Fuse 19 (Hot in start or run) blowing

So my 96 ranger died while I was driving. I thought it was the fuel pump but later found it was fuse 19 which was blown. The fuse runs runs to the pcm relay's coil and also goes to the ignition coils..

so after i realized the fuse was blown, i replaced it and the truck started and blew the fuse again after a few seconds.

I was checking for shorts in the pcm relay and ignition coil wires and gave it 1 more try with a new fuse in and it ran fine.

I am scared to go for a drive and have the truck fail on the road again.

any ideas or anything i should check? Can a faulty ignition coil blow this fuse?

Well in case anybody is searching for a solution to the exact same problem. I eventually started throwing a CEL which indicated a faulty ignition coil.
