which fuse exactly is blowing ? fuse name or fuse number ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Small fuse 15amp fuse in driverside dashboard side. It says is for the ignition. It works for 5 min then i have to replace it.
Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
that should be fuse # ***** in the fuse box
if so that fuse powers the computer and the cam sensor and the ignition module and the crank shaft sensor
all are pink wires
what you have to start with is the crank and cam sensors and the ignition module you need to inspect the pink wires from those 3 and follow them and see if you see any of those pink wires cut or burnt or shorting to ground
the most common spots are the cam sensor under the power steering pump area

The onee from the ignition modules are good. But i didnt check the sensors
Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
check the pinks at the cam and the crank sensors
if those pink wires check out ok its going to be very hard to see what is blowing that fuse as a crank sensor or cam sensor or ignition module failing or the pink wire to the computer could be the issue
they powered way to many things off that fuse to be able to nail down which one

I will check

I have to remove the stirring pump. To check the one from the crank i have to go under the car right
Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
the cam sensor is under the steering pump you can usually see it good enough to visually check that wiring
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Its covered with oil and grime
Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
then if the other wiring looks good then pull the pump to check the wiring
