Recently I noticed the remote door locks, dome light and dash clock were not working. Under the hood to the right side is where the fuse is located and is 7.5 amp blade type which controls all three items. I replaced the fuse only to have it blow as soon as I replaced it. I thought it might be because the engine was hot so I waited till the next morning and tried again. And the same thing happened. All of the rest of the fuses in that box are fine. Just the one keeps blowing.

The fuse is blowing out because a positive 12 volt wire is grounded or shorted. Cause is hard to pinpoint. I would suggest to start one by one, check the wire above the dome light if it is grounded/shorted to the metal, unplug the wire connectors of the dome light and install a new 7.5 amp fuse. If it blows out, then the dome light is okay. Go to the next step, check the wire behind the clock if it is grounded. Unplug the male/female connector of the wire. Install a new 7.5 and check if it blows out. Same thing with the remote lock. One of these 3 is grounded or shorted.
