it sounds like you have something overcharging the circuit.remember that fueses are in place as a circuit protecters so if its blowing out, then you need to check wiring.also dont try to put a higher rated fuse in, some people may advise you to do this but also remember that, the amperage you have in their was in there for a reason.also if you arent careful, and take care of this soon it could lead to tons of electrical problems and cost you big time in the future.1st step - check the wiring2nd step - test alternator at an auto parts store3rd step - if you havent solved the problem, talk to a mechanic that KNOWS electrical, or can get wiring diagrams.
