    Good Morning FTC!

    The fuse is the yellow thing inside that black box. Just pull it out with a pair of pliers and put another in. It can blow due to shorting when trying to power motors directly out of the battery. Check your robot for shorts using a voltage meter.

      Buy more than one fuse. This one won't be the last one blown this season.
