blows PCM fuse when accelerating

Asked by Sep 19, 2007 at 11:01 AM about the 1998 Ford Contour 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car idles okay, but when you accelerate to about 20-30 mph it will blow the PCM fuse

This is a question for the dealership. Sounds like a bad PCM pulling too much voltage on acceleration. Replacement will be the most likely fix.
