    Is it the Maxi fuse (30 Amp) fuse marked IGN 1 that keeps blowing?
    You need a good wiring diagram and patience to start tracing the wiring to find your short circuit. I have worked on a lot of cars that have had rodent damage where mice have eaten the wiring harness.
    There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://www.alldatadiy.com/
