Open driver side door, remove fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel and check the instrument cluster 10A fuse behind on the fuse block (third row from the top, fourth fuse position note: first two position may be empty). If fuse checks out the connector behind the instrument cluster may have worked loose. Remove steering column covers, remove bezel around the instrument panel (this is held on with push clips), remove four screws from the cluster and ease the cluster out just enough to see and correct the problem. hope this has helped.
Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.

I had the same problem. I changed the computor, the key switch, the box in the trunk and nothing helped. I traced wires looking for loose connections and found nothing. I did notice that the yellow wire goes to the instrument cluster before going to the computor. All of these parts came from a junkyard so I changed them 2 times each and had the same thing. As a last resort I asked for an instrument cluster. He looked at me like I was crazy. After I changed it it immediately fixed the problem. You have change the odometer from the bad one to the good one. It is easy to change.
Have you replaced or removed the battery before this happened ? if so disconnect the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. Reconnect the battery and it should reprogram the computer system. I am not completely sure if your car has an instrument cluster fuse but check inside the hood and the fuse panel box.
