You will need to track the short down that is causing this issue, here are the steps you will need to isolate the problem.

It is my goal to give you 5 star service, so please give me a 5 star rating before leaving the site today.

Items on this fuse include: fuel injectors, ignition coil, upstream and downstream Oxygen (O2) sensors, Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) solenoid, Alternator and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Start by unplugging the O2 sensors, as they tend to cause this problem more than anything else. If this cures the problem, replace the O2 sensor.

If the problem is not with the O2 sensors, then it is one of the other components or the problem is in the wire harness. Visually inspect the wiring going to each component. It is the Dark Green/Orange wire that goes to these components.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
