this is what happens when the wrong fuse is put in the system. it cannot protect the wiring. you will need an electrical shop to look at the damage and give you a bid. it will not be cheap. very time consuming job. Roy

but the 25 was in there first so why did it blow burn up when i put another in?

A higher amp fuse will not cause a circuit to blow a fuse. High amp draw or short will cause the fuse to blow
ANSWER by , February 23, 2011
The reason it blew fuse is because of too much current draw thru fuse from bad motor. Why it will not start is puzzling.
