use a multi meter to find the open line in the fuse block - once you locate it you can install a 380 fuse which is not made by any one but you can buy fuse sets at radio shack bundle all together at both ends and use butt connectors to secure them into the existing wiring then recheck to make sure open line now reads closed and try to start should work fine i did this to my 98 olds and worked just fine and the chip will never be a problem again
