Looking to buy this vehicle. But before I do I would like to know whether it is worth it. Complaint is that the Electronic Engine Control fuse keeps blowing, Owner says it is a short. Anyone ever have this problem? If so, is it an easy and cheap fix or would it not be worth the money. Asking price is 1900.

Do you
have the same problem?

Without testing the electronic componenets there is no way to prrdict if the pcm or wiring is at fault.

If it's the PCM, you should be able to get a rebuilt or reconditioned one relatively cheap. You should also haggle the price way down. Check the power lead to the PCM after the fuse for any cracks or breaks.
