These are only symptoms could this cause the ECM fuse to keep blowing and.no crank also scan tool could not connect to ECM.

A: It sounds like you have an electrical issue...

It sounds like you have an electrical issue. Check the DTC connector to make sure you are getting power and ground. A short to ground could be the cause of this concern. It may be possible that the reverse safety switch has a pinched wire somewhere. Try unplugging the sensor to see if the fuse continues to blow. Electrical issues are tricky to figure out sometimes. If you need help with this, I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, determine the exact cause of your electrical issues.
