Default Fried 120A fuse?

Has anybody had to replace a major fuse like this?

I bought a van from a dealer (that needed work) and they jumped it and I think crossed the jumper cables and the battery was dead. I bought a replacement battery and it wouldn't do anything.

I checked the fuses underhood and noticed the 120A fuse is toast.

Any local places to buy a replacement one in Wichita for a Mazda MPV?

I know some local salvage yards might have one, but wasn't sure if a standard auto parts store would sell one?

Was that so hard?

Now the real question is why the fuse blew in the first place (and a dealer is going to sell a vehicle cheap they know there are problems with it they don't want to deal with) - I'd say you're going to find something else wrong with it other than the dead battery and blown fuse... probably start looking for chaffed wiring harness - especially the main harness from the alternator. If you get lucky and that was it then hopefully you got a deal!

No harness is fine, shop tried to jump it and connected positive to negative etc.
