Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

If it blows the power lock fuse when trying to lock or unlock the doors then you either have a short to ground in the wiring or high current draw in one of the lock actuators.

The best thing to do would be to unplug all actuators and see if the fuse still blows. If so then there is a short to ground somewhere in the circuit between the fuse and each door.

If the fuse doesn't blow with the actuators unplugged then they can be plugged back in one at a time to see which one blows the fuse and then replace that actuator.
