hi joprys1,

there are couple ecm fuses which one blows? do you know, heres wire diagrams for ecm.





Customer: replied 8 years ago.
before i accept, it is ecm b that keeps blowing. so what are the most common reasons, so i know where to start in the morning? i would rather take it easy tomorrow instead of chasing wires. maybe give me some ideas or starting points? that would probably help out the most.

hi Customer,

thats a good thing ecm b controls fuel pump relay circuit, could be relay internal fault, can switch with another relay in relay center to eliminate relay, next thing is oil pressure switch wiring gets hot by exhaust or rubs through, rots out by sensor, causing wire to ground out blowing fuse , this is most common problem.. i'll help you through this as best i can...
