Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. This condition is caused by a wiring issue between the PCM and the ignition coil or simply a bad driver in the PCM. I would start by checking the wiring going to the coil for opens, shorts or melted areas that can cause the coil to fire constantly causing it to burn up. If all checks out good, the PCM will need to be replaced and then programmed using the factory scanner.
