if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing
sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

We had the same problem but when we put in a new fuse it smoked. It turned out to be something with the master cylinder and required the changing of a 20 dollar part by the mechanic and problem solved

It sounds like the fuse is doing what it is supposed to do, and burning out when there is a short circuit. Check the wiring from the fuse block back to the lights and pay special attention to the trailer connection.

The heading says2000 taurus and 1999 taurus. I looked up the wiring for a 1999 taurus. Fuse #28 goes to the heated oxygen sensors and the canister vent solenoid. You have 2 oxygen sensors (green connectors)and 2 catalist monitors(blue connectors) that use this fuse for the heaters that are in the sensors. I would check these sensors to see if any of their wiring is shorted. I have seen in the past where oxygen sensor wiring would rub on a front drive axel and wear thru the wire insulation causing a short. You really need to look at all 4 sensors and their wiring closely for shorts. If they look ok then disconnect all of them and reconnect 1 by 1 until fuse blows again. Fuse #28 also powers the canister vent solenoid which is located under the trunk (under the car) in a black plastic housing (approx 1ft by 1ft). It is the only item with wires going to it. If you disconnect this and the fuse stops blowing then it is shorted. Also check the wiring to see if it rubs or is shorted anywhere.
Hope this helps
