Default parking light fiuse keeps blowing in 2003 cruiser

Recently I had been having problems with my left turn signal flashing really fast and eventually not flashing at all. Then my power locks, dash lights and back lights stopped working. I checked all the fuses in side the car and under the hood. Replaced the fuse in the #2 slot inside the car and one other spot (i cant remember which slot) which fixed the lights and the locks. Replaced the bulb for the turn signal, but it was still flashing fast and dim. Went in the house and came back out like an hour later and the lights and locks didn't work again. Checked the fuses again, and they had blown again. Replaced them again but every time I turn on my light the #2 fuse blows. Im not sure what the problem is as I don't know anything about cars but if it is something I can fix myself I would like to since not even a month ago, I spent 1800 getting this car fixed. Could the the issue with the turn signal light be causing the fuse to blow? Are the 2 even connected? Any help would be appreciated....

Pull the steering wheel column cover & check the plug that plugs into the MFS.
Do the same for the inside fuse box...both of these are known to melt & burn wires in the G1's (2000-2005).

are you speaking about the fuse box inside the car or under the hood? Once i remove he steering casing, if a wire is burned out, how would i fix that?Not to pull the girl card but again i don't know much about cars but I would like to fix it myself if I can. I have spent all of my money getting it fix the first time. also when i purchased the car i noticed there is still wiring for an old speaker system that use to be in the car I just noticed that wiring is running through the fuse box that is inside the car. How would i remove this wiring... thank u again

That old wiring is most likely the cause of your problems. Start with a loose end that you find and just start removing the wire by pulling it back the way it goes. Do not take the loose end and start pulling it from there. It may be attached to other wires and you don't want to pull something loose. And yes, LionPT is referring to the fuse box inside the car.

might i add that the switch on the steering wheel that controls the cruise control stopped working a long time ago. the switch itself just hangs loosely off the steering column. when i push the button to engage the cruise control the cruise control light will flash on the dash and then go away. nothing happens after that....i just remembered that, thought i would add it in there. I couldn't get this fixed before, but thought maybe this has something to do with my new problem...
