Something most likely will be shorting to ground, the "fun" part is locating what or where is shorting to ground.
The following video maybe of help: http://youtu.be/TZrCrBx4uFY" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
He uses a special circuit breaker and test light to not waste a load of fuses trying to locate the issue. If you want to embark on finding the short yourself and need the wiring diagrams, then post up the last 8 digits of your vin, and one of us with Sedre should be able to grab the right ones for you. (Unless its an x7, as if I recall those diagrams don't show up properly in the current version of Sedre)
