Depends on what'* bad, really. If it'* shorting out somehow and drawing too much current, then you'll blow fuses. If it'* just dead and drawing no current, then your problem is elsewhere.

If you know the actuator/motor is bad, unplug it completely ,making sure the plug isn't accidentally connecting elseswhere (in other words, tape it up), and if the fuse problem goes away, you'll know for sure.

It'* a PITA, ain't it? Bard part with a situation like yours is it could be a short, or a dead connection. ANd, dammit, the only way to find out for sure is to get in there and fight with it.....

It'll narrow it down to the lock actuator, or remove it from the equation anyway.

Gameover, didn't you recently splice in the entire harness on your Driver'* side? I suspect a wire rubbing.
