Starter fuse keeps blowing

So for the past week I would get in my car and it would crank up fine then I’d get where I’m going and it would be a short stop then my car wouldn’t do anything at all when I turn the key over. Now just recently I had to get it checked and anytime I turn the key now it burns the starter fuse up. Anybody know why this is?

Probably the starter. Had similar problem, cold starts were fine. Starting hot was hit or kiss, sometimes had to wait up to an hour or two for it to start... Ended up being the starter, heat from the exhaust manifolds sometimes deteriorates it faster.

Check the wiring or like others said the starter could be faulty. Was it doing this before you changed it?
