So if you were to replace the fuse and try to use cruise, would it work? If it only blows when you touch the power mirror switch then this is where the fault lies, either within the switch itself (which commonly fail, though usually they just stop working all together or develop 'dead spots'), or the wiring to this switch is earthing out somewhere when you power it. If the latter, have a look at all the wiring leading to the switch to check the condtion of the wiring insulation like has something been rubbing on it and worn through etc.

I'd fix the mirror - don't just replace the fuse - then tackle the cruise problem.....otherwise you are stabbing in the dark.

Ur gonna have to find the fault, sounds like u got a short. Check pinch points and corners, and then inside the mirrors too. Youll have to get a schematic and start tracing wires.
