What is that fuse for? If it keeps blowing then it is an indication of a short cicuit in the part/cable/wire for the unit the fuse protects.

Could be a short circuit on ignition wires or a broken ignition switch. Or a short circuit on starter wires or inside the starter motor itself.

I'm fues to my fan keeps going out on my 2006 P.T


More than likely you have an internal fault either in the fan itself or the thermostat that activates it.

For a fuse to blow it has to have a lot higher than normal current draw through it, which is normally refered to as a short. If the fuse blows almost immediately then I would suggest you unplug the fan, and see if the fuse blows with just the thermostat in the circuit. If it blows - replace the thermostat control. If it doesn't blow, plug in the fan and watch it. If it trys to start and then blows the fuse, replace the fan motor.
