Question about Cars & Trucks
FIRST... be advised: What you are describing is
likely a HARD CIRCUIT fault... (the wires) which
can easily cause temperatures sufficient to MELT
UNLESS YOU HAVE A FIRE-FIGHTER standing
by with an AXE... you probably want to stop
testing by putting in MORE FUSES
If you have a TRANSFORMER HARDWIRED into this
branch circuit... Now would be the time to remove it.
Then have a QUALIFIED volt-ohm meter operator
clear the continuity between the HOT & the NEUTRAL
(or ground) before you burn the whole place down.
The PRIMARY purpose of ALL CIRCUIT BREAKERS
(fuses included) are to open the CURRENT FLOW
before a FIRE or MELT-DOWN opens the conductor
in it's weakest spot.
Temperatures necessary to melt insulation & ignite
wood are very low...
STOP TESTING with fuses...!!

How long has this been happening? Did it start all of a sudden ? When you say 'fuse' do you mean cartridge fuse, cut out or RCD (sometimes called an earth trip) ?
If it is a fuse (typically 30 amp in the U.K.) it could be pretty serious and I would get the circuit checked.

SOURCE: 99 vw jettal 2.0 gas fuse
Thats the fuse for the ECU, engine control module, and is a 15amp for gas 2.0. i would locate the ECU which is under the center of the plenum in the engine compartment and disconnect the long plug. Check for green discoloration on the multipin connector. Sometimes moisture will get in there and short some of the pins together. Leave ECU unplugged and replace the fuse. If it still blows cause is between the fuse and the ECU.

Is it really a fuse box ? or breakers ? If nothing is running on that circuit ,you probably have a short circuit , the fuse or breaker is saving you from a fire.
