the battery cable should be on one post and the fusible links should be on the same post. the other post should be the starter cable only

Your car has quite a few things tied into that circuit. I believe it's a 15 amp fuse you are referring to. that is what that circuit is calling for.
I feeds into the headlight switch where it then runs the dash lights, auto delay exit light. Power door locks, illuminated entry module, LT and RT door switches, door lights, lights under seats, glove box light, engine compartment light, trunk light, lights on warning chime, antitheft system, clock(analogue dash only), radio, cigarette lighter lights and courtesy light switch.
Light bulbs can cause fuses to blow. If the fuse blows imediately you have a dead short somewhere. You can buy a circuit breaker to put in place of the fuse and it will take longer to blow than the fuse unless it is a serious short. I would first suspect a bulb. Start removing them 1 X 1 starting with the dome light. Note: also try putting the dome light switch in different positions, the cigarette lighters, remove them. All the bulbs you have easy access to, remove and reinstall if the problem is still there.
You can only go so far before it is going to take a professional to solve the problem. Electrical problems are among the more difficult for an untrained person to diagnose and fix. You can deal with the obvious and simple things, but you can actually do more harm then help if you start digging without knowing what you are doing. EVEN POOR GROUNDING OF A CIRCUIT CAN CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE AND CAUSE A FUSE TO BLOW.
I hope I have given you some understanding of what is going on. Your car is one of the more complex ones to works on in certain areas.
