Blowing Fuses 85' Buick

85' Buick Century
75000 Miles

Hello,my radio,pw seats, and locks died on me,so I checked the fuses and a 20A fuse was blown,so I replaced it. 20 minutes later when the radio was on,the fuse blew again. Whats causing this to keep blowing? A short somewhere?

Yes you have a short,best place to start looking is in the drivers door wiring harness or under the power seat in that harness.Those wires see the most flexing and can break the insulation or (saw) to a metal surface

Check all the cigarette lighter outlets...a penny or small piece of metal often causes problems by falling into the outlet and shorting it. (lots of people keep loose change in their ashtrays where most lighter outlets are).
