Well sounds to me like you might have some moisture in the fluid which can cause the breaks to fail. Have your break system flushed totally out and refilled. Brake fluid is very touchy. If you leave brand new brake fluid bottle open for a few days it will draw moisture from the air and ruin the fluid.

Check your rear drum brakes a.s.a.p as they might have wheel cylinder leaks and your master brake cylinder will be low on brake fluid as the sensor for low level will leave the light on permenently.The rear wheel cylinders might not be visible but the leaking brake fluid usaully is but if not start at the master cylinder.Is the fluid level correct,does the brake pedal feel soft or spongy, is there fluid on the inside of the wheel/tyre.Rare for the handbrake switch to be faulty but may need lube but likely a brake leak.If unsure remove the rear wheels to be on the safe side of things.If all is okay the it will be a sensor on the master cylinder or the handbrake switch(but i doubt it).

Sounds like you have some electrical gremlins that have moved in...
Since the fan does not even come on, and the fuses keep blowing. It sounds like the resistor pack for the blower motor could have failed, or a wire is shorted somewhere.
The ABS could simply be a wire, or sensor that was carelessly overlooked to be plugged back in when the breaks were done. Or it could be more serious.
