Welcome to Allpar.Why did the fuse blow (if in fact it did)?
Something is staying on. Check your hatch area and rearview mirror map lights or any power outlet accessories to start with.

You will want the IOD (ign off draw) fuse #13 in its place or else critical vehicle components won't have battery power. If the vehicle is drawing excessive power and draining the battery, you will need to find out why. I just thought that it might be something simple like a bulb somewhere staying on, but it could be other components as well.
Any aftermarket radio, alarm, remote start or other accessory installed that might be discharging the battery?
