The top fuse is the "MOST" important in your case. This one supplies power
to the ignition.

Subject: Got the Bonnet Open! - Car won't start!
Well I got the bonnet open, Thank you ever so much for all the really
helpful replies!! I really appreciate it! I am very thankful.
What I did was take a wire hanger, make a small loop on the end, and I
fished it through the grill, grabbed the cable, and pulled it that way.
Works fine for now.
Of course, the car still won't start. We tried jumping it with my Trans Am,
no matter what we just can't get anything electrical to work at all.
Nothing. Even with my Trans Am supplying the juice. We checked the fuses,
and the top one is out. The handbook said that that fuse is not for anything
important though. Anyone have any ideas on what's wrong? There is a little
wire on the top of the battery which is connected to both the positive and
negative terminals, and has a little harness, which isn't connected to
anything. Should it be?
