    I'm no electrician, but the blowing fuse means that you the current flowing over it is too high. In other words, something is drawing too much power over the circuit.

    Check that the LEDs you installed do not have some silly-rated resistor fitted, which could be causing the issue.

    If the boot open indicator is flashing, then check the boot lid switch to see if it needs replacing.

    Agree with leshkin, check the boot switch, it's probably got some moisture damage. Could be a bad earth somewhere too?? Could be worth checking the main earth point under the battery

    Why not remove the leds 1st & see if this makes the issues go away, then attack the problems if still present.
