I would try unplugging the offending parts of the circuit and seeing if the fuse blowing goes away. If not, I would leave the fans on with your set up to check it out (running power directly to the fans from the battery) with an in-line fuse of the rating in your fuse box for this circuit, and take it to the shop to have it fixed.

Sounds like a wire has been scuffed or abraded and now is shorted to the car frame somewhere. With a multimeter and some patience you can probably take care of the issue by identifying the circuits and testing them to see if they are shorted.

Good Luck, Jim
