    Something is shorting the fuse which is a failsafe when they added the bigger fuse whatever was causing the short or ground has damaged something internal

1. Stop going to this shop.
A fuse that keeps blowing is a sign of a problem. You never replace a fuse with one of a higher amperage because the idea is the fuse is suppose to blow before the the wires melt and catch on fire. The reason it stopped working and the fuse didn't blow is probably be cause the wire did melt someplace and you are lucky the car didn't burn. If it did burn and the insurance company found the 40 amp fuse, they would probably have refused to pay.
The idea that a repair shop would do this tells me that they don't know what they are doing. Read this

2007 Honda Civic fuel door will not open, my son needs to get gas and the fuel door will not open, what is he to do?


You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull theliner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a blackcable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach inand turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel doorframe. Your fuel door will now be open.

For a fix, look at this low cost solution: http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-Broken-Fuel-Door-Cable-on-Honda-Civic-82170/

I tried it over the weekend. It works great.

Check light went on


The check light indicates an event has occurred that requires your attention. It could be anything from a bad sensor to a plug misfiring.
You need to get an error code readout. You can get a readout from many auto supply parts stores. The loaner meter is free. You can call around. Try Advance Auto, AutoZone e.g.
