Re: crank no start
You've got an open wire in your ignition system that's making fuses blow, i had the same thing happen to me check the wire that runs from the starter to the main fuse box and the wire from the battery to the fuse box. It will only be the wires that carry voltage, none of the ground wires should do that

What fuse's ? Ignition , PCM , ? Won't start how ? explain - when you turn key to the start position does any happen ? if nothing happens this is referred to as a no crank - no start , now if the engine turns over but doesn't start , this is referred to as a crank - no start condition. So which does your vehicle have ?
This is common about this time on these Camrys. I own three. The AM2 fuse is blowing because a coil, capacitor, or supressor has gone bad in the distributor. To test this disconnect the two wire connectors to the distributor. Replace the AM2 fuse. Turn the ignition. If the fuse doesn't blow. The distributor.
if the fuse is blowing when you turn key to start position then this is where to look for the fault ,between the ignition switch and the relay then the other side of the relay to the starter motor solonoid
It sounds like you have a short in some wiresets. Check the wires directly connected to the ignition. If this persists, without any problems with wires, I suggest checking the amperage and voltage on your battery to make sure they are at operational levels. Anything over 14.8 volts and you start to fry electrical components and... blow fuses.
If the fuse blew at once, then you have an electrical short. Try disconnecting power lead to start, cover with insulating tape/electrical tape, put new fuse in place, and attempt to "start". if fuse does not blow then the starter motor has an internal fault, replace starter and enjoy. Keep me posted as you perform these tests.
