Blowing fuses

So, I just got yet another mustang (the same one that I had the first time; long story, and I'll explain later), and I'm having a small problem already. My fuse number 8 in the footwell keeps blowing everyone I stick a new fuse in it. Amy suggestions?

Are you sure you're using the right fuse?

Do you have an aftermarket radio or illumination?

Well, the dude that had it before me threw one in, and it was working sort of weird when I got it. It would only turn on sometimes, and the volume knob didn't work. That being said, it still turned on sometimes. I took it out, and it continued to blow fuses. Assuming that this is the problem, what should I do to try and solve the problem?

That's probably it. I would take it to a radio/speaker shop. Or if you want a cheaper solution you could just put in a bigger fuse but that's kinda risky

Haha already tried a bigger fuse. Went to 20 before I got scared, but still blew it.

Unplug your radio and pop a new fuse in and see what happens

Maybe check your wiring kinda sounds like you have a short which would be a wire where the insulation has worn off and it's shorting to a ground drawing more amps
