FINAL PHASE: 95.5 S6 Blowing ECM Fuse

Went to Radio Shack and bought a multimeter. This is now personal. Peristence
paid off with the avant's tailgate trim and I am hoping it'll payoff with the
ECM fuse problem as well.

In Bentley J28-25 (Vol 1), there is a protocol to check voltage supply to the
ECM. It asks to connect LED tester between pin 18 (+) and ground pins 10, 14,
19 and 24.

I set my multimeter to Continuity tester mode. I put the red wire on pin 18
and the black wire on 10, 14, 19 and 24 one after another. Basically, 10 read
Open and the rest read Short on the multimeter.

I also tested the same pins on the connector and they all read Open.

Does the Continuity Mode of the multimeter accomplish the same function as the
LED Tester US 1115 where the LED light turns on with each test?

Is my ECM toast? If so, what's the best way, get it fixed or replaced? Where
would you recommend I call?

Thanks in advance everyone!!

So, is the ECM shot.
