Thank you for your answer. Had batteries load tested and they were ok. Turns out ignition run 30A fuse is blowing when key is turned to start. Don't know yet what is causing that to happen.....any ideas??

I would look for any short circuiting in the ignition wiring. So probably around your injector pump area. Sometimes motors can blow due to a resistance or short in the motor itself like injector pump motors. I would do further testing. In and around that particular area.

I have a 1998.5 and i had a starter going bad on mine - kept causing the ignition fuse to blow. Replaced starter, no more problems. At least check the wiring on the starter to be sure there are no loose connections - that can blow the fuse as well.
