    HI everyone,

    I have a 1996 chevy 2500 diesel, 4x4 (I love my truck)

    3 days ago, i noticed that when I went to start her up she would turn over but she wouldnt start up.

    Trying a second time, I noticed that the glow plug "" wait to start "" light wasn't coming on, so I blew a fuse.

    I replaced the fuse, & she started up no problems.

    Next morning the exact same thing & also today as well.

    The fuse that keeps blowing is the : ECM-B (anyone know what that is?)


    Could it be a short in a wire somewhere, or the glow plug relay ?

    Any help or advice is appreciated .

    Dont want to end up with a mechanic spending 15 hours on this thing.
