There is a short somewhere in the system. It may be the turn signal relay switch and that would explain the blown fuse. But it sounds more like a short. It also may be the ECM which is your cars "brain" going bad which is a costly and complicated fix. So hopefully its not that.
Relays can be hard to get to, but that's the thing to check first. It may just be that you need to reset a relay. It should be up under the driver side of the dash board near the kick panel. If you dont know how to reset relays there will be a little hole about the size of a toothpick ( which is the optimal thing to use ) and push the button inside the relay. If you hear a click then it reset and some of your issues may be fixed after doing that. If not then you get into serious and tough to find shorts in the system and possibly the ECM. Hope it helps!

Disconect battery & pull fuse that controls air bag & wait 15 minutes (this will disable the airbag
There are two torx screws on the back of the steering wheel, turn your wheel to access them & remove. Pull off horn/airbag,easy does it. Disconect the wires on back & place in safe place
Remove nut holding on wheel with 13/16 socket. Pull wheel off with steerig wheel pulller.
Remove snap ring. Move Coil pack out of way.
Remove small metal band that holds on the metal star looking thing. You will need to use a steering wheel lock plate removal tool.
Now you have access to switch. remove a few torx bolts & it will be loose. Disconect the harness & pull through.

I recently started experiencing electrical problems with my Chevy Prizm (2001). Basically, one morning, I attempted to start it up, and then let it run for a couple of minutes. When I lowered the parking...


This just happened to my Prizm. We found a short in a ground connector, behind the driver's side kick panel. We cut the grounds and soldered them together. That fixed the engine dying issue, but the headlights won't go off. The DRL is apparently dead. I have to plug it in when I need headlights, and then turn on the switch. I'm looking for a used DRL right now.
