Hi, i have seen this problem before, i am a trained ase mechanic who works in a shop weekly. in my case, the suburban was a 91, it started by blowing the fuse randomly, then as it got further along, the ecm b fuse would blow consistantly as you describe. I found the problem to be in the wiring harness between the fuse block and the electronic control module on the pink/black power wire. It had become hot next to the radio and the insulation had melted into a direct ground to the ecm. then as time passed, it melted six other wires till it hit battery power. this is when it shorted the fuse all the time with key in or out. You should start by checking behind the glove box at the wiring harness going into the ecm, if you can get a schematic for the wiring, it would be better advised. See if you can find the Pink and black stripe wires(there maybe several of them as they power everything from egr solenoid to oxygen sensor possibly) and look for melting of the insulation. If you do find this to be the case, technically you should replace the whole harness, but it is possible the cut and splice in new wires. If any other wires are affected, you should replace these also. Check the whole length of the affected wires, they may have shorted all the way up or down. If this sounds like a big deal, it is! so, good luck, hope this helps.

2004 Pontiac Montana a/c fuse blows as soon as u put it in . Blows hot air only


If the fuse blows as soon as you turn the A/C on, the compressor clutch has failed (shorted). Simple repair.

If the fuse blows as soon as you put the fuse in without the A/C on, you have a physical short in your wiring.

Will not start and checked fuel pump no power to fuel pump i also have blown fuse for ecmb that blows as soon as i replace it


ECM B fuse supplies a constant 12v hot at all times to the VCM/PCM and to the fuel pump relay. The fuse is blowing telling you that there is a short to ground somewhere. Try this, take the fuel pump relay out and put a new fuse in. If it doesn't blow put the relay back in and if it blows then try a new relay. The relay may be shorted to ground internaly. Other wise you'll have to trace the wires to the VCM and the pump relay to look for a chafed wire that's contacting metal. The wire coming from the ECM B fuse is orange and has a splice in it going to the pump relay and the VCM/PCM.
Hope this helps.....Andrew

No power to fuel pump and the ecmb fuse bows as soon as i put it


Unplug all wires to the distributor, coil, fuel pum and injectors, then see if the fuse blows, if it does, sounds like an ECM failure.
