The first thing you should do is to locate the oil pressure switch/sending unit.

It's a single wire terminal with plastic connect sensor from the engine block.


This oil switch is about $30.


This switch serves two functions.

1) provide oil pressure reading

2) disable the fuel pump relay in event of oil pressure loss.

===

When this switch is failing to provide the correct pressure to the ECU. The wiring harness can overheat and eventually create a short.

ECM B blow is because the harness is grounding/shorting.

===

DO NOT drive the truck until you change the oil pressure switch.

After you change the switch,you should spend sometime to inspect the wiring between the fuel pump relay,ECU and fuel pump.


Please post up day on the comment window/page.

I will follow up on it later.


Good luck.

1999 CADILLAC DEVILLE How many ecm's or modules are on this model. Should I disconnect them one by one to see which one stops the fuse from blowing, look at something else first?


The other modules on the vehicle have nothing to do with the PCM / ECM fuse blowing . Looking at a electrical distribution diagram to see what all the PCM/ECM fuse power's up an issolate all the thing's one at a time till the fuse doesn't blow any more . Suggest you check out a few video's on youtube on how to find a electrical short . Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop that has the knowledge an testing equipment to diagnose this problem . Because it doesn't sound like you know much about it . All the other modules on the vehicle have their own fuse . Something the PCM/ECM power's is causing the fuse to blow . What fuse is blowing ? You don't say ? What code's did you pull an what kind of code reader did you use .

Ignition switch fuse blows


Yes the electronic cluster can be rebuilt for about $200.00, it is really a computer and it is self contained.

1996 chevy 3500 7.4 vortec. the ecm fuse blows at the turn of a key


One of the power wire going from your ecm to a sensor or solenoid is shorting to ground. Get a wiring diagram and an ohm meter. disconnect the battery and start checking each wire measuring from the wire to ground. as you wiggle you will see the meter show 0 ohms when it is shorted. These are the hardest and most time consuming kind of electrical problems .good luck

I have a 1990 Chevrolet C2500 Pickup. It keeps blowing the ECM fuse. Its not the ecm, its not the fuel pump, its not the fruel pump relay. What else could blow the ECM fuse?. There is no visual evidence of...


if it is the ecm b fuse thats blowing i would try disconnecting your oil sending unit and see if it still blows the fuse.i have seen the sending unit short out internally before and blow the fuse.if it is the ecm 1 fuse it is either a chaffed wire or one of your injectors shorted.

1997 yukon, keep blowing ECM - 1, 20 amp fuse under hood . I had replace fuel pump a few months back, could it be a bad connection on the fuel pump?


i would check wire harness for bare wire but first i would look under that massive fuse box under hood, i kept blowing air cond relay and i traced it back to corroded connection on that fuse. not saying this is it and i hope it is that simple for you. other than that research exactly what the ecm-1 CONTROLS and search,test,grounds those systems. If i can come across any other symptoms i will forward them to you.

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.

i have a 1998 3500, with the 5.7v-8, and fought electrical problems for eight months now. i believe it is a problem within the chevy van, because a lot of people complain about blown fuses. my fuse was the ecm-b fuse as well, and after cleaning all the grounds and bat. connections, starter connections, and disabling the a/c circuit, on the advice of another poor van owner i replaced the ignition coil. six months so far, and no problems. this might help you as well. mine did not have any visable problems, but he was persistant, so i did it. good luck

I have a lhs 1996 Chrysler. The car wont start and the engine fuze burns out.


I also have a 96 LHS that randomly blows the 20 amp ECM fuse. If this is what you are referring to, the problem may be in one of your ECM sensors. 1-Start by unplugging all ECM sensors (Temp, Cam, Crank, 2-O2, TPS, etc.) and replace the fuse. 2-Crank the starter (the car will not start) and see if the fuse blows. If it does you probably have an electrical problem with the ECM. 2-If the fuse does not blow, plug in only the cam sensor and start the car; it will idle rough and the check engine light will come on. If the fuse blows, the problem is the cam sensor or wiring to it. 3-Continue plugging in sensors one at a time and try starting. When the fuse blows, you will know which sensor and/or wiring to the sensor to check. This process of elimination has worked twice for me.

ECM BATT fuse keeps blowing


That fuse provides power for the fuel pump. Either your fuel pump is blowing the fuse or there is a shorted wire.
