Most likely it was a shorted wire leading from the fuse to the DME or an internal electrical fault in the DME itself that has caused this fault here with the harness and DME needing replaced.This is usually the most common issue here with the harness most common out of both of these.
I would check for any shorted wiring or components leading from this fuse for any issues.If any issues are found they will need repaired to resolve this fault.If no other issues are found I would install the harness only first then install a new fuse and see if it shorts out leaving the new DME unplugged.It it does not short out then plug in the DME and if it still does not short out have the DME programmed and you should be good to go from there.
