fuse keeps blowing

Anybody have a problem with the fuse that goes to the drivers seat and steering wheel adjustment switches? Mine keeps blowing. I think it is the number 13 fuse. I am guessing there is a short because as I am putting in the new fuse I get a faint spark.

Check your wires under the seat like connectors make sure they in proper position and no open circuit and make sure your seat motors works properly if the motor is goinf bad, it can cause a internal short and cause your fuse blown.

Does it blow when you turn on the heated seats? Or does it blow with them off?

Setat heat element fails in a way that days more current.... If the fuse only blows when you turn on the heater, that's it.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
