Suspect fuel pump may be causing too much draw, it's on same circuit I believe. Have draw tested, or at least check & clean all connections at fuel pump and try, if that fails, replacing fuel filter to reduce possible load on fuel pump may help also.

1996 chevy k1500 has no power to ecm, eng-i or ign-e fuse

Try for free wiring diagrams. Just register your truck and you can get Powerbox layouts too.

With several things not working, you may have a bad relay or larger Fusible link burned out.

I have a 98 1500 silverado . I was driving home this weekend and came up upon a hill and my truck completely shut off , lost all power . Found my ecm-1 fuse was blown . It blow everytime I go to turn my...

Well you have a short and still have to narrow it down.
How difficult that is depends on what attaches to that fuse.
If it is just the ecm, then disconnect that and see if the fuse still blows?
(if you want to stop wasting fuses, you can just use a test light in its place.
If you have a short, the 12 volt light will be bright. If things are normal, then the 12 volt light will be dim because in series it will only be getting 6 volts.)
If removing the ecm stops the fuses from blowing, then take it in and have it tested.

My abs light came on and my speed odometer stopped working and now my truck wont shift

Without seeing the vehicle for myself, I would say that you have blown the fuse for the ECM-B. Check for this fuse in the distribution box under the hood on the driver's side of the engine compartment against the firewall. Since your vehicle is a four wheel drive, it is possible this problem originated from a mud-clogged ABS sensor, mud/debris in the wheel sensors, danaged ABS sensor wiring from off-road use, etc. Fuses blow for a reason, so if replacing the blown fuse with the exact same-rated ampacity fuse doesn't fix the problem, and it blows the fuse again immediately or shortly after replacement, DO NOT use a larger fuse: this CAN cause a fire. If the fuse re-blows, keep digging. The ABS controller may have problems, or the ABS individual wheel apply servos may be bad. The ECM's control everything from the air conditioning to the transmission shift points, so the problem could really be anywhere. Good luck. Sometimes these can be time consuming.
If I helped you, please remember to vote/comment.
