Well, fuse #22 is the PCM "relay" fuse which is usually the culprit. The actual power fuse that protect the PCM is fuse #9, 20 amp so check that one.

If you have a chip & it fell out going down the road , it could well be an issue with the PCM .. Does the check engine light come on & stay on (kind of dim) ?

He has already done some of this. Here is a link to his other thread.

I am wondering if the PCM isn't fried. Has it rained lately where you are? You don't happen to have noticed water leaking in through the driver side lower corner of the windshield have you?

Only other thing you can try is to unbolt the wiring connector from the PCM and see how the connections look and probe right there for power.

Try this one:



And here is the wiring legend:


According to the diagram, pin 71 should be a Red wire and that should be the power input to the PCM.

Hopefully this helps.

Glad you got it going again. Gotta love road salt. Although I would take the salt over the brine solution the state has started using on the interstates around here. Nasty stuff.
