Re: radio fuse keeps blowing
There is obviously a short there somewhere + wire touching metal or something, and putting any fuse especially a higher amperage in there could find your short real quick by burning up your wiring & car

Time to do a wiggle test of the fuse box wiring. The circuits mentioned are not directly connected , but may travel through common wiring plugs. Try the fuse box fuses again (there may be more than 1 fusebox) Interior light / Radio / Antenna / Clock may be on a battery circuit but not connected to the Fog light not the turn signals other than a connecctor plug or simular.
You have a short circuit and need to take your car to a dealership for troubleshooting and repair. Don't keep sticking fuses in it and blowing them, it's a waste of money. Take it somewhere before you have yourself a fire or a serious electrical disaster.
According to my info, each of these items has its own fuse. ARe you saying 1 fuse keeps blowing?
If a fuse blows, it means a wire is shorted to ground or that an item the fuse is protecting, is bad.
A good way to diagnose this, is to place a 12 volt buzzer or bulb in place of the fuse that keeps blowing. This will give you a light or buzz noise. Then, you disconnect times or wire connectors until the noise stops or the light goes out. Then investiagte that circuit.
The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)
P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)
