Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. A short to ground is your only option. Fuse 23 or 25?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
fuse 35 the abs fuse 10 amp The EBCM I install came out of a 2002 Cadillac deville which I think is the same for a 2005 deville but the number on it was not the same .Could that be the problems. I move wires all over the car to see if the light would light but I could not get it to. I remove the air cleaner box And even drop the cradle some tho remove the front motor mount to get to the wires behind it.

If module was the problem fuse wouldn't blow with it unplugged. If fuse blows with module unplugged that points toward wiring. Give me a few minutes to look up diagram, thanks.

Front fuse box or rear fuse box? Fuse 35 in rear is for Body Control Module. I have to step away from computer for awhile, I'll respond later. Thanks.
