BURNING FUSE #25

2005 Chrysler Sebring • 87,000 miles

I recently replaced the fuel pump but now the car wont start and gets flooded, so I was told the pcm on the vehicle was bad and had it replaced the car ran for about a minute then died then I tried starting it and it wouldnt start so I started to check fuses and fuse 25 was burnt so I replaced it with a new but as soon as I tried starting the car it burnt the fuse again

A simple trick to finding a short is to replace the blown fuse with a pair of spade terminals, then use small jumper wires to connect them to a 12 volt light bulb. A brake light bulb works well. When the circuit is live and the short is present, the bulb will be full brightness and hot so be sure it's not laying on the carpet or against a plastic door panel. Now you can unplug electrical connectors and move things around to see what makes the short go away. When it does, the bulb will get dim or go out.
