Sounds like you have an electrical short that is causing the fuse to blow upon startup. Check your wires for cracks or breaks and make sure any negative contacts are tight.

1999 ford super duty relay coil keeps blowing fuse. truck wont start. why?


Some of those trucks had a heater coil in the fuel filter bowl. It would short out and blow the fuse . Try unplugging the wire just behind the bowl ,and replace the fuse again. that may fix the problem.

Where is ecm on 95 gmc jimmy


The ECM on the jimmy, is located on the passenger side fender well by the overflow tank. But before replace the ECM, inspect the fuel pump and fuel pump relay. The ECM sends power to the fuel pump relay and if the relay has gone bad will cause the fuse to blow which will kill the the power to the ECM, in turn kill the electrical power to the ignition system.

Start by removing the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay and see if the fuse will blow again, if is does. Disconnect the fuel sending unit wire harness at the frame and see if the fuse blows again, if the fuse stays good. Chances are your fuel pump has gone bad or the fuel filter is dirty/clogged causing your fuel pump to draw more amp and will need to be replaced or the wire harness from the frame to the sending unit has a short which is common on older Jimmy's.

Here is a link to the electrical harness throughout the Jimmy.

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...


i
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.

Just recently bought a 2003 Mazda RX8. Everything fine until I came to set of traffic lights about 10 miles from home and the engine stalled and I could not re-start it. Got towed home and then tried the...


You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.

1991 chevy cavalier- stopped running going down road. Replaced fuel pump and fuel pump relay-ran for two weeks and the when making a stop,cut off again and won't start and is blowing the fuel pump fuse...


Sounds like a short between the fuse panel and the fuel pump relay. This can be from the fuel pump relay itself through an exposed bit of wire, or even a defective relay which seems to happen more than most times. Check the wiring to the relay and wrap or tape anything where bare wire may be exposed. Disconnect relay and try a new fuse. IF the fuse doesn't blow, then the problem source is the relay itself that is defective.

Hope this helps!

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.

Fuel pumpfuse keeps blowing


Disconnect the batter. Under the hood, you should find a fuse/relay box. There you will find a Fuel Pump Relay. The back side of the box lid will have a diagram (should have) that will indicate which one is the Fuel Pump Relay. Replace the relay and try again. If the problem persists. you may need a new fuel pump. Some vehicles are equiped with a "secondary' fuel pump, usually located near the back of the engine, mounted to the frame. This one will be easier and probably cheaper to replace, vs the one in the gas tank. In my experience, even with a plugged fuel injector, an engine will still start and run, just not as smoothly. Also, check all your spark plug connections, battery connections, and starter connections. Do this with the battery disconnected. This is just a way of making sure all connections are good, in the even that is the problem. You can do this before purchasing any parts. For your battery, you can put some terminal grease on them to prevent corrosion, rust, and acid build up; a common cause for faulty connections, resulting in such issues.
I hope that this information was useful, and aids in the successful recovery of a healthy running vechile for you.

Keep blowing fuse for fuel pump


If it takes more than a couple of hours to blow the fuse its most likely the fuel pump. If it blows instantly you could have a grounded out feed wire (+) wire or a bad relay. Look in the haynes manual to get the location of the relay.

No start


have you tried replacing the fuse on the overload protection relay? This is located behind the battery, behind a thin plastic sub panel which houses the relay and other electronics. The relay is about 1 1/2" square X 2" tall, and has a flip cover to get to the fuse or fuses. Some models have a single 10A fuse, others have two. You might check these before going to much further. I have found that by jumping the car, you can blow the fuses, and very possibly the OVP as well. Good lock!
