Check your TDC lead to make sure its not broke anywhere and the plug is in good condition, also check the relay next to the AEI unit maybe thats at fault. You cana easily bridge that out to see if it works

No fuse for it, only the relay that sitsnext to it. The relays only there for the over boost switch really so if your not using that its not really needed.
Check if you got power going to the AEI unit, its the yellow wire on the 3pin plug at the bottom
