2004 3.5l vue - PARK fuse blowing
I have a 2004 saturn vue, 3.5L FWD.
The park fuse keeps blowing intermittently. Last time I had this problem it was a bad GM radio, that I replaced with an after market radio. I thought perhaps the issue was the after market radio so I removed it. Still pops.
Sometimes it will burst upon turning on the car in the dark, sometimes it will burst hours of driving later.
I've checked some of the bulbs (tail lights in particular) and did not see anything obvious.
I do not think I have a trailer hitch.
One thing I did notice on my car is that there was some front end damage to the metal bar that runs along in front of the radiator. The radiator is bowed inwards a bit, along with the metal bar and the radiator fan. I'm wondering if the PARK fuse wiring runs around that area? I can't tell by just staring at the electrical diagram.

It does appear the harness with right side PARK/MARKER wiring (index 18 and 19) passes through the damaged area.
The front end stuff - bumper covers, grill, lights, etc. - is simple to remove if you want to take a closer look at the harness. Repost or send PM and I'll email the needed extracts.
If you want to check bulbs first - there are 10 PARK/MARKER bulbs - plus the radio lighting - fed by PARK fuse so you should remove each bulb to inspect bulb and socket.
I try to visit forum daily but suggest you use private messages if in a rush (comes to cell) and include email address for extracts. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.
