Tested wire from fuse 13 to harness pos 24. Full continuity. Fuse still blows even when ECM is unplugged and key turned to on position. Just another clue.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Fuse #13 power the EVAP Canister vent control and it the fuse is blowing then you may nave either a shorted valve or the harness to it. See the test steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.

Take a close look at the engine harness looking for any place where it may be shorted to ground. You have to have a short to ground if the fuse are blowing.

How do I cancel this question? We found and fixed the problem as we waited and waited for a mechanic's response. Seems my son put a screw in the radiator mount and pierced the harness. I looked and looked late yesterday when I had not received a quick answer. There was no option to cancel. If you can glean anything from this interaction...please ask people if any screws were used to secure anything as this tends to pierce wiring harnesses at times.
