Check wiring. Sounds like yours is shorted out to frame some where.

On the fuse in question if it's the #8 fuse that runs your Fuel pump, starter and transmission. Pull all 3 relays that are right in line net to that fuse. Put them back in 1 at a time. fuel pump first. the try to start the car. (obviously it won't start.) then check the fuse. if it's fine it's not your fuel pump. then the transmission control relay. and again start and check the fuse. again if the fuse is fine it's not your transmission control. then do the same for the starter relay. My bet is on the starter relay. if it blows again email me and i'll try to help you through the issue. this happened to me, it was not a short or bad starter or fuel pump. the starter just had too much of a load on it. cdaigle1975@gmail.com

If you have electric starter that's probably problem . My 20amp fuse blows every week it is the starter\fuel fuse.I'm going to best buy to see .I'll let you'll know. Also because my car 2002 Sebring convertible limited locked me out because of alarm I asked Google and got in.
