What make vehicle ? You need to find a power distribution chart an see where that fuse gets it power . Some vehicles have a relay that powers up the vehicle . ford has power hold relay , gm on some models has a run / crank relay , Chrysler has ASD - auto shut down relay , Asian vehicles have a main relay etc... But as long as there is no power to the PCM it's not going to start !
for 1 fuse blown evry so often then you must have a short somewhere, the fact that it will crank and not start is most likely ur fuel pump , had the same issue with getting fuel to start or keep car running, possible that short could be by the fuel pump, the fuel pump is located under the rear seat and if im not mistaken it is on the drivers side rear
Did the engine just quit going down the road? or was it parked and then would not start? Did it have fuel before you replaced the filter? Did you check all the fuses in the fuse box. I think 2 of the fuses is marked ECM, check both Fuel pump relay? swap it with another relay in the fuse box. You should hear the pump come on for 2 seconds when you turn the key on, do you? If not as you are cranking the engine have someone rap on the bottom of the fuel tank with a mallet or block of wood, or hammer and see of the pump will run. If that gets it running, the pump is bad and will need replacement.
I suppose that you mean it starts but doesn't continue to run. And if you try to start it right away it'll just crank. The fuel pump is on in crank but not in run ( maybe ). Find the fuel pump relay in the underhood fuse relay panel and use a test light to cheak the pins for power and ground. First with the test light hooked to a good ground, check to see if it works first ( touch the battery positive ) then touch all the pins of the relay ( removed ) One should be hot all the time ( if not the fuel pump fuse is blown) another should be hot with the key on. one of the others will be hot only in crank ( this is the fuel pump) The last other is ground with the engine running after started. The one thats hot in crank put power to it with a jumper wire and start the engine ( it'll run ) the fuel pump also gets turned on by the oil pressure switch and the fuel pump fuse is blown it'll also not run the engine. But it'll run right after it's cranked and quit
My brother had a similar problem when he started the car to move it ten yards from his drive to the main road. When he went to put it back a few hours later it would not start but the engine was turning over.
He called Green Flag assistance and when the recovery mechanic arrived he told my brother that he had flodded the plugs by running the car for such a short time. He also advised that the car should run or idle for at least five minutes as this is common.
