Your computer isn't running if you don't have a WTS.

Most likely, it's a fuse. Most likely it's the fuel heater fuse (#30) and if so, you'll need to unplug that heater from the fuel bowl or it will just blow again.

Check fuses 30-19-22 and ALL others if not.

Could also be a chip connection (if you have one) so, if you're running any kind of tune chip I'd remove it as a test.

Double check your fuese, esp. #22 and #30, and unplug the fuel bowl heater and try to start it. Has your CPS been reoplaced before?
