Thank you for that information. Would you like a wiring diagram of this circuit?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I already have that information. Where I'm curious is where to start looking and what are some potential problem areas if any. Can the neutral safety switch be an issue? It needs replaced anyways and i plan to add new connectors with it. But providing that doesn't fix my issue where do i go next? Is there any known areas prone to shorts that could be useful knowing?

Good morning and sorry for the delay! There are several things on this circuit that can cause this fuse to blow. What needs to be done is to disconnect one component at a time on this circuit to see which one is causing this short. Just disconnect a component and turn the key on to see if the fuse continues to blow. If so, move onto the next component. Repeat this until you have found the root cause. Since you have a wiring diagram of this circuit, it should make it really easy to map out this circuit and your plan of attack.
