Efi fue blows when switch the key on. I tried disconnecting every component from the fuel inyection system one by one but no results: fuel pump, throttle body position resistor, maf sensor, O2 sensores both, inyector connectors, sparkplug connectors, also one A/C connector in the engine compartment, changed efi relay. Interior compartment fuses ando relays are very hard to reach. I dissasembled the front panel but no suspicious cables.
