Check engine codes, loss of power/performance and or glowing bright red in some cases

Ok when I go to get engine codes check they cant hook it up to read they said because of bad fuse. Its acts like it doesnt want to accelerate or as if the trans was slipping

I would fix the fuse then have codes read. Several different things might cause it to act this way and without the codes we would be just guessing. I would hate for you to throw good money at a guess.

The people that checked your codes should know which fuse is bad. Replacing a fuse is easy you just pull the bad one out and plug the new one in its place. They don't cost more than a dollar or so a piece.

Turn your ignition on but don't start the engine. Does the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light come on steady? If so, fuse is good. HTH. -Jim
