injector fuse

Ok this is the 2nd time my truck started blowing injector fuses. the last time i replaced one injector and it fixed it. i could pull that wire clip off it and it would run so i replaced that one. this time i had both clips off them (89 5.7 tbi) and they would still blow. i had my buddy tow it to my house from the walmart where i sat for hours hearing chevy jokes my favorite was when i was getting winched on the triler pulled by a f250 and winched by a f350 a guy came up and said "thats what i like to see a chevy getting towed by 2 fords." i was like yea well i guess thats what it takes to tow a chevy. anyway i got it home and let it sit overnight wiggled wires everywhere including the door panel because the windows wouldnt work with that fuse blown. and it started. so i guess my question is are the pwr windows on the same fuse as injectors and if so is anything else. i cant see any wires grounding so any help on what is connected to that fuse so i can trace all the wires would be great.also there is a little black box under the seering colum has like 6 terminals on it made by hella that 2 terminals look burnt it connects to where the fuse panel conects to firewall. what is it? i will take a picture when i get home if i get chance. thanks guys.

Re: injector fuse

Well as much as i did not want to do it when it broke down last tuesday at work i had it towed to an "electrical specialist" Lamb & Robinson. they called me on wed to ask me what the problem was i told them it was blowing the fuse and if i wiggle the wires under the fuse pannel it would sometimes not blow it. they charged me $60 for that as a diagnostic charge. then they called me thursday said it was fixed they repaired wires under air cleaner well i had them taped up i said they were taped they told me they were exposed so i guess since i checked it before the tow truck came it was a rough tow ride. they said they were sure this was the fix i said it wasnt because when it was broke at walmart they were in the air disconnected from injectors and it would pop. he then sounded not sure said he wanted to keep it an extra day he would hate to charge me $180 if it wasnt fixed. called me friday said it was fixed they moved some loose wires around under dash it and the fuse didnt pop. they didnt mind charging me $250 to pick it up. well wed. i was getting ready to get my girlfriend to drive it home for me since i bought a new car for work she was sitting there letting it run and i shut the passenger door and it cut off. the fuse popped. i was pretty mad. had my mom call them because i wasnt going to have a chance to at work they tried to say it had been 2 weeks. she called me saying that and i was furious! [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] i called and layed into them saying they didnt fix it they overlooked somthing they called me a liar again. I told them they need to fix it right and not charge me anything extra for it. they want to charge me for everything but the diognostic charge. what should i do about theses losers. I also need to know once again if anyone knows why this would happen. i got a wire diagram off autozone site i am going to try to work on it tomorrow. i am thinking since it was when i shut the door hard it shook somthing so i would assume a loose wire grounding somewhere probly under the dash. i am also concerned about the computer i dont think that is it but i guess it is possible. any one know what i should do about my money though?

Re: injector fuse

theres some site outt here dedicated to catching crooked mechanics. my pops found it a while ago when a shop was dicking me around. he downloaded a document that besically just had blank info about the shop and mechanics numbers and what not. the goal is to fill it out and inform the better business burreau and what not. they can close down the shop and ASE can pull certifications from the mechanics. when we went back to the shop wwith that and asked for the emchics numbers and shop managers info and what not they became VERY conducive to fixing the problems and paying wrecker bills and what not.
