If their is a short in a wire that is leading to the ECU isn't that also going to feck the new ECU also if you change it.

Sounds strange, a 30amp fuse protecting the ecu, should be around a 60amp for ecu. It COULD BE an ecu fault but i would be doing a continuity/resistance test along the wire and make sure it's deffo not just a broken wire or short to live/earth.
