Question: EFI Fuse blows on start

I have a problem with my EFI fuse where it keeps blowing. I changed the opening circuit relay, to no avail. This all started when my car just shut off on me one night. I was getting no spark from the distributor. When I replaced the distributor the fuse then began to blow every time I tried to turn the car on. The wires leading to the fuel pump do not get hot. The relay in the junction box gets blistering hot, but when I switched this out it did nothing. So I put the new relay in the junction box and just put a wire in place of the fuse in the junction box. The car ran for a week before shutting off again, now not running. I am thinking it could be the injectors? I have an 1990 AE92 Corolla SR5 coupe 4afe.
