How do you tell if a fuse is blown?
Remove the fuse from its holder. In some cases you may need a small screwdriver to unscrew the fuse holder cap. Look at the fuse wire. If there is a visible gap in the wire or a dark or metallic smear inside the glass then the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.
What to do if a fuse has tripped?
Unplug all appliances on that problem circuit and switch off any immersion heaters (if you have one). Switch the tripped switch to the ON position and plug in the appliances one by one until the trip goes again. Leave that appliance unplugged, and have it repaired by a qualified electrician.
Is there a fuse for the battery?

Is it OK to bypass starter relay?
Not a great idea. That starter and battery cable is a big wire pulling a lot of current through it. What makes you wish to do this? You are better off momentarily bypassing it with an insulated screwdriver as suggested if you just want to test or otherwise run the starter.
