the starter will begin to engage in the on position and when arriving at the start position the vehicle will almost start. we have replaced fuel pump, ignition switch, checked relays to the fuel pump, and tightened all battery cables. a locksmith verified that the key is communicating with the computer. the theft light is not on.

We need to diagnose this by checking the basic things needed. Have you, can you, or do you need help checking for ignition spark, fuel pressure , and injector pulse?

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
