What Fuse that controls what? Way too little info provided. First i would check the wire from trans to make sure that it is not arcing out it may have rubbed on something other than that check the eaths. Check the reverse switch, and any wires leading to and from the transmission that look as if they're possibly carrying voltage. wiring harness behind the valve cover on a 4.0 is a very common problem area for shorts. i am a master Chrysler, Jeep... tech. i would bet real cash the problem is there. look at the drivers side at the firewall. good luck! I AGREE: check the engine compartment wiring harness- it may be chaffing on the end of the fuel rail near the firewall. reinsulate the damaged wire and zip tie the harness to the one above it.
