When this started happening your first thing to do is to check ALL ground connections. You will find possibly 2 under the dash. A white wire connected to a wire end with an eye and a bolt holding it to the firewall. Should be one on each side. Always check the grounds FIRST above all else. Make sure they are clean and tight. New shop mechanics will not check this, they just keep charging more and more, checking EVERYTHING else BUT the ground connections. I'm old school and do things right, the first time. Everything else being good, the power is feeding back through the fuse and causing a spike and blowing the fuse. If all grounds are good after your done cleaning and tightening and tried it out for a while, you may have to go as far as pulling the signalstat unit from the columb and checking that connection last. Only happening in hot weather may just be a happenstance. That would make no difference. Unless of course when it happens, the AC is on and pulling power when you use the signals. Use the signals when AC on and if pops the fuse, it's the ground connection at the AC unit. Have fun under the dash.
