blown fuse22, replaced, dead engine
Yesterday I had a really bad day. I went camping to a beach next to nowhere, and guess what. My truck left me once again. I have a 6.0 2003 PSD 4x4 CC SRW. The engine died because a blown fuse. I checked and saw that was fusee 22, Engine control. I moved and checked every single plug, replaced the fuse and prayed. And it worked, for 15 miles... Then, the fuse blew again. It happened when I was driving in sand with some bumps. I replaced the same fuse again and it blew. The third time it didn't blew, but the engine didn´t start. I have full battery. I can't hear the fuel pump working, no sound. When I put the key in "on" position, everything looks fine except there no Fuel pump sound. When I turn it to Run, everything shuts down until I put the key back in "on".
At last, I had to tow my truck with an old Unimog from a fisherman, and then transport my truck on top a ramp.
Any advice on what can this problem be? Where to look? I read that it may be a bad sensor. The thing is there no place where I can connect my truck to a scanner.
Thanks a lot. On monday I´ll upload a picture to show you guys where I was going and how I save my truck.
