Check the cooling fan turns freely with the ignition off
On my last 145 Cloverleaf the motor had burned out making the fan stiff to turn, this made the fuse blow.
The motor is quite close to the exhaust manifold at the front on the GTV, and the heat can kill the motor, especially if it is being worked hard in heavy traffic on a regular basis or if the radiator isn't cooling properly due to lost fins.
