: Smog pump blowing fuses in 96 FW

02-20-09, 03:12 AM
I think my smog pump is shot. It's blowing fuses and I checked it out when the weather was warm, so I don't think it's frozen. Does anyone know a quick and dirty fix that will keep my CEL from igniting? I really don't want to buy a new pump. Maybe you've got a spare if there is no way to fool the ECM?

There doesn't seem to be any change in how it runs.

Any suggestions welcome.

Best (and also legal) solution is to reprogram the PCM to eliminate the smog pump. This is authorized by GM, and any dealer can do it for you. However, it is much cheaper to have a programmer re-flash. You can do it yourself if you buy the right cable.
