    Unplug fans to see if fuse still blows. Possible defective radiator fan motor. Do you have the A/C on when this happens? That activates rad. fan as well. Any repairs done lately around the radiator area?

    Do the test first! Possible fan motor is defective and shorted internally. If fuse still blow with fans unhooked, then start looking for shorted wiring.
