I have an MG ZS that blows the 150A fuse everytime I try to start it. It originally blew while I was driving down the autobahn, and the car hasn't started since. The day it blew I had done some body work on the fenders, so both were taken off and then reattached after the work. I also put a new driveshaft in the front left hand side. We also had to weld a new exhaust hanger on to the car as the previous one had broken off and the exhaust was dangling. After all of the work was done the car started and drove just fine, I drove home, cleaned the inside of the car, drove to a vaccuum to clean the inside, left the car running, again, no problems. After leaving from the vaccuum and driving towards the autobahn, the check engine light came on, and I started hearing an awkward sound (it's been awhile but if I remember correctly I think it was a ticking sound) I pulled over and popped the hood, but it was dark and I couldn't locate the sound, after getting on to the autobahn to drive home, the car just died. I was driving down at maybe 100Kph for maybe 3k and the car just shut off. My headlights/dashlights work, and the car cranks, but the power windows, ac/heater, stereo, horn, dome light, and power door locks are all dead. After checking all the fuses, it is only the 150a that is blown. I have since checked the wiring diagrams in the Haynes manual and each system that is dead in my car runs through the 150a fuse that is blown. So after replacing the fuse and trying to start the car again, the symptoms remain the same, and the new fuse blows as if nothing has changed. Please help.
