This is the short (no pun intended) of a long story. One day, my van (b250 with a 318) wouldn't start. It would turn over nice and healthily, but no start. Towed it home and over the course of a month, I have replaced the ASD, the throttle unlock and the starter relays; replaced a (blown) fusible link with a 40 amp fuse; the ignition switch and the fuel pump. Right now, it will run with the throttle unlock relay removed. If I install the relay, the previously mentioned fuse blows shortly after the ignition is moved to the on position. Should I drive it like this? This is my service vehicle and is direly needed. If I determine to run down the short (assuming that is the problem, where do I start looking? What does the throttle unlock relay actually control?
Thank you for any help/advice you can offer.
have the same problem?
