Try going around the indicators one at a time to see which if any is blowing the fuse, what i meant by "aftermarket" anything added into the wiring, aram? Etc extra bulbs, indicators??? etc.

You are testing for an electrical fault, so go around the indicators one at a time, remove the bulb and indicate , if it does blow , put the bulb back and onto the next one until you have remove all to find the one giving the issue, when it sops blowing a fuse, it might blow after testing them all, which means the fault is else where, but you need to rule these out first to move on with the search, just a look is not testing buddy, if you are looking for a quick answer to the fault across the internet with a electrical fault it not going to happen, it needs to be done in steps.
