Help! 100A Battery Fuse?

Well, my wife left her lights on in a parking structure and then got some idiot to jump it reversing the polarity and probably shorting out the battery fuse. Everything is dead electrically... assume it is the battery fuse.

Anyways, before I get to work on this tomorrow, anyone know if a standard parts store carries this or do I have to go str8 to Honda for it? Anyone replace this before?

Suggest you check the fuse then most likely head to dealer. I could not get a 10amp one for fuse box as they are quite same and only the dealer carried them.

No kidding - this was my first thought too.

Looks like the fuse is proprietary to the Fit (3 fuse housing on the battery terminal???) I'm hoping this fuse was designed for this very type of thing. I'll have to order it to be delivered to the dealership - no one carries it yet. Looks like we'll just get the thing towed over and given the 100% check over. ****wallet cries in fear****

UPDATE:

Battery fuse was fried - ordered a new part from Honda - not just a fuse - it had to be the entire battery terminal fuse bracket - 3 fuses permanently afixed = bad design. This got the car running - except for the non-ignition switch related interior power (interior lights, keyless entry/alarm and radio).

Brought the car in for warranty repair without mentioning anything. They replace a fuse of some sort on the passenger side somewhere (NOT LISTED IN THE MANUAL) - free of charge.

SO in my case 2 fuses got fried from this mishap.

That is the 10 AMP fuse It is in the fuse box on drivers side. It is under the orange thing on the top left in pic. Green arrow is pointing to fuse puller.

They said it was something on the passenger side which I thought was strange. I checked all the fuses that I thought could be related in the main interior fuse box and found nothing. What fuse is it called in the manual? What number fuse?

Not sure what it is called in the manual. It is a 10 amp one though. You likely missed it as you cannot see it without taking the orange plug out and then fuse comes out with.
