SOURCE: Blows fuse wont start
More than likely its being caused by a short-circuit to ground in the wiring in your Cranking Circuit.
If it blows the fuse immediately after installing the fuse, its probably a hot-wire. If it blows it the second you try to crank it over, its probably one of the wires between your ignition and the Starter Relay.
To track down the bad wire you'll need a Wiring Schematic for the vehicle and either a Digital Volt/Ohm-Meter or Test-Light and a basic understanding of wiring which is... honestly a little hard to explain over the internet. However, that is the only course that can be taken without taking the vehicle to a qualified Dealership Technician.

SOURCE: Blowing Fuse
There are a few possibilities here. First, you may have high starting amps on the compressor. You mentioned the run capacitor being changed. I'm not sure if you have a start capacitor, but that should also be checked. If you don't have a start capacitor, I would recommend having a hard start kit installed in the unit. It's basically a start capacitor with an internal relay to take it out of the circuit when the compressor is running, and wires up in parallel to the run capacitor. Also, check all of your line voltage wiring. Make sure all the wiring connections are tight (wire nuts, screw terminals, etc.), and that there's no issue with wiring insulation rubbing off from vibration, etc. Finally, check the points on the compressor contactor. If the contacts are black and pitting, it causes arcing, which means excessive amp draw through the contactor.

SOURCE: car was running in driveway
i am assuming that the fuse you are replacing is the fuse for the fuel pump, then replacing the fuel pump did solve ur problem for 3 days.
did you check again the fuse of the fuel pump? if it is blown again, try looking at manual to see if you are putting the right fuse. is the fuel pump that you put in is an original pump for the car or a replacement pump?.
if it is a replacement pump, kindly check the label and if you can find out what rating of fuse it is using then use that fuse rating for that particular pump.
another case could be another defective pump...could be a factory defect...
you can compare resistance of windings of pumps to find out if they have problems.
another thought could be if there is a return line on your fuel system..if this is clogged and building up a pressure on the fuel line, then this could cause a problem on your fuel pumps.
i hope i was able to solve ur problem,
pls rate me,

SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing
Well there are alot of things on this fuse that could cause this concern. Door opening switches,clock,radio,all the interior lamps but the most common areas would be the vanity mirrors or the door opening switches. The LG/Y wire is the wire on these that you are concerned with.
The vanity mirrors would be my first area I would look at. Remove them and trace the LG/Y wire back and see if it is pinched or scrapped so that a bare wire is touching metal. If you see nothing there then remove the door switches on the a pillars in the door opening and check the same wire.

SOURCE: reverse lights fuse blew
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
