need help blew the number 22 maxi fuse wont start

got a 96 7.3l and i went out to start it today and turned the key on and waited for the wait to start light went out and i cranked it and it didnt start. so i shut the key off and went to cycle it again to run the glow plugs again, and nothing.. the check engine light and wait to start light didnt come on. i checked all the fuses and the one furthest from you in the middle row number 22 maxi fuse is blown. so i swaped it out and it blew again. whats goin on? any ideas?

mine has a big plug on top and I cannot get it unplugged. Unplugged small wire on bottom but still blew fuse so I am thinking it is top wire. How do you unplug it? Looks like it twists with a tit catch on it.

finally pryed top wire off with screwdriver. Truck started up and no more blown fuses. Mine is a 97 and the wires are on the drivers side of the bowl and hard to get to, but dooable. Will replace heater though, when economy gets better.
