A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

Hopefully you have a guarantee from the people you had to install the CD Player. If I were you & that is the case I would not muck around, I'd go directly to them & get the problem solved before it causes any further issues. Obviously they've done an error in wiring up the player & it's interfering with another part of the electrics. If you do take the car back, check that all is running correct before you leave once the job is done right.

Check for a short in the ignition system.There is a hot wire that is grounding out in the ignition.
