Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
When i start the car it runs for about a minute and then stops i have replaced the battery and the alternator and when i turn on the lights the car dies
Make sure that the alternator is emitting the correct charge, it may well be something as simple as the carbon brushes in the alternator.
That'd be where I would start.
I hope that helps you.

Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't pulling excessive amperage (shorted condition). By replacing the fuse over and over, you might have made the problem worse by subjecting good components to something that was shorted.
BTW next time pick the oldest guy at autozone to help you, if the counter help knew their stuff they would have told you the same thing I just did!
