Unhappy 1978 VW Transporter wont start

Hi, About 4 weeks ago my van wouldn't start. No sound when I tried to start it. Had it towed to my mechanic and he said the fuse in the starter booster burned
out so he replaced it.(15amp) Cool, worked fine until last night. Stopped to get gas and it wouldn't start, so I ended up push starting it. Can you tell me where the fuse is so I can get moving? it should be the fuse again, right?
Thank you, stuck at home and missing work Michele

I don't know if we have any classic VW pro's around. Considering it was the fuse first time around, fair guess it blew again. There are only so many places where fuse panels/boxes are located. Begin by looking under the dash, most common location.

This may help:

Where is fuse box in Volkswagen transporter

Next step, once you get going is to have a good mechanic who knows how to troubleshoot electrical problems track down why the fuse is blowing in the first place.
