My 80 amp fuse keeps blowing
I have no power whatsoever, no lights, no crank, nothing.
I bought a new battery and still nothing. Someone broke into my 1992 NA Miata and stole the radio. Could that be an issue ? Also the body ground connection by the battery in the trunk is missing. How would i connect a new body wire ground to my battery ? Could anyone help me out with all the ground connections in the car ? I tried reading the wiring diagram but i cant figure out how to use it whatsoever. Thanks yall
Much love

Ground side of the battery will no blow a fuse directly. Starting at the battery positive terminal look for a short. The 80A fuse is the last line of defense between the battery and the power distribution box. I would also take a close look for critter damage to insulation beyond the fuse box (mice chipmonks squirrels etc). Disconnect the large wire going to the alternator just in case there is a internal short. Some cars backed then used a soy based wire insulation which some critters loved to eat. I suspect it will be a simple fix once found.
