that fuse feeds power to fuel pump relay circuit that feeds pump could be defective pump,or damaged circuit wires that shorts out! and not a good idea to put higher fuse in circuit could cause more damage to circuit! but i know when your stuck, u do what it takes,so inspect circuit related to fuse,

SOURCE: The blower motor won't turn off.
Sounds to me like there is a direct short somewhere in the system. With no continuity through the switch, the blower should shut off. So this means that there is a connection somewhere else supplying voltage to the blower motor. How rusty is this vehicle? Suggest you start looking for a damaged, salt and dirt encrusted harness somewhere under the hood, low enough to collect dirt, salt, grease and moisture. My guess is that you will find a collection of blue/green corroded wires somewhere. This could be time consuming, but you may get lucky and find it quickly. Look for the obvious. A year/ model specific factory wiring diagram...available over the internet...is a good investment, and may save you much time. If you are keeping the car, get one. You'll be glad you did. This will also tell you if the system is supposed to run on 2 -15 amp fuses, or if that is also a malfunction. Trust me, chasing electrical ghosts is a real pain, especially when you don't know where they are hiding. Keep me posted. Good luck. Chip

Regulator in alternator obviously faulty, have it bench tested & fixed or replace alternator, and cure your problem.

SOURCE: blown ecu fuse
ECU= Electronic Control unit. This is what controls all the engine electronics. All the sensors on the engine and other things are routed through the part. What it does is tells the engine how to run. Each sensor plays a specific role. The ECU reads how much are the engine is getting, tells the engine how much gas it needs, etc. Try digging around a salvage and finding a new ECU. Swap it out, and if it is still blowing the ECU fuse then you need to start looking for shorts.
