Quit running while driving down the road. Will turn over but not start.

(1996 Isuzu Hombre)
The ECM fuse snaps a spark when I try to replace it. I undid the cable on the battery, then replaced the fuse. When I replaced the cable it too snapped a spark blowing the fuse. Purred like a kitten until this happened. I was on the expressway moving about 75 mph when it just quit. This is the only vehicle I have for work. Can you help? No noises, no leaks, no unusual sounds or attitudes. Great little truck. Standard five speed. I just had the clutch, pressure plate, etc. replaced. Runs great, no problems in about 105,036 miles, other than normal maintenance.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? N/A
How long have you had this problem? N/A

Hello, you have a short somewhere in the circuit where the fuse is blowing. The good news is you have the clue of which circuit is affected. A wiring diagram would be most helpful, but also check the system that the fuse supports. The wiring for that system likely got pinched during the repairs that were performed.

That's an educated guess at least. There are rarely coincidences -- look at recent repairs and the circuit in question and i'm guessing you will find what you are looking for.
