Default Fuse 32 Blows out (cranks/wont start)

2002 A4 1.8T with 156k miles.
I just changed my oil level sensor and changed all spark plugs (NGK). Car ran fine for 2 days but now won't start. Fuse 32 keeps blowing out. One of the coil packs looked a bit worse than the others. I pulled all coilpacks and turned the key, fuse blows again. Does this mean the issue isn't the coilpacks?

had codes from cheap scanner of
P0117 Engine Coolant temp circuit low input
P0688 ECM/PCM Sense Circuit

Can the Coolant temp sensor be causing this issue?

So I replaced the ECT at the back of the engine block. P0117 code persists. I guess the sensor by the radiator is next. I cleared the codes and now I get P0261 Cylinder 1 injector control circuit low (for each cylinder). It seems the fuse doesn't pop as easily though anymore. Now I get the car to actually start before it pops (get a burning smell near ECM I believe). I need to find this short. All b/c I changed spark plugs...wtf???

Have you pulled the ECM to look to see if you have water damage on the relays underneath the ECM?
