Please Help 30 Amp Fuse Blowing
Ok, so here is what I've got:
When I replace the 30 amp (the one marked "fuel inject" under the hood) fuse with a new one, I can turn the ingnition to the on position and the fuel pump will prime. All the lights and accessories seem to work fine as well. While leaving the key in the on position the fuse does seem to get a bit warm but does not blow. When I start the truck with the new fuse it will actually crank and run for about 3 seconds, then the fuse blows and the truck shuts off.
1) The Fuel injection diagnostic module does not display any fault codes when the truck is in the on position.
2) I do not believe the ECU is bad as the vehicle would not start and run if the unit was bad, correct?
3) Next, I do not believe I have a grounded wire as I can turn the truck to the on position and the fuse does not blow. If I had a grounded wire the fuse would pop as soon as I turned the key on, correct?
3) This leads me to believe the problem is between the fuse box and the ECU. There are a few sensors located here such as the MAS air flow sensor and the throttle body sensor along with a few others. However, if it were a sensor, wouldn't the check engine light just come on? Not pop a fuse, correct?
ANY HELP WITH THIS WOULD BE GREAT. My kids are dying to ride in the "rover truck" and the weather is great. Thanks.
