1999 XJ Eating Power Lock (#15) Fuses

Okay, so around 7 weeks ago, I replaced the passenger power lock fuse (#15 on the fuse block), because my power locks stopped working. Well, tonight I had the exact same problem. So I take another 25A fuse and replace it. I tested it to make sure it worked, and it blew another one when I tried to lock it.
Friend tells me it's a short.
Is there any other problem (other than a short) that could cause this?

could be the wiring grounding out- that commonly happens in the wire loom between the door and the body where the wires flex when the door is opened and closed- a factory service manual is helpful at locating the wires that need to be tested.

I totally forgot about that. I had to replace some speaker wires before due the same problem. I've got a Hayne's manual in the Jeep right now. I'll take a look at it in the morning. Thanks.

Uhh... a wire grounding out (when it shouldn't) is the definition of a short. Immediately popping a fuse pretty much means you have a short someplace. As tsc said, the wiring between the doors and body is the first place to look.

For whatever reason, I can't pull the loom through the rubber door boot. Do I need to take my door off so I can get the loom out?

EDIT: Turns out I have another huge problem. Took the cover off of the fuse block under the hood, and I'm missing the relay for the ABS light and my fog lights. Does anyone know if I have to order these relays directly from Mopar?
