Ok - here's the deal. I have a 99 Audi A6 Avant - 2.8q auto

Bought this basket case for the wheels but can't pass up a challenge so here goes.

It has a few problems, all but one I can account for and fix. The one that is pestering me is the consistent blowing of the EMC fuse.

If I unplug the coil pack it does not blow the fuse. I have tried multiple coil packs. Same result. I have traced the wires and nothing looks out of the ordinary.

I gave up and let it sit and have since crawled back to try and resolve this issue.

Has anyone else ever had this issue or any idea where to start?

And and all inputs are helpful
