If the questioned circuit keeps blowing fuses--replace fuse with a test light--light will illuminate as long as there is current flow to ground (Short) when short is found and removed (bad wire etc,) light will go out

Replace the fuse with a test light Turn on running lights (test light should illuminate) Remove bulbs one at a time Check fixtures until test light goes out - this will indicate area where short is Further investigate wiring in this area

There could be a short in the wiring if a 1990 Ford diesel starts and then shuts off after 30 seconds. The short could be a hot short which causes the wiring to get extremely warm and then short out causing the engine to die.
