Question about 1995 Plymouth Neon
The most common thing when a fuse blows is a short to ground condition. A short to ground is basically a wire that is being grounded in the wrong place. If the wire has a any open spots touching metal it is grounding out in the wrong spot. Seeing that it is blowing fuel pump fuses, your problem is in the fuel pump circuit. Check the wires running along the floor board on the driver side. You will have to use a wiring diagram to know what wire exactly. You will have to remove the tape around the wires to get to the wires. Look for breaks or exposed portions and repair correctly.(a saudering gun) I have the same problem right now and have started to look for the short. Is your alternator bad?(making loud growling noises)

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing
sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

disconnect wiring to pump. install new fuse for the pump and turn over ignition. the car wont start because the fuel pump wiring is diconnected. check the fuse to the fuel pump, if the fuse did not blow when the pump is disconnected it is a faulty fuel pump. I read this somewhere and a garage is up to 850 dollars in parts and labor only to offer me more parts and labor not relevent to my problem. I am towing it home and running this test my self.

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

The only other things on that circuit are your PCM(power control module) and the fuel pump/oil pressure switch. You can start with that but it is more than likely a ground somewhere on that circuit. If this helped four thumbs up please.
