Engine Con 25 amp Fuse blows

Been awhile guys. So, yesterday morning driving to work and was half way there and all of a sudden car dies. I got power but stays cranking. Checked fuel and no fuel coming out from the line. I thought fuel pump finally gave out. Luckily a buddy of mine was able to tow it for me. Got a chance to check the fuse for the pump and found fuse to be ok. So I unplug the pump and found there is power going to the pump? Went back up the fuse box in the engine bay and I just so happen to come across the 25 amp fuse blown. This fuse seems like it powers the ECU? Can anyone be kind enough to tell me what else gets power from that fuse? This is the fuse inside the fuse box next to the battery bolted behind the fender and its brown. I would greatly appreciate if anyone can lend a hand on this.

I had the same thing happen to me quite some years back and wound up being a short in the swirl valve module where the green and brown vacume is. I believe one either the green or brown does the egr valve too. If you need a fuse once you get the issue sorted I may still have a couple.

Sorry guys I took long to respond. It'll blow when going over bumps or sudden turns, weird but true. Turns out I traced it back to the distributor harness shorting out due to the upper rad. hose clamp holder to the timing cover. Fixed the wiring and all is good now.
