car is not start everything works fine the
soon as you start the car it keeps blowing at
one hundred amp fuse out for the windows
and radio I know it's something tween the
starter and alternator in the battery I looked

shorting out like that

Blowing a 100 amp fuse indicates a dead short somewhere. I would check the starter and the wires that go to it.
