Fuse # 41 Is battery power for the PCM - powertrain control module , through the PCM power relay an it also powers the heated O2 sensors , vapor management valve , evaporative emission canister vent valve ! You have a short on one of these circuit's . Check the wiring harness an see if it is laying on an exhaust manifold or pipe ! If there isn't power to the PCM it is not going to start !

SOURCE: E.E.C fuse keeps blowing in 1991 Ford Explorer

if you replaced fuel pump i would look at backward wiring when replaced and i would start at the source of work if your vehicle was working fine before replacement then 9 out of 10 it will be your fuel pump wireing

sometimes when putting wireing back together the connectors have the missing clip and in turn you can turn the wireing in both directions now where positive is touching the ground on both sides of connector kris kross problem check your work this is crucial use a test light to find the right wires where they go

Easy Fix! I know exactly what ur talking about, had the same problem for ******* ever, and its not the fuel pump, trust me!!! and it will cost you absolutely nothing to fix! I don't know what the hell they're called exactly, but on the right side of your engine there's a black box, next to where you put the coolant in, with fuses in it. They look like one inch cubes and will say Ford right on top. One of them is for the fuel pump. Try switching it with one of the others, or just switching all of them around and ur car will fire up, but the one that's not working will cause something else not to work properly, but at least u'll now what the problem is. Than just do what I did: take one with you and go to a junk yard and pull out a bunch, they're the same on many ford vehicles, even the newer ones, like 2000, not just the explorer. Make sure its the same one, pull out a bunch, put em in ur pocket and leave without paying, nobody will notice anyways, but they're tricky to find at a parts store, surprisingly. When ur car is running beatiful again, come back to this post and tell me if I was right! God knows how many ours I spent in that car stranded, waiting for it to fire up. Sometimes it'd be 5 minutes, sometimes an hour, sometimes hours, even days. Never knew when it would or wouldn't. Thought is was the starter too! If it works, tell me!!!

Look in the owners manual and see if they have a circuit breaker or relay instead of a fuse. It could be bad and you would not see it.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.

the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

My 2004 ford explorer keeps blowing the ignition fuse also i noticed that my windshield wipers also stopped working


You have a short to ground on that circuit ,the only way to find it is to find a wiring diagram an see what all gets power from that fuse .Then isolate each circuit until the fuse doesn't blow any more . Go to youtube an check out some videos on finding a short on automotive wiring . Also I suggest you check out some videos on basic automotive electrical trouble shooting . Finding an fix automotive electrical shorts is best left to a automotive electrical repair shop !

Radio shortage on a 2001 ford explorer sport trac can it fry all the electric system including the main computer


it could be the theft device. they have been fitted to most top of the range vehicles. they supposed to turn everything off and blow the chips (radio and ecu). but some dont they just mess with the electrics. you going to have to replace the radio and re- pair it to the system to fix this. until then it will keep making things stop working. after the radio has be fixed replaced the ecu is going to need re coding. flash firmware. ford are one of the first to use this in some of there models you can have this feature turn'd off but you will need to replace the alarm and immobiliser to type that dont have this feature. its supposed to be easier to catch a thief. it also is supposed to cut the engine in an accident so you can not just drive off.

2002 Ford F250 Super Crew V10 driving down the road today and my radio dies, no clock, nothing, so I try all the other electronics and power windows won't work. I checked fuses for continuity and all...


this may help bud, circuits are related, instrument cluster microproce, to acc. relay, to windows and radio...check underhood fuses(central junc. box) real good. I had a few of these in with shorts left footwell(driver's side) below e-brake area, under carpet. Fuse 41 10amp was the one on my end.

02 ford explorer fuel pump fuses keep blowing on me


You only replace, any fuse once

Then you get a wiring diagram
of that circuit, and start to diagnose
the possible cause

Do you have fuel pressure?
Can you use the truck at all ?

2004 Ford Explorer XLT -4.0 L V6 engine with 77K miles: Symtoms: hard to start...seems like engine doesn't catch. Changed battery and will now start sometimes, but very difficult. Engine doesn't seem...


First check for vacuum leaks. But your symtoms lead me to think that your catalitic converters are clogged. next time you start your engine check the pressure coming out of the exhaust pipe. there should be a decent amount. put your hand over the end, it should feel like it wants to blow it off. Have someone rev it up, and if the pressure doesn't increase alot then it's your converters. Another sure way to check is to remove an 02 sensor in front of the converter. If the engine performance increases, thats the problem.

Radio stops working. Why does the fuse keep


First is that the stock a radio. If it's an aftermarket disconnect any amplifiers, also if there's a power antenna disconnect that sometimes they become jammed. If you still blown fuses disconnect the radio and check to see if it's still blowing fuses. If not get a wiring diagram and find out what other things are on at circuit. It's a simple process of elimination. Good luck with that.

My battery died, husband replaced it. Everything


some cars have a radio theft system that requires a code be enter to make the radio work if it is totally without power ( as if some one removed it from the car) you might want to call ford and see if your car has this system in it.
