24 10 AMP FUSE BLOWS WHEN TRYING TO START VEHICLE

My main question is:

Is "starter relay" and "starter solenoid" the same thing used intermittently even though on some Rangers they are fender mounted vs. Starter mounted?

It is a 4 cylinder with manual 5 speed Trans. Where is the short most likely?

Thank you.
