    Sounds to be a short to ground somewhere. When you replaced the starter was it the same wire terminal setup, and are you positive you but the right wires to the correct terminals?

    yeah im sure about the terminals. but it didnt have the same setup... i remember one wire being extremely loose on the cylinoid. i couldnt get it any tighter. i stripped my dash and the ecm ign wire was totally burn up. should i get a new wiring harness what should i do?

Hi Nsilguero,

I apologize for the delay in responding.

From your description, I'm leaning toward a timing chain problem, first stretching, then skipping and finally breaking.

If you're getting voltage to the coil and still getting no spark, there is a test I'd like you to try.

Take off the distributor cap and have someone turn the engine over while you eyeball the rotor. Is it spinning?

This going to take some back and forth interaction. Comment me back with the results. We will proceed from there.

Mike

Have you tried to pull any DTC codes. Here is a link for you so you can pull some codes, but you may have a bad Ignition Control Module (ICM) it's around $40.00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it with common tools. The ICM is common to go bad after a few years due to time and corrosion. It's location is under the rotor in the distributor, as it heats up if fails or any changes in the engine speed. Check the wires to make sure there are no damages. Keep me posted be glad the help. http://www.troublecodes.net/GM/

Why does my ECM-I fuse keeps blowing?


Did you check the crank sensor wire, it may be hitting the hot exhaust. does the wire going to fuel pump have a problem and is shorting out. ECM 1 ..... then there are 5 components that this fuse feeds
1-crank sensor
2- all injectors
3- ECM
4- electronic ignition control module
5- ignition coil - check for a bad wire in these areas. Hope this helps.

Fuel injector fuse is blown, keeps blowing. Engine turns but won't catch and start.


if the injector fuse is blown then the car won`t start as its not getting fuel into the motor to fire.if the fuse keeps blowing then you could have an injector/s that is drawing too much or the injector driver in the ecm may not be any good and needs replacing or a used ecm.it could be a short some where in the wiring for the injector system that is going to ground.

2000 Chevy Express keeps blowing ECM-B fuse


you may need a new computer module. you can check for shorts by identifying where the computer module is and following the wires to your fuse box. this may take some time to do. also check your fuse box and make sure it is in good condition and has a cover, no rust, etc. best bet is to get a chilton's repair manual for your vehicle at a local autoparts store. about 28 bucks. especially if you need to do this on your own. this will help give you the correct procedures for identifying and fixing things.

I have a 1993 camaro 3.4 liter. As soon as I turn the key to the on position not all the way to crank over car the ignition fuse #11 blows. I have unplugged the wire harness to the transmission and it...


Is this fuse 11--10 amp under hood fuse block?
If so, I'd unplug your ignition module. With dis ignition, the coil pack sits on ignition module. The end of ignition module that has two electrical connectors, one is a two wire connector, wire colors pink and black, disconnect it, see if fuse still blows? If it still blows and we're talking about the same fuse, at least you know what isn't causing it to blow. I'm trying to make sure we're on the same page about the fuse, according to my wiring diagram?

MY 96 SUBURBAN 2500 7.4L SUDDENLY DIED WHILE DRIVING. AFTER I COASTED TO A STOP I TRIED TO RESTARTING BUT NO LUCK. HAVING HAD THE FUEL PUMP REPLACED BEFORE I KNEW TO LISTEN FOR THAT SOUND OF THE PUMP...


The key is to find out what is causing the ECM fuse to always blow. With just the key on try and see if any codes are set in the ECM. If not, try a new ECM. If the fuse still blows, then disconnect all accessible electrical for everything, including radios, accessories, relay boxes,etc. except the ECM. If the fuse still blows, then probably something wrong with the wiring to the ECM. If it doesn't blow then start hooking up things one at a time until it blows again. Once it blows, that is your problem.

Ecm fuse keeps blowing


just fixed this problem, change your fuel pump module, fuel sending unit shorts out on fuel level swing arm blue wire... unfortinately you must replace it as unit because of the design, fuel pump and tank guage fuel level sending unit are a one peice item, fuel tank has to come out to change unit, about a $ 700.00 repair too... fuel pump module runs about 350 to 700 $ depending on aftermarket or factory, try to find one with a lifetime warranty even if it is $ 50.00 more worth it..labor is about $ 250 to $ 400 depending on shop labor rate... definate problem though I ahve no doubt, common problem on GM... please rate my help, thanks...

Keep blowing ECM fuse on 90 honda accord


I'm thinking the ECM is bad and grounding out, causing the car to blow the fuse. The old gas wouldn't cause this problem.
