED! Good luck.

CHECK THE THICK WIRE AT THE BACK OF THE ALTERNATOR THEY ARE PRONE TO MELTING THE INSULATION OFF AND SHORTING OUT AGAINST ANY METAL[GROUNDING OUT]

It MUST be the starter relay coil - or the power wire that feeds it. Likely a short in the relay coil (AKA starter selenoid).

could be the main computer - but last time a saw - they where over a $1000.00 dollars. suggest finding some one to install a matching amperage circuit breaker in place of fuse. it will trip and automatically reset - caution : if problem gets worse, could cause wire melting and fire
