Welcome to Justanswer ! my name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you with this problem
does the check engine light up in the dash with the key on ?
can you check in the fuse box if the fuse # XXXXX shows 12 volts on both sides of that fuse testing it with the fuse in place through the little openings in the top of it ?
Hey thanks for helping me out, there was no check engine light on with the ignition on or trying to start it. which fuse is # 7? im assuming the one that says ignition coil meter, there seems to be no fuse there or power
I just looked at it again and it looks like some one rigged up another fuse for that location. It looks like i am getting power to one side of the fuse pins on fuse # 7.
ok power to both sides when fuse is in place. fuse is good.
ok good job
ok can you find the main relay as seen in this picture and unplug it and see if when the ignition key is on 2 terminals that the relay

ok i located the relay and used a test light on it not a multimeter because i cant find it at the moment but i tested the 2 pins that had power and one made it really bright and the other seemed like it had a low signal
ok did only one light up with the key on and then another light up when you turned the key on ?
which was the dim one ?
Im sorry theres actually three that light up. Theres 4 pins on the relay 2 that go up and down and 2 that go side to side out of those 4 pins 3 of them light up one 2 have good current and one of them has low current. if you can understand that haha. trying to be as clear as i can
im having a hard time with my schematics lets see if another expert can help
hang on another expert will replay back to you
ok thats for your help. It seems like the relays are getting power to them and i tried swapping the headlight relay relay with the main because they were the same and still nothing so i dont think its the relays.
ok so i just hooked a obd2 code reader up to it and it starts right up unhooked it and theres no fuel or power so it only runs with a obd2 connected to it i guess. weird.
ok so today i figured out that you dont even need the obd2 code reader hooked up to the plug that it connects to, just the plug itself works. Im guessing that when theres something plugged in to the data link connector its grounding out the ecm so now its just locating the wire thats not getting ground to the ecm or possibly just a bad ecm.
