Hello, and thank you for chosing Just Answer!

The fuse keeps blowing, because there is a short in the wiring... somewhere..

Anyways, here is the diagram of the system, so you have a better idea where to look for the short circuit.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

TODAY, THE FUSES DIDN'T BLOW FOR AND CODE CAME UP A CODE 1233 &CODE1237 SOMETHING ABOUT AFUEL PUMP DRIVE MODULE STAYING OPEN CIRCUIT STAYING ON WHERER IS THIS FOUND AT?
Expert:  ase_master327 replied 8 years ago.
OK.. the Fuel pump module is the pump itself.. which you have already changed, and proven it is not the problem, because the fuse still blows when it is disconnected.

I recommend pulling the PCM Relay, and the fuel poump relay (one at a time)... first, then check if the fuse still blows..

They are located in the junction box by the battery.. Here is their loactions in the box: (K4, and K163).. Pull 1 at a time then check the fuse again... Start with the Fuel pump relay, then the PCM one... .Let me know what you find.
