Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 29 days ago.

hey how are you

1- we need fuel & spark to run

2- if the fuel pump is still running ,are we losing spark ,have you checked ?

I sent you the circuit description and diagrams.

Circuit Description: Crank signal is ignition voltage signal to the ECM during cranking to allow enrichment and cancel diagnostics until engine is running or 12 volts is no longer on circuit. Test Description: Numbers below refer to circled numbers on the diagnostic chart. 1. Checks for normal (cranking) voltage to terminal "C9" or ECM. Test light should be "ON" during cranking and then go "OFF" when engine is running. 2. Checks to determine if source of open fuse or fuse link was a faulty ECM.

Please let me know

Thank You
