I have a 95 impala ss and was driving yesterday and all of a sudden i get a steady check engine light, car seems to be running on four cylinders bogging down. Ok so i take it to the dealer and get the code pulled and its a wiring issue with the MAF sensor I guess i had a break in the wiring somewhere so the guy made another wire, light goes off ect. Ok so he pulls the car around and I get it find out that the car is still feeling like it runns on four cylinders. I had a local forum member said that the car may be in limp mode. Told me to disconnect the PCM fuse turn the ignition key on let it sit for about five or so min and then put the fuse back in and crank it up. Ok i did that still no luck? I'm lost what could it be? Also no CEL

DAMN FUSE BLEW AGAIN SAME ONE????????????? WFF, any ideas
Before you condemn a fuse consider this: That fuse is not at fault - it is doing its job. It is blowing because there is excessive current or a short. Fuses are very cheap and simple protection for parts that are very expensive and complex. Finding why a fuse blows can be frustrating and expensive but don't blame the fuse - they are your friend.

ya that's true but i meant what is the problem for the fuse to blow
fuse will blow when more then the specified current is pushed through to it.

be lucky your fuse is poping and not dmging anything else thats not 0.05$ to replace.

however you could have a short circut, bad ground,bad wire ect....

this is going to be a PIA!!!

start checking EVERY wire you can see.

If it was the MAF harness that caused the first issue then I would start there. Maybe they used a wire is causing more current to be passed..? Maybe just get a new MAF harness.
