Car has blown the two 80 amp breakers in the main fuse box. This is the second time this has happened.
First the climate control messes up then radio controls stop working. All interior lights stop, and numerous other things are messed up. Car does stay running until you turn it off and then nothing the car is dead with the two fuses/ breaker blown. Battery is brand new and fully charged.

You most likely have a short in the power wiring coming from 1 of those fuses or both.
You can use a voltmeter on resistance reading and put it after one of the blown fuses and move the wiring around and check for a large change in ohms from near zero to maybe 100's or 1000's of ohm's. Also if it is the main power it could be a short in your alternator bad brushes as an example or the wiring from there back to the battery.
