PLEASE HELP. Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing! A3 1.8t 1998
So basically as I was driving along (approx. 70kph) the car just died. It had had a funny idle all week (would be at rest, then rev up to ~1200rpm then go back down) was awaiting a vag com cable to scan te car but the day before it came the car died. Have not been able to scan the car so no codes (yet)
ive managed to narrow it down to the fuel pump fuse constantly blowing (#28) before that, the car would just crank, and crank, an crank...)
I am getting a spark, and when a new fuse is put in it starts, idles etc.
i put in a 20a fuse (meant to be 15a) and it lasted a fair while longer...
... But blew.
Please help! I've ordered a new fuel pump relay and will be picking it up tomorrow, fingers crossed that works. Any other ideas?
