Your owners manual should have the info in the back of the book.
If fuse number 28 is a 15 amp fuse, it could be the cruise control and brake lights.

SOURCE: fuses wont stay in box under hood

The fuse retainers are bent or something or other so you need to take some needle nose plyers and do some rebending on those fuse holders. Also poor connections cause over heating of connections that may cause loss of fuse holder spring tension You may need to improvise by adding a fuse holder and fuse across that bad fuse holder.

Why dose my fuse keep burning the one ander the hood

If fuse keep blowing up, there is a short on the wiring for that particular fuse.
Check the cover on that fuse box and it will normally tell you what number that particular fuse location.
Check your manual of your vehicle and it will tell you what device/comporent is connected to that fuse. Once you figure out what device/component is connected to that fuse then you can start your diagnosis on that particular device/component.

For example, there is one particular fix I've done which the fuse keeps blowing.
I've checked the location of the fuse and check the users manual for that particular fuse and it indicates a cigarette lighter. I've check the cigarette lighter and there was a coin stuck inside the hole which causes the new fuse to blow. Once the coin was removed, the fuse did not blow anymore.

Number 28 fuse keeps blowing

Some wire has lost its cover-layer of insulation, and the bare wire is contacting the metal frame of the vehicle. Kapow!
Get a technician to look for this "short-circuit".

Fuse under hood (20 amp) keeps blowing after vehicle is started. Progressed from a minute or two down to almost immediately after it is started. I can't find a diagram to tell me which fuse it is.

This is for the box under the hood

This is for the passenger compartment. You didn't describe what happened when the fuse blew or I might have been of further assistance. Anyway, here they are.
Hope they help you.

If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a good rating and a quick
"thanks" or "good job".It will help me as well.
Thank you.
