Glow Plug Relay fuse Blowing

Looking for some help, I have 99 Powerstroke, just replaced both batteries and glow plug relay due to hard starts in the cold AM. It worked great for a week. One morning I started my truck, ran for 20 seconds and then abrubptly quit, upon trying to re-start the truck I noticed the glow plug light was no longer coming on. Checked the fuse and it was blown, replaced fuse and the second I turned the key, blown again. Obviously something is grounding out or I have a component somwhere along the line that has gone bad, any thoughts would be appriciated.

Thank you,

Make sure you hooked the glowplug relay up correctly. Also make sue you didnt disturb any other wires. Try unhooking the fuel heater. It is in the fuel filter housing. Disconnect the plug on the back of the fuel filter(cab side) and try it again. They are known for shorting out Good luck and marry christmas!!
