If it instantly blows fuses, you have a short circuit somewhere. If they blow with the switch off, the short is on the "hot" side. If with the switch on, short is after switch and before lights. Check for bare wires touching any metal ground. Also check all connectors to see that one didn't fall off making a direct connection to ground, or that it got bent/damaged.
