I looked on GM service information, and for a 99 GMC K1500, there are no transfer case or 4WD fuses in the underhood fuse block. I don't even show an ATC fuse. It is somewhat rare, but not uncommon for SI to be incorrect, but it is to early to tell. Verify the info, and possibly include the last eight of the VIN. I take that back, I look on ALLDATA and it shows an ATC fuse underhood. It looks like it feeds power to the encoder motor, and the transfer case control module. You said you disconnected the switch, and actuator. By actuator, do you mean the front axle actuator, or the encoder motor on the transfer case? If you disconnected the encoder motor, just disconnect the ATC module and see if it blows, if so you have a short to ground. If it don't blow, chances are good you have a shorted encoder motor. The module is shown to be under the dash, by the steering column.
