96 Contour blower motor fuse

1996 Ford Contour, 4 cyl, auto. Everytime we replace the fuse for the blower motor (for the heater) the fuse blows within seconds - even with the blower motor turned off. You can hear the blower motor start to spin if you try this with it on. Any suggestions?

I would suspect either the motor is shorted interanlly or you have a short somewhere between the switch and the motor. Going to take some work with a multimeter to track it down. Also a wiring schematic like here:

disconnect the blower motor and try another fuse...if the fuse blows, it's a short to ground elsewhere in the blower control circuit. if the fuse does NOT blow, the motor itself is bad.

if the short is somewhere else...it's not a good DIY project
