Vehicle was jump started backwards.  Now the ABS pump fuse blows.  Does not blow with both module connectors disconnected.  Still blows with the pump motor disconnected from the module. Part # is 89541-60061.

Thank you for reaching out.  Unfortunately,  we can't do diagnostics over the internet.  You can use a diagnostic scan tool to scan for codes. Or any auto parts store can do it for you for free. After you have it scanned, post the DTC codes here.

When you have codes it is easier to determine where the problem is

Ok, this is a failure of the hydraulic brake booster. There an electronic pump motor relay built int the master cylinder assembly that's my guess. These codes are related to your ABS system and you need to plug in with a compatible scan tool to determine the cause.

C1223 indicates ABS System Faulr

C1253 indicates Hydro Booster Pump Motor Relay Malfunction

C1256 indicates Accumulator Low Pressure Malfunction

Some common failures are:

Hydraulic Brake Booster Assembly

Antilock Brake System (ABS) Control Module. 

Unfortunately we don't service this part. 

Sorry for inconvenience
