I have a 97 dodge neon, I was driving when the engine just quite so I checked the fuses and found that the fuel pump fuse was blown, I replaced it several times
but it blew again as soon as I turned the key, any suggestions

Do you know how to look for short circuits using an ohm meter or 12 volt test lamp?

Your going to have to get hold of wiring diagrams. The circuit the fuse protects feeds the oxygen sensor heaters, alternator field, PCM, fuel injectors, ignition coils, and the fuel pump. The short could be in any of those items or the wiring.

The short is after the ASD relay because the fuse pops when the ignition is turned on.

Your going to have to unplug each item one at the time to see if the short goes away. If you have everything unplugged and the short is still there it is in the wiring somewhere. That could be a pain to find because the wiring is spliced at certain points, so you can't break the circuits down by disconnecting inline connectors.

Do a very good visual inspection of the wiring. Look at harnesses for chaffing. Check the O2 sensor wiring and make sure it isn't melted to the exhaust.
