2001 Mustang GT Blowing PCM fuse #26

I have an 01 GT that is blowing fuse 26 under the hood. I removed the fuse and sure enough when I turned the ignition key on it shorted to ground. I removed two harnesses directly under the air filter housing, and each one will un ground the circuit. But i dont have a dealers manual and dont want to tear the harness apart.

SOURCE: 2002 Mustang blowing PCM fuses

Ok the 30 amp fuse is the switch side of the PCM relay and the W/BL wire u are disconnecting is the coil side of the relay.So when u disconnect it u are keeping the relay from energizing so this is not the problem.When u unplug the CCRM in the fender u also keep the relay from energizing.
Unfortunatley this could be the worst possible ckt to have a short on because it feeds everything with a 12V feed in the emission system.
It feeds all the coil packs,the coil side of the low and high speed fan relays and coil side of AC relay also in the CCRM.
Now looking at the schematic I think it is possible to narrow your problem down to the coil packs.The other ckts off of this go thru 2 more fuses, fuse 8 and 2 in the interior fuse panel and both of these are 20 amp fuses so they should blow before the 30 amp if the short was after them. Although it could be the CCRM I doubt it would blow the 30 amp fuse because the other feeds there are on the coil side of the relays so that leaves the coil packs.
I would trace the red wire side of each coil pack looking for a pinched wire,they will go back to right side of engine into a square 42 pin connecter.A quick way to test it is to unhook all the coil packs then get you 2 alligator clip wires and a 1157 bulb like in your t/signals. Clip one of the wires on each side of the bulb and hook one wire to power then the other to the red wire pin 24 of the CCRM that u unhooked in the fender(leave CCRM unhooked). Pull the 2 fuses in the interior fuse panel (8&2) then see if your bulb lights. If it does then u have a short in the wiring,if it doesn't then hook each coil pack back up one at a time and see if it lights your bulb.

SOURCE: how do i replace tail light harness with socket in a cavalier 01

if you have a complete replacement harness it unplugs behind the felt in the trunk. if it is just a socket with a pigtail clip wires about an inch from old socket and use but splice connectors and use electrical tape to cover them back up with.

I don't know what #11 goes to,I have been in
electronics for over 22 years and every time
a fuse blows you have a short.
sometimes the fuse panel will tell you what
that one goes to.
Good Luck

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this

You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

I keep blowing the iod fuse

I unplugged the light harness under the hood. No success. I took the radio out and looked at the wiring harness and found some exposed wires. I taped them and no success. I've tried to look over the wires and havnt really found anything wrong. It was alos suggested to me to remove the sensors in the door jams and see if this solves the problem? The IOD sensor is controlling my overhead dome lights, my radio, and my lights under the hood and my PCU port so I can't pull any codes from the computer. Any ideas would be awesome. I'm looking forward to this forum

On 2005 mustang keeps blowing fuse 47 in fuse box under hood I have checked every thing it can find

that fuse could be burning out because of the oxygen sensors. Change them out. See if that takes care of the issue. If not then on the under hood fuse block unhook the black and white connections. Try the a/c again. If it does not blow the fuse, hook one of those back up and see, If they both blow the fuse. trace the red and yellow wire to check for shorts.

Blowing fuses is never an easy direct fix. Its rather a hunt needs some dedication. What I try and do is Figure out what is all on this 40 amp fuse, and one at a time remove something from the system and see if it blows. The key is knowing when it will blow for these tests to work. Keep removing what ever is on the system until it stops blowing a fuse. Then figure out how to single out items on that fuse. Whatever fuse it is the problem is on its path. Check all paths that go to items if no items are easily singles out. Replace as you find ,smash, green corrosion and shady connecters. Looks for heat by finding melted plastic connecters. These are clues. If you have a volt meter, then you will find the problem a whole lot easy, by figuring out what OHMS LAw is for whatever guage wire you are working with and a rough guess on length of known path. Using this you can find smashed and corroded wires quicker. As well as finding a short to ground and even short to powers in some cases. Good luck :)

2001 Ford 350 7.3 diesel. Turns over but will not start. Wait to start light will not come on. Checked fuses under hood. Had the 20A pcm fuse was blown. Replaced fuse and tried again. Wait to start light...

Inside of the fuel filter housing is a heating element, a fuel warmer. It is common for this element to break the spot welds of it's mounting plate and ground out against the housing, hence it blowing the fuse every time you try and warm up the glow-plugs. Take the top off of the fuel filter housing and remove the filter, then look into the bottom of the housing and see if the heater is touching the walls of the housing. If this is the problem you should be able to unplug the fuel heater and have the engine start until you get the heater replaced.

On a chevy traverse i cant get the windows to work. i cant get key out of ignition, and right rear blinker doesnt work

Fuse under the right passenger dash. Fifth up on the right (blue 15 amp). It is called BCK/UP/STOP. All the same symptoms short in wiring harness for the trailer package caused the windows not to function, the right rear turn signal had no power, and the key was stuck in the ignition.
