Blown fuse

Hi guys,
I'm not sure if thins the correct forum for this question.
My wife's 88 Carrera is not driven during the summer months. I got it ready for her to start driving it again and now it is blowing the radio fuse which also powers the the power seats and the A/C.
The first fuse to blow was a 16 Amp. When installing the se cord fuse I noticed that it is supposed to be an 8 Amp fuse so that is what I installed.
I put in a new 8 Amp fuse and it lasts a few minutes and it blows again. Can anyone suggest some points where to start checking?

Check the wiring on the seats, some time a wire will fray and cause short.

Do Not place a higher amp fuse or you may burn the wiring.

The other thing would be to replace the fuse block #1, if the resistance is found to be too high but first check the wiring underneath the seats.
