firstly, what electrical work have you done to the car?


Try a few things,
Undo the fuel pump relay, (under the overflow bottle)
Undo the o2 sensor and any other Large consumables in the car.

Slowly reconnect the items until it blows, with any luck, you'll find it quick smart.

well like most home job cd players, people do poor connections and in time, they come apart and short with other wires. So pull it out and have a look.

Also, stop using capslock, I feel like your yelling at me.
