I did the same thing and I replaced the in-line fuse from the starter solnoid to the altenator with a 30 amp fuse and I had the altenator tested and it was ok. Put the car back together and it lasted about three hours and the fuse blew again. There has to be a short somewhere or a control module that shorted out. I looked for hours and it comes up the pcm. Can it be that and how to test to see if thats it

The only thing I have ever seen blow that fuse link is a bad alternator.
