OH, a trick I keep around for just such an occasion is a self resetting circuit breaker. You can find these in the electrical aisle- get one with really long forks. There are some that are made with different break-off lengths. This is just a temporary thing to save you fuses because sometimes these circuits will show continuity when operating correctly. What I do is plug the circuit breaker where the fuse goes- the long forks make it stick out over the top of the other fuses- then trouble shoot the circuit. When the breaker trips, you can either unplug the breaker and plug it back in to reset it, or you can turn the power off with the key, and that resets it. I keep it in my "special" tools box. These cost about $3, but who knows how many $'s it's saved me in fuses.
