Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Fuse 15 powers a handful of components and it will take some electrical testing to determine why the fuse is blowing. The problem could be high current draw in any of the components or a short to ground on the circuit between the fuse and the components. This fuse powers the display, audio unit, the navigation unit, and is a power feed to the MICU.

Did the problem start after any work was done, a jump start, etc?
