Check the fuel pump relay, i am not sure but i think there are two of them. Check the wire harness too, mice may have chewed in to the wires causing a shot in the system. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

1999 Toyota camry. Automatic trans. Blows fuel pump fuse when shifting into drive. Checked wiring. What else can it be?


Robert: According to CarGurus.com: " I agree it may not be your fuel pump. You can access the pump under your back seat, underneath the cloth under there. You will iummediately see the plug and the screws to open the little hatch. My 1986 Camry also has a problem with not getting any fuel and thought it was the fuel pump. turns out I keep blowing my efi fuse so i unplug the power wires to the fuel pump and it still keeps blowing the 51a efi fuse. So we have narrowed it down to being an electrical problem. We think it is a shortage or a bad relay. So do not instantly run out and think it is your fuel pump. If you are blowing fuses unplug the power wires to the fuel pump and try to crank the car if the fuse still blows then it is not a bad pump, if it does not blow then there is a shortage in the wires in your fuel pump. Hope this helps I will let you know exactly what the elctrical problem is in my car once we do a complete run down."

15amp efi fuse blows


It is not related to car being cool down , I think you are having ignition switch on . The EFI fuse goes directly to the contact switchin the EFI relay. Maybe try removing the EFI relay, turn the ignition to ON, and see if the fuse blows.
Doing this, the car won't start, but it might give you a clue as to where the short circuit is located. ... Check the fuse/relay box next to the driver side fender in the engine compartment.

I have a problem with a fuse to EFI toyota corolla 2003


Hi there:
Sounds like to have a fuel pump that is shorted out or has too much resistance, this can cause to much of a current draw and blow the fuse. The EFI fuse supplies voltage to the EFI relay and then the fuel pump.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Engine wont start,efi 15amp fuse keeps blowing


EFI (electronic fuel injection) is a nasty fuse to blow. Unplug EFI module for 5 minutes. Plug it back in and try to start it immediately to confirm a heating short or possible bad module.
