I don't have a wiring diagram with me so I can't tell you for certain if there is such a thing as a "charging module" in the engine fuse box, but typically when the alternator (which is internally regulated on the prelude) overcharges the system it will begin to blow one or more fuses when the engine is running.
Unless someone else can chime in and tell you that there is a "charging module" in the fuse box, I'd have the alternator/regulator tested for proper charging voltage (will most likely need to be removed to have bench tested off engine).
I'd have to check which fuse it is.
Yes exactly. If you charge the batter fully on a charger, install it in the car it's fine until the regulator engages charging. The second the alternator starts to put out voltage to the battery, the fuse blows.
Alternator is new. I know that doesn't mean anything but my mechanic did say he tested it.
