Oh... I have... many times. It could be several things. Thats why we need to check for a references voltage to the tps sensor when this happens.
mmm. this is it im sure thats the case i will check it to be sure but the car runs fine when its running..new fuel pump too eh..
Ok... let me know about the reference voltage when you can.
I will be waiting.
no im not at the car but i checked it today and thats what happened
Here is a wiring diagram. Lets make sure we are on the correct wires.
THe 3 wires to the tps are
White with green stripe
Blue with orange stripe
Blue with green stripe
SO we have a reference voltage at the tps sensor with the key on when this problem happens but still no communication with a scan tool... correct? And the vehicle still wont start when this happens? Did we check the TPS sensor for the 5 volt reference when it wont start?
When I checked it for voltage, the car was not starting. Thought you might have had a quick answer.
This is a tough one!
Ok... WHat I would like you to do, is check for spark and fuel. See if you have spark to the spark plugs when this happens. If you do, lets see if it runs on starting fluid.
Let me know!
If not, lets at least see if it will run on starting fluid.
Have we had a chance to try starting fluid?
