2004 Tahoe 10 amp brake fues?

Asked by Dec 28, 2015 at 08:25 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Chevy Tahoe LT. 4 months ago. the EBCM went bad and the 10 amp brake fuse on the driver side was blown too (I replaced back then with no luck).
After I installed the new the EBCM, I took it to the Chevy dealer and they programmed the new EBCM. It worked fine for 4 months and yesterday the 10 amp fuse blown again. The brake, ABS and System Stability massage were ON. I replaced the 10 AMP fuse and it worked fine. What do I need to check. I suspect a short some where? I looked every where I thought a wire may touch something however I could not find any. I am worry if there is a short somewhere it may take out the new EBCM?
I have a fare mechanical and electrical knowledge.
I would appreciate any input!

take it back to the dealer and tell them to fix it again..for no charge!!!

Thanks for the reply, The only thing the dealer did was programmed the new EBCM! They charged $150. I bought a genuine new EBCM and installed it myself. The new EBCM still good. I just do not know why would the fuse blow up? Like I said after I replaced the fuse, everything is fine.

If some one would share the schematic for this circuit. That would be great! If I know what devices that fuse feed, it would help me a lot. Thanks in advance,
