    Hello ronjohn. Im Riubert, I have posted a treath I would like you to take a look and help me if you can. this is what I wrote:
    The ECU fuse blew on my Kia Rio 2003 tow days ago while I was driving and the car died. I replaced the fuse and drove for about 2 more km and it blew again, now as sun as I install a new fuse it blows up. Could any body out there tell me what it could be, what to check first and how? Im an industrial electrician but I haven't done any work in a modern car ever. Im originally from Cuba and cars there are very old, simpler and different.
    I got the wireing diagram and I desconnected all the components fed by that fuse(ECM,TCM and Alternator and I stell have 12V on the fuse terminals. it looks to me that is a short in the wireing but I would like to know your opinion. Thank you.
