There is a direct short in the main circuit. You will have to isolate the circuits by various tests. This is complicated and takes a lot of electrical skills and mechanical skills to diagnose where the problem is. There are several wires that are energized by the ignition switch. The trick is to separate these circuits to pin down which one the problem is in. Have there been any repairs done to the wiring lately? What was the last repair that was done to the car? This can provide clues. Can you remotely run the starter without blowing the fuse? If you have no mechanical skills, then you should take it to a mechanic or certified shop.

do you have any after market electronics? You have too much power loading when the key is turned on? What's plugged into your cig lighter? Wired straight to your battery. Any new electrical work like a starter,solenoid,alternator,battery? Are your interior lights working properly? [Look at any recent work on your car anywhere near wires.] After this you need to start looking at shorts and that requires a code reader or an auto wiring pro. it could simply be a bad relay. Make sure they are clicking .Make sure your switch on the column operates properly. Horn,wipers,lights. Hope that gives you an idea.

You have a short. Open the steering column panels and look for two wires touching or a power tire touching a "ground" or the frame. Look at the engine and look for wires around the coil pack and coils. Look at the starting circuit wires from the battery and look for frayed wires and cables. at the starter and engine ignition relays. Shorts are hard to find. Have an experienced car electrician repair the car if you cannot find the short.
