On a 2014 Street Glide Special, What does Fuse # 3 ( marked Bat) control

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?

All I see is a diagram of the fuse box , nothing about what it does, The problem is that fuse was blown, and with everything off, I replace the fuse and the new popped as soon as I put it in, sound like a short somewhere , but not sure where to look

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Special yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just tried to replace the fuse, nothing more,, found this out while trying to find why it won't start

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really sure what else to ask

battery fuse is for turn signal module and instruments.

it would be unusual for one to "just blow".

typically, fuses blow after maintenance is performed and somewhere during the process wires get pinched and grounded or shorted, or accessories get added that overload the circuit.

if you are aware of which of those occurred, you should start there.
