How's the fuel lines/system? looks like you may have a blocked line or fuel filter as the pump needs to continue running and if no circulation back to tank safety procedures kick in i.e. fuse blow.
Hope this helps?

My 2002 f350 diesel keeps blowing the fuel pump fuse every couple of miles. What is causing this? I changed the filter and it made it worse.

the problem could be the fuel pump fuses only blow when they are overloaded ie. if you have a 15 amp fuse & the fuel pump or whatever is drawing 20 amps the fuse will blow,if you are using the right amp fuse the fuel pump is drawing too much power & may be faulty or there is a problem with the wiring, a loose connection or the like.....hope this helps....cheers

I have had the fuse to the fuel pump blow so i replaced the pump and it still does it . so i unpluged the pump and the fuse still blowes

The problem is not the pump but in the wiring. The sensor is connected in series type(remember in school -- series and parallel) and thus is being fed higher current and/or voltage from the battery. Its the wiring which is clamped together. Examine by tracing both leads to the battery. Its insulation must have melted and come in contact with another wire which caries higher current. The fuel pump gets activated the moment you turn the ignition key 2 notches, i.e., the dashboard lights starts glowing and thus turns on the electric circuit in which the pump(fuel) is an essential gadget. So check the wiring thouroughly including the ignition key terminals.........................sodeep

ECMB fuse keeps blowing on a 88 S15 pickup. I have replaced the fuel pump & the fuse block but my fuel pump still doesn't work

Un plug the Computer to see if the fuse doesnt blow now. You may have a short in the PCM or the harness.

Fuel pump fuse night mare

It ended up being a bad oil pressure sending unit, it is in the power loop for the pump. When the oil pressure would come up when started that is when the fuse would blow. A friend who works for a mechanic in town found a diagnosis digram for the fuel pump and that is how we found out that the the oil pressure sending was in the wiring loop for the fuel pump
