Not sure you'd want to do that if you can. The fuses protect your vital electronics from surges and whatnot. A blown fuse is a heck of a lot cheaper and easier to replace than a computer. Just my 2 cents...

Without knowing your situation... No. Everything from variable valve timing, distributor, throttle body and fuel injection is handled by your computer. That requires a fuse box not only to protect its self but also to act as a junction for some systems. Even if you found a way to power the computer, it would probably see that something is very very wrong and attempt to protect its self. This could cause anything from it shutting down to it trying to put the car into a "limp home" mode.... I had a coil pack crack and short in my old Chevy, the computer went into limp home that basically was not letting me go over 3500 rpm or over 3rd gear... No telling what would happen In a mustang.

If your haveing serious fuse box issues I would not recommend a repair. Replace it by going to a junk yard. If you can't find a new enough mustang to pull from PM me, I know ware a totaled one is in FL and will help you out the best I can.

So you did something bad enough for your dad to ground you AND physically pull the fuses out of your car so you can't drive it. And even still, you wanna go against his wishes and try to start your car anyway, possibly damaging it and more than likely voiding the warranty. It's just not worth it dude. Wait out your punishment and then start your car safely with the fuses in place.

Well if he took out the fuses for a reason, he probably saved your life... too many kids dying cause of inexperienced with hondas let alone a mustang... thats why I learned to drive since I was 8 at our ranch with heavy duty trucks :O

Man up dude, you have to grow up sometime. You don't want to loose your dads respect. My guess is that dad bought the car, and dad can sell it just as easy!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds to me like your grounded for bad grades.
