Fuse number 10 blowing on my 2000 chrysler neon

I have a 2000 chrysler neon.My number 10 fuse keeps blowing it controls the ldp abs
ptu sol/eng rlys/eng mod.
It blew on me and the car died.I replaced it numerous times and keeps blowing.
I can put a new fuse in and start it but as soon as I put it in drive it will blow.
I can somtimes get away with driving a few blocks then it will blow and the car will die.
Is there anything anyone can help me with it.
Also my anitheift light stayed on the last time I tryed.
Before this problem occured my battery light came on and I smelled elecrical but it was fine .The light came on a few times but went out and stayed out then the fuse blew and I am stumped.
Any idea's would be great.

You have a short to ground in circuit f12 18 db/wt.

It will be Dark Blue/White wires.

Now here is the fun part, it supplies power to the:

Leak Detection Pump
Powertrain Control Module
Torque Converter Cluch Solenoid
Radiator Fan Relay
Fuel Pump Relay
A/c Compressor Clutch Relay
Controller Anti-Lock Brake

The good part is has a Splice Pack (all wires join together).

S109 next to the fuse box

You can remove all circuits from splice and jumper one by one until you found the short to ground.

The Splice Pack will have one hot wire from the fuse box, use that one to jumper all others until the fuse blows or remove one at a time until intermittent concern is no loger present.

Then you know which circuit to trace for a short.

S109 is located when your standing in front of the car to the left rear of the fuse box where the harness comes out.

Let us know what you find.

look for damaged or bare wires that may be shorting to ground, when you place the car in gear there is a slight amount of movement in the engine and transaxle and it sounds like wiring may be shorting out.
