OK these are 03 Bonneville, i. am trying to see what is on the same circuit as radio, you have a dead to ground short if they blow that fast, let's take a look, click to enlarge

That bottom one is of no use to us..interior lights. I thought it would show more. I know of no car that has a circuit for radio alone, they don't draw that much (stock anyway) what else does not work? I couldn't find a legend for an '03 Bonneville to save my hide. Is there one on the fuse box cover? It's not a trickle leak short to blow a fuse that fast, like I say somewhere there is a dead to ground short.

Something wrong with the fuse holder. inspect carefully to find the shorting tab~

Good idea.
