I just drug home a 97 Escort Wagon that I got at a county auction. Got the car for $400. Battery was shot. Replaced that and it starts and runs fine. I drove it home from the county garage. While troubleshooting the no-start condition I found a fuse out at the block under the hood. The 40 Amp fuse labeled BTN has the top removed and the inside has a wire soldered across the two terminals. So this fuse is no longer a fuse. I am working without a manual right now. What is this fuse for and what would blow it? Would like to find the problem before I start replacing the fuse, at $3 a piece.
Thank you.

I guess that is a fusable link, not a fuse?

According to Alldata, the BTN fusible link protects the following circuits:
Hazard
Belt
Door Lock
Stop
Room
Tail

All of these are in the passanger compartment fuse panel
