Something must be wrong to have blown the main fuse to start with....
What have you done? ... Is the sensor the correct type?
Is the battery connected properly?

Check the fusible links, these are in the small rectangle box in front of the fuse box under the bonnet. The VR V6 workshop manual shows that the 02 sensor uses fuse 12 under the steering wheel, the V8 might be similar, but I dont have the VR V8 wiring diagram to check out how the V8 02 sensor wiring is set up, but it still might be worth checking.
