That defeats the purpose metallicafatcat. Anyone can burn out any electrical circuit by using a high voltage paired with high amperage. Also, that doesn't necessarily mean that the fuse would have protected that from happening (unless your battery had a higher amp output then the fuse to begin with. Which would still defeat the purpose ::)). Fuses protect from spikes associated with a bad battery or a short circuit. Your statement is supercilious at best.

A short circuit is a low-resistance path, usually made unintentionally, that bypasses part of a circuit. This can happen when two bare wires in a circuit touch each other. The part of the circuit bypassed by the short circuit ceases to function, and a large amount of current could start to flow. This can generate a lot of heat in the wires and cause a fire.

A short doesn't fry electronics on a simple circuit.It can cause a fire but it won't kill the motor. A power surge on the other hand can kill the motor which is not likely to happen with a good battery.

If there was a fuse it wasn't blown. Still think they're necessary?
