Power locks and a short circuit?


I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty, and my power locks won't work. I have changed the fuse many times, but after a few uses of the power locks, the fuse blows.

Need some help on how to check for the short, as I am no electrician.

The front passenger side lock doesn't actuate when the fuse blows, so is this a sign that the short is in that door?

Thanks for your insight!

Logically the any short would be in the drivers door wire harness, because it see the most usage. Inspect the wire harness for damaged wires, chafed insulation, and failed wire splices.
