Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Normally when you have a fuse box failure like your it is from someone putting an incorrect amp fuse in or the circuit bar inside the fuse box was damaged and had high resistance trying to power all the fuses. Step one will be replacing the fuse box, confirming all wiring and connections to it are clean, confirming the correct amp fuses are used. Then start the vehicle and confirm the charging voltage is correct.
