Have a look see at the electrical switches, wiring etc for signs of shorts, rodents etc. If you are certain on the no spark part of it, my best guess is a short was created in an operator presents relay, maybe the switch- connector melted. These are not battery dependent ignition, but the common denominators are the op relays, ignition switch etc. If the fuse is blowing instantly, at least it should be easy to narrow down by disconnecting a component /circuit at a time. OP relays are not always accurately represented on IPLs or wiring diagrams for that matter. Yours may have between 0 and 3 of them. they basically are standard relays commonly used on automotive accessories. The 917 # from below the seat may be helpful.
