NEVER just connect to a wire because someone says that's it. ALWAYS test before making any connections. It is a mistake that could cost you thousands of dollars (I've personally seen it happen). It sounds like you have the wrong wire and may have already damaged something. When you hit unlock, it triggers the internal relay that connects the violet (ground) wire to the blue/black unlock trigger. If the wire you are connected to is a 12 volt +, it will blow the fuse. Test your connections before even replacing the fuse. Hopefully you only blew the fuse and didn't fry the unit or something in the car...
