It appears this circuit is a direct feed to the ignition switch.

When does it blow?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
well the fuse was blowing when i turned the key on, funny but its not blowing now but when i try to start it there is nothing but ticking noise from the starter relay. have checked all wires and there ok, could it be the coil or starter relay? have swapd relays but get same ticking.
regards Barry.

I tried looking up a wire diagram in Alldata but it is really terrible. I'll need to wait until tomorrow when I can check a service manual. I need to see where that ckt goes to out of the ignition switch. The ticking from the relay may be a low voltage condition. How is your battery?

ok I will double check batt, thanks talk tomorrow.

Got a better look at a service manual. There are 3 60 amp fuses shown. Numbered 8, 13, and 16. Both 8 & 16 feed the alternator. It is a 6 gauge red/blk wire. The #13 fuse feeds the ignition switch. It turns into a 12 gauge or/blk wire as it leaves the switch. Which then feeds the fuse block.
This could be ugly :)
