was the starter changed for other then a complete failure? Does the starter engage then blow the fuse or does it blow immediately? If the starter is misaligned it could jam on the ring gear and blow a fuse

You probably have the small wire touching ground, when you turn the key, 12V run threw to the solenoid, wire is only live when you turn the key.
