Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Computer said output speed sensor no signal
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 9 months ago.

WHERE THE FUSE BLOWING GO IN , YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THE BACK OF THAT BOX AND SEE EVIDENCE OF SHORT CIRUCIT IN THE FUSE BOX ITSELF, ACTUALLY ON YOU IT IS CALLED IPDM ( WHICH IS MORE THAN A MODULE NOT JUST A FUSE BOX

PULL IT OUT AND LOOK BEHIND IT FOR BURNED SPOTS OR ANY MELTING

LET ME KNOW ?
