A fuse of that size will only blow when something significant occurs. Has the vehicle been jump started with reverse polarity on the cables? Has the battery shorted or some other condition occurred that causes full current to go through the 80 amp fuse either from the battery or from the alternator? Has the diode plate in the alternator shorted? I don't know what all goes through the 80 amp fuse for that vehicle, but most other circuits will be fused at significantly lower amperage. I'd find a good vehicle manual with a schematic of the electrical system and find out the possible sources of such an energy drain. Good luck. If you discover anything that makes more questions feel free to comment on this question thread again. I'll mark this question to watch for further activity.

The cruise control fuse for a 2002 Protege is under the dash in the fuse panel. It is a 10 amp fuse and is listed as "meter fuse."

If your heater does not work on your 94 Mazda Protege, check the thermostat. You can also check the heater fuse to ensure it has not blown.
