Default no fuse light and now car won't start

Saturday when I went to start car it wouldn't start. One third attempt it finally did but the 'no fuse' light came on one dash. My interior lights, radio, power locks were all not working but car ran so when I got off work later that night car started fine again but took to Auto Zone to check it out. I googled the 'no fuse' so figured the problem was the 20amp yellow. Auto zone tested battery and it said 'good'. They advised me to take back to CarMax and have them replace fuse. When I tried to leave today car wouldn't start at all. Fuses appear to be fine.

Try the No#17 fuse in the PDC (Power Distribution Center) in the engine compartment. That's the Ignition Off Draw (IOD) and it's hard to see if it's blown. It's 15amp.

IMO, I'd have Auto Zone recheck the battery or get a second opinion from someplace else. I had the same exact issues and had Advance Auto check my battery and they said it was good. After few of these 'no fuse' readouts along with no starts i replaced the battery and it never happened again.
These cars are VERY finnicky when it come to battery issues.
