HELP! BLowing 50AMP Slo-Blow fuse in '98 Forester

Folks -

My brother-in-law gave us his '98, 200K mile Forester as a first car for my daughter. I drove it about 250 miles from NJ to VA - and the next day, the electrical system was dead.

I did some poking, and found that one of the 50 amp slo-blow fuses in the fusebox under the hood was bad. I put a new fuse in, and the alarm started going off, and the fuse promptly blew again.

Any ideas about where to start troubleshooting this thing?

Thanks a bunch -

Forester Dad

I'd start by getting a wiring diagram (PM me your e-mail - I'll send you one) and a good multimeter... Sorry, cannot help with more specific details.
