Fuse when ignition switch is started. Replaced ignition

Customer Question

Blown fuse when ignition switch is started. Replaced ignition switch, but problem continued. Also found burned out TKS diode. Will start without the TSK diode, but revs at higher than normal RPM (1200rpm) from a normal of around 650rpm. Replaced TKS diode, but it burned again (in addition to ignition switch blowing fuse) when started.
