I helped him isolate the issue. His turned out to be a bad fuse terminal.



A good mechanic should be able to isolate the short quite quickly.

Thats not causing a blown fuse. I have seen that on a bunch of HVAC modules.

Start by isolating the power from the source F28.

Then determine from there where the short or load is.

Check for exhaust leak near the head. Gasket leaks from the headers will cause a ticking sound especially at idle and will cause a lean code on that bank. It can be a very small leak.
