So normally that fuse would be on a smaller gauge wire, much smaller then the main cables, as a general rule it would be 18" from the battery and can be on the frame or inside a battery control box with other fuses in it. Look for that smaller gauge wire and make sure the fuse is not bundle up with other wiring or going into a battery control box.

IF you still can not find it please let me know, follow ups are included..... Robert
