My 280K miles 2004 Prius is completely dead. I pushed the start button and there was a noise like a fuse blowing, then nothing. The 12V battery is new and fully charged. Is there a main fuse somewhere that I need to check? Anything else I should look at?

Fuse box in engine compartment. left side of engine. fuse bar located on left side of box. check those very carefully. if one is blown, then replacement of fuse box might be necessary.

It turned out that the month old battery had gone bad. The original battery lasted 8 years, the second Toyota battery lasted 6 years, the O'Reilly's battery lasted one year and was replaced by this one that only lasted a month. The O'Reilly stored said they had four of them returned. They offered a refund of the original cost but they are $200 now so I'm trying one more time.
