Do you have a system hooked up? Or custom neon lights by any chance or custom guages like a tachometer or vice versa?
If so and ur running it from your fuse box my old camaro kept blowing the tailight fuse. And it was a 15. No joke, i put a bigger fuse in it, i belive a 20 or 25 and it worked beautifully NEVER had the prob again.

tested terminal d on opti harness reading 34.8 ohms bad opti?
Not necessarily so, if that was the opti harness. Not sure why you are testing there when you said you weren't getting power to the coil or ICM. You need to fix that, first. Power goes directly to the coil from the fuse, loops through the coil and to the ICM.

easiest way I check fuses is with car off use a dvom and set it to audible beep. then set it on the test ports of a fuse. good ones will beep.

Things that can blow ignition fuse #11 . Shorted coil, shorted icm, shorted wire from ignition switch to ignition fuse, shorted wire from ign fuse to coil, shorted wires from coil to icm. Might even be a short in the electrical part of ignition switch, though it's not as likely as the other suspects, as a short there would usually produce other symptoms as well.

Your problem lies in one of those places. You need to look at the ignition system schematic on shoebox's site, then test each of the components and wires the fuse serves.

pulled trans harness from trans put new fuse in cranked right up so basically gotta pull the pan and either look for messed up harness wire or bad trans temp sensor which is inside the manual valve switch thing do they see them at the parts store do you by any chance or atleast a gm part number ?

Might have one at a regular parts store, but you have a better chance of getting one from a transmission parts supply house. Or pm our members dynamic396 or cahall. They both own transmission shops and can supply you with what you need.
