Something in the fuse #1 circuit is drawing too much current causing the fuse to open. You need to determine why this is occurring.

I had a couple friends take a look and one said I could have a pinched wire somewhere and another said it could be a ground or something...I don't know too much about cars...I'm tryin to get as much info as I can before I get overcharged at a shop
