Keep blowing starter fuses after brake pad change

2005 CDI. I changed the rear pads, disabling SBC and then re-enabling it. Once done, I turn and click on starter. The 20A F59 fuse keeps blowing. I replaced the starter about 2 months ago and it has been fine since. The car worked fine before the pad change today. I checked the wires on the starter and they are good and secure. Open to ideas as I am running out of them.

I don't have knowledge with this particular system; but, with any electrical system disconnecting potential current draws helps to find the problem. If you can, disconnect the starter trigger lead not the heavy battery cable. Tape the trigger lead so it cannot short to ground, replace the fuse turn the key to crank and see what happens. If the fuse blows it is not the starter, if it does not blow it is the starter.

Try this at your own peril...again I'm not familiar with the system but it is how i'd try to diagnose my own.

Good luck!!!
