SOURCE: riding tractor blowing fuse
Put a volt meter on the battery when running. Shouldn't be higher than 14.5 or so. if so, it's overcharging. If you checked for shorts, did you run a continuity (ohm) test with a meter to see if the fuse is going to ground in anyway....do this. Disconnect battery completely, ground cable first. With fuse removed check each direction of fuse wires. If getting an indication of going to ground, unplug ignition switch. still grounding? check starter solenoid with ohm meter for grounding. With wires disconnected, check between battery side of solenoid and body of solenoid where it mounts, or a good chassis ground. (you might check that the solenoid mount is grounding to the chassis first) Then between the starter side. And the small connector from the ignition switch. It should not be going to ground at all. The ignition switch sends the ignition to ground to stop the engine, and the safety switches go to ground to prevent starting when in improper position. One of these switches could be faulty as they also allow voltage for ignition through when in proper position. Check switches. If two blade, it should open or close when operated. If 4 blade, one side is open, the other is closed when operated. With ohm or continuity meter, connect to two blades on 4 blade switch and see if they connect. Push button and see if there's a change. Try the other two blades. You should see a change on both, but different. Again, two of the blades (connectors) will see each other, two will not when button pushed. Same on two blade switch. Either open (see each other) or closed when button depressed. If not, bad switch. Some of these riders came with a 30 amp fuse, by the way..... 4x4papa

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing
In my experience...if it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key, under the flywheel, there is a stator that recharges the battery when the engine is running, remove the flywheel, in most cases the magnets under it are broken and are in direct contact with the stator. If that is the case, both must be replaced
