    Looking at the wiring diagram, there is a 100A fuse in the main fuse block that connects the battery to the alternator. Did you check this fuse?

    Please give provide the following info:

    a) was the engine running when it happened?

    b) quick short (hit it with a screwdriver etc) or something prolonged?

    c) does your horn still work?
