Check for short to ground in wiring
you can also check current draw of pump and supply voltage to pump at pump end should be battery voltage
also check and clean earth circuits

Why is the pcm fuse blowing in 2006 gmc yukon replace fuse car starts but shuts off in a few seconds and blows the fuse

Click on the link.
The only pcm fuse I saw was pcmB fuse. It supplies voltage for both the pcm and fuel pump. Usually you suspect the fuel pump first. Can I guarantee the fuel pump is the problem, no.

How do I stop my efi fuse from blowing repeatedly. Just changed the fuel pump and now that fuse keeps blowing.


What about your fuel rail regulator, which is in the tank with the fuel pump on some cars? Does it have a pressure switch/sensor that isn't telling the engine control module to shut the pump off when the rail pressure is obtained? If you turn the vehicle to on (not start) and the pump runs more than a couple seconds, like until the fuse blows, it could be either a stuck pump relay or worse, the fuel pump control signal. Pull the pump relay, add a new fuse and see if the pump runs with the key in the on position again, which it shouldn't. If it doesn't run, the issue is either the relay, or the control signal to the relay that is keeping the pump on all the time, causing the fuse to blow.

It sounds to me like the pressure is going to high and stalling or slowing the pump causing excessive current from the motor and blowing the fuse. If that's the case your old pump might not have been the problem. How's the fuel filter? That's in line with the fuel line to the fuel rail?

You don't have to answer the questions, just look into them for your own peace of mind.

Fuel pump fuse


short to ground likely on fuel pump circuit.. trace from tank up frame rail to PCM.. you probably pinced it though when you replaced pump so look carefully at wiring at between tank and body

Fuel pump fuse blowing


replace the fuel pump, it is drawing to much current, this is common when the pump bearings get worn out, also make sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank connection, it will be burnt..
