Default 98 stratus problem

I have a 98 Dodge Stratus that keeps blowing the TCM fuse, so far we have replace TCM and ECM. The car did start after replacing the ECM but after driving it a couple of miles it blew the fuse again , this is what happened the first time. Local garage wont look at it so it has become a home project, right now we have all sensors disconnected from transmission and the only thing hooked up is the ECM and it is still blowing fuse. both times the fuse has blown the car was accelerating. Anyone run into this problem or know possible fixes, any info would be greatly appreciated.

Post up in the stratus section, somewhere there may be able to help you.

Sounds to me though like you have a wire harness that is rubbing somewhere, and has finally worn thru, so you get a dead short when you step on the gas.
