What car?

Have you installed any new interior lights?

Remove the roof light and check to see if anything is shorting.

I'd be more inclined to check the wiring first, and it's may work but not a good idea, as there has to be a reason, if it's sucking enough juice, maybe your best of setting it up through a relay.
what sort of screen are you talking anyway?

by the way I gather you mean your blowing the fuse, not the led bulb itself?

its a sound stream screen but it has fuses on the battery wire and accessories wire's so i wldnt have thought it would be that.my voltmeter dnt say its sucking the power.and yes it is the fuse which is blowing in the fuse box.

When does the fuse blow as soon as you put the terminals on the battery or some other time?
