96 Olds Ciera blowing fuses

Wondering if anyone can shed some light on my predicament. I put in a different radio in a 96 Olds Ciera. After a minute or so the CTSY 20 amp fuse blows. I have a wiring harness attaching the new radio, aren't there some unneeded wires I can disconnect so resolve this?

Does the fuse still blow if you disconnect the "harness"? Doing some investigative work BEFORE asking for help will help everyone find the answer quicker.

NO. When the factory radio is in the fuses are fine.

That did not address or answer the question.

Sorry, I misunderstood. The fuse is fine and does not blow if I disconnect the harness. I had the same problem happen when I installed a radio in a 98 Saturn but unconnecting some of the unnecessary wires between the new radio and harness did the trick. Unfortunately I do not know which wires I can disable without losing the ability to use the radio.

And what does it do if you have the "harness" connected but the head unit disconnected?
