First my power control modulure fuse has blown a couple of times out of the blue but now my Ford Explorer will start but it seems to die while driving and not start right back we hear no noise or sign before this happens

Sounds like a problem within the PCM. Someone with the proper equipment will have to test. If he starts again after cooling suspect a heat issue.


Check around all the connections around and hooked to the PCM Make sure there is no green corrosion present.
