I've tested the wiring harness up to the plug where it plugs into the bottom for the fuse box, but when I plug it in I get two dead fuses that won't get power, but all the other ones do.
The two fuses are for starting and running the car.
I can use a wire from that fuse to the battery and the car will start but then I won't get any throttle body with the gas pedal.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi,

Which fuses are you not getting power to? Also, there should always be 12v at the larger wire on the starter. The smaller (yellow with a gray tracer) only gets power with the key in the start position.

The power comes from the totally integrated power module (TIPM). Is that where you are not getting power? I ask because the TIPM's are known for connector issues. Because they are small connectors with many pins, they end up breaking, corroding, or being pushed back in, as a result, you get no power, or the power supply fails when a load is placed on it.

Let me know if that is what you are referring to. Also, I attached the wiring schematic below for the starting circuit. I figured you could use it as a guide.

Take care,

Joe
