08 Hyundai Elantra - Why do fuses keep blowing?

Asked by Jun 01, 2015 at 03:08 PM about the 2008 Hyundai Elantra SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just had hail damage repaired at a reputable collision place - roof, hood, side panel, side rail, deck lid.  But the door locks, clock, map lights, and dome light keep going out.  They replaced the fuse once, everything worked for about 3 days then it all went out again.  What would cause the fuses to keep blowing?  This was not happening prior to the hail damage repair.
