today i was driving down the interstate, i stopped cause of traffic and it died.
so i checked the fuses and the fuel pump fuse was blown.

it had done that about a week earlier and i put a new fuse and it was fine

now it keeps blowing the fuse after the pump primes. i found that the red wire to the pcm relay and the yellow wire from the relay to the fuel pump fuse are shorting somewhere. could the pcm be bad?

Follow wire bundle back to rear tank and make sure there are no open areas where it could short out on the frame....

Check the connector on top of tank; could be damaged/deteriorated due to water/moisture/sludge
