Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like you are hooking the battery up backwards. POWER goes to the fuse panel. Not ground!

THERE Is not a main fuse there is a few maxi fuses in the fuse box underhood. Possibly fried the whole electrical system. like the computer,starter could be damaged

I would replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector, both have problems in this year that cause excessive current draw and blow the fuse and overheat the system. If the relay socket terminals are discolored from heat that must be replaced as well. Of course before replacing any parts have a GM dealer confirm the problems i have guessed are to the cause.

You would be correct. The tipm is typically not serviceable. I do believe that on the 2010, you will need to return to the dealer or any other shop that can "flash" your ECM once you've replaced it.

MODULE-TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER
The Totally Integrated Power Module (2)(TIPM) is a
combination unit that performs the functions of the
Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control
Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based
module that contains fuses, internal relays and a
microprocessor that performs the functions previously
executed by the FCM. The TIPM (2) is located in the
engine compartment, next to the battery (1) and connects
directly to the B+ cable (5) via a stud located on
top of the unit. The ground connection is via electrical
connectors. The TIPM provides the primary means of
voltage distribution and protection for the entire vehicle.
The molded plastic TIPM housing includes a base and
cover. The TIPM cover is easily opened or removed
for service and has a fuse and relay layout map integral
to the inside surface of the cover. The TIPM housing
base and cover are secured in place via mounting
tabs. The mounting tabs secure the TIPM (2) to the
battery tray mounting bracket (3).
All of the current from the battery and the generator output enters the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) via
a stud on the top of the module. The TIPM cover is removed to access the fuses or relays. Internal connections of
all of the power distribution center circuits is accomplished by a combination of bus bars and a printed circuit board.
For complete circuit diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information includes wiring
diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention, connector
pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.
