Start checking for wires grounding on the body or frame. Wiggling the harness will also help find the short.

Check the main wire harness near the left upper control arm, wires are known to break or rub near the frame.

all it can be is the wire touching ground some where either at the plug or rubbing the chassis. or there is an internal short on one of the things on that circuit, which is possible but infrequent. you could tell by simply unplugging them if one of the things you unplug stops the fuse from blowing thats your fault
