A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

It MUST be the starter relay coil - or the power wire that feeds it. Likely a short in the relay coil (AKA starter selenoid).

The problem will most likely be between the ignition switch and the interior fuse panel if it goes as soon as you turn key to "on".
If it were after the interior fuse panel, the fuses within the interior panel would blow.
You will need to look at the wiring out of the switch for a short to ground. Perhaps the harness is rubbed through under the dash.
The gray/yellow, light green/pink and black/light green are the ones that power up when key turned on.
If it blows when the starter is tried look at the red/light blue out of the switch. This is what activates the starter circuit.
This circuit is also protected in the interior fuse panel so another reason I suspect the problem is under the dash near the ignition switch.
Check it out and let me know if you need more assistance.
Thank you for using FixYa.
