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 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.

ECM1 fuse 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.

Usually a sign of a faulty pump, or a problem in the wiring between the relay and the gas tank.
You could unplug the harness at the tank to verify.

If the windshield is still leaking use a water hose and run it over the outside till you find the leak, and seal it with windshield adhesive. Moisture is bad for the fuse box. You may want to pull the fusebox out and inspect for damage behind it-melted or burnt wires, terminals, or connectors.
Sounds like you're on top of it. Just stop the leaking and clean up any damage and you should have it. Good luck.

Secondary air injection pump, 01 GMC Jimmy V6


The 30A pump fuse and the 10 solenoid fuse are dedicated. The only other fuse in the circuit is 175A @ the battery. Look under the A.I.R. fuse block for melting around the relay
