The main fuse is a miscellaneous item added to Fallout 3 in the Broken Steel add-on.


The main fuse is a quest item added in Broken Steel. On the quest Who Dares Wins, a broken fuse box is found that activates the train to the left. A robot named Presidential metro sentinel unit is carrying it in its inventory and it is required to fix the train. Should the robot survive the ghoul attack during the quest, it will eventually replace the fuse box itself, a rather easy workaround of it falling through the ground (see Bugs below for details).

Who Dares Wins: Go to the Presidential Metro and fix the train sitting in the station, then report back to the Brotherhood of Steel.

  • To fix, either reload a save or just kill the sentry bot and do the repairs yourself and then the quest will finish. Having companions wait out of range may also help. [verified]
