unplug your fuel heater, on the back of the fuel bowl.......your fuel heater is shorted out and blowing the fuse.

The fuel bowl heater is shorting out probably. Just unplug it and it'll be fine. The cord might need to be replaced but that is a completely different circuit.

Possibly. The same fuse the is for the FB heater provides power for the PCM too. Something on that fuse shorts and blows it, it all goes out.

How needed is the factory fuel bowl heater? - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com
Good little discussion about it. But no more than likely it won't affect anything.
