Note the diagram. See the power point and cigar lighter, is that what your talking about? The top wire to component is voltage, bottom wire is ground. As you can see, the cigar lighter gets voltage from a fuse.
do you have an auxiliary cigar lighter or power outlet? Usually located in the console. The ECU power circuit is routed through the cigar lighter or auxiliary power outlet. disconnect auxiliary power and check again.
sometimes these are on a circuit breaker check with a test light for power in the center of your socket then be sure to check the ground if no ground or power always go back to source this circuit may even have a relay
I think it has another fuse other than cigar lighter. Accessories, maybe? Not sure how many fuse boxes that car has. But on my bosses truck it was a circuit breaker fuse under the hood. That blew. So I would look for something like that. Or a fuse box on passenger side. I hope this helps. But to answer your question, it isnt hard to get to. Most everything on cars snap on. There may be a screw or two somewhere holding it. But it snaps off straight. Be easy and slow work it a little at a time. So it wont break.
First off the reason for instant fuse blow is because this is a positive wire grounding out or touching/crossing a grounded surface. I would first target the Cig lighter outlet connections also if the outlet is rusty inside looking, replace it.
