Question: 97 lesabre transmission problem

When I put the car into drive it doesnt seem to start in 1st gear it seems to start in 2nd, this causes the car to accellerate very slowly until it reaches a suitable speed for 2nd gear.
The fuse #8 under the glovebox was blown and has been replaced, once replaced the car ran fine. Unfortunately the fuse blew again and the problem persists, I am assuming the problem is caused by an electrical component malfunctioning. What does fuse #8 (powertrain fuse) control, what does it go into and how do I find out what is the problematic electronical component?
