Every once in a while my car will quit running and will not restart. When I check the fuses the # 41 fuse is blown. I replace it and it`s good for another couple of weeks. Any ideas?

Does it always die out after you hit bumps or something? Or just randomly?

Certain temperatures?

I belive its with the evap monitor due to the fact that it only runs every once in a while.

It controls the pcm power relay and the pcm diode. And if they had a issue it would blow the fuse immedietely.

Same with the heated o2 sensors and that would cause the fuse to blow out before the vehicle wwarms up because thats when the heaters are on.

So only things left that run once in a while are the EVAP system monitors.

Or sicne it happens on occasions its a wire thats shorting out when hitting a bump or vibration.
