Hi there, the fuel pump may be failing and as it loads up the fuse is blowing, this can be tested wit an amp meter to test the current draw on that circuit.

Hi there,

This is a bit of a mystery, I would first run a scan and check for any unresolved fault codes, as the fuse blew with the pump disconnected it won't be the pump, I would also have a good look at the loom and see if it has been rubbing and chaffed through any where, also check that all the plug connections are clean & tight, see how you go.
