Can a car be driven after the battery fuse is destroyed?

Asked by Oct 13, 2016 at 09:53 PM about the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T with Saddle Leather AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car died after I had a new battery put in and drove a few days.  I needed to have the old battery jumped twice the week before.  The dealer says that the fuse on the battery was destroyed due to the person jumping it putting the cables on incorrectly, or the person who put the battery in putting it in backwards before correcting it.  The dealership claims that I could drive the car until the battery lost its charge.  The people who put the battery in claim that I could not have driven the car off their lot if they destroyed the fuse.   Who is correct?
