the 15 amp fuse called fuel pump in the under hood fuse box is the fuse blowing as soon as you turn the key ON ?

Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

let me know

Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

if that is correct if you remove the fuel pump relay out of the under hood fuse box will that fuse still blow ?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No
Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

no it will not blow with the fuel pump relay out ?

Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

if that is correct get back under the car and visually check the wiring to and from connector C402 as seen in this picture here

if the wiring looks good unplug that connector if the fuel does NOT blow with it unplugged then the fuel pump itself is blowing the fuse and the fuel tank needs to be removed to replace the fuel pump to correct this issue

Ok I did take that apart the first time I was try to find out what it was and it still did the same thing blow fuse like crazy like I can drive for a few hours sum time and other times it blow left and right
Expert:  Gary replied 7 months ago.

if that fuse blows with that connector unplugged then the grey wire from that connector to the relay is shorted to ground causing this issue if you can not visually find that shorted part of the wire run a new one from the grey wire at the relay to the fuel pump connector 402 in the back

just go to the back of the fuse box and cut that grey wire and shrink wrap it right into the part of the wire you cat going to the relay
