Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Make sure you are only installing the required amperage fuse.If a higher amp fuse is installed this can short out the wiring and cause it to melt when a short is detected.

This looks to be a 30 amp fuse if I am correct here.This fuse only feeds the heated seat control module.This can be due to a short in the heated seat control module needing to be replaced or one of the seat heater elements.In most cases, it is one of the elements in the seats needing to be replaced.Below is a diagram layout for this fuse.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8tot0kkc87lqydg/hsm-01-22.pdf?dl=0

Here is the heated seat side of the circuit:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/fm0ubuw27edff16/hs-01-22.pdf?dl=0

You will need to unplug each component from the heated seat module one at a time,install a new fuse and re check until you come across the component disconnected does not cause the fuse to blow.This would be the component needing replaced.

If the fuse still shorts out with all components unplugged from the seat module then the fault is in the seat module or wiring leading from the fuse to the seat module.

If you unplug all of the connections from the heated seat control module does the fuse still short out?
