View Full Version : blown out fuse problem resolved... but still

08-31-2008, 05:02 PM
Ok so I got a CEL about 1-2 weeks ago but the car was running fine except it was in limp mode. I went to my local garage so the mechanic can pull out the codes for me. Got about 13 codes almost all related to short to ground. Then I searched and got this : http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=229452&highlight=short+ground
As said in that thread, I had a blown fuse, wich I replaced. Car went perfect for 10 minutes then the fuse blew again.

Idle is a bit irregular but no too noticeable.

Any ideas?

maybe do the relay and see if that is causing it?

Was the fuel pump relay your problem??

I don't think so. My problem was I must have pulled the fuse like a dumb ass and didn't replace it in the right spot. When I checked my panel there wasn't even a fuse in that location.

Try the relay it is only $35.

which fuse are you blowing? If it is emissions related you will have to one by one disconnect the sensors till you find which circuit is causing the short. My first one to check would be your evap sensor. You'll still get a code for it but you'll find out which sensor is either bad or shorted out.
