Sounds like you have the starter wires hooked up wrong and to continuous power. If starter shuts off with the key now, but wont engage the motor, you may need shims so that the starter drive lines up with the motors fly wheel
Have you checked your wiring to starter? It sounds like the power wire going to starter has loosened up.That would cause fuse to blow and also the way you described that the car died. Or even check to see that the red wire going to starter hasn't gotten dinged or melted by the exhaust. Anything that would cause it to short out.
You could just have a bad Ignition switch. It is not very expensive and is easy to change. If the new switch does not help you will have to trace down the wires from it.
Sometimes if you have a tilt wheel the wires break and ground out in the column. Most other controls are separately fused and the weaker fuse blows first. That kind of divides things up in the fuse panel to fuses heavier than the Ignition fuse. Also, if your Owners manual shows the Ignition sharing a fuse with another device, look at that other device for problems.
If you still have not found the problem its time to disconnect the Battery and use an Ohmmeter to find the grounded wire. When you find the grounded connection, the Ohmmeter will Zero out when you eliminate the bad connection.
it sounds like who ever hooked up the remote starter may have crossed wires I would recommend takeing it back to who installed the remote starter and have them look to make sure something is not crossed in the system
I would check to see if there is a short on the fan controller switch and the motor. sounds like a crossed wire, especially if it's ignoring your speed selection and running when the key is out. could be near the fuse box under the dash. the cig lighter circuit is live all the time as well as a couple others, it maybe crossing with it. I would pull the fuse panels assem down and check for crosses and shorts.
