By ventilator do you mean a fan or a motorized hatch? It could be a short or it could be a frozen mechanism that is overloading the fuse. You could use a long jumper wire from a good 12v source, put an inline fuse in the wire and try hooking up the 'ventilator' directly. If it still blows a 15 amp fuse, you know it's not the wiring but the ventilator.

Short answer (Pun not intended) is likely yes.

I would inspect the wires in/at the vent itself, since that involves wire, sheet metal and vibration,, A recipe for a short.
