Ok that indicates an issue with the coil driver not sending a ground signal to the coil. With the coil new need to verify you are getting an pulse to the coil. if not either the pcm is bad or the wiring inbetween the coil and pcm
Ok do you have a noid light to plug into the coil and see if it pulses?
A test light would be better to see it flicker by hooking the lead to the positve battery terminal and the test light to the ground terminal on the coil and watch it flicker if it is sending a ground from the pcm. if not its most likely an issue with the pcm
A digital multimeter wont show the flickering on and off fast enough
yes a 12 volt test light or you can rent a noid light for free from most auto parts stores, you leave a deposit and get the money back when you return the tool. Pugs right into the coil electrical connector. just crank it over. if it stays on all the time, the pcm coil driver is shorted on and most liekly a bad pcm as long as the two wires from the pcm to the coil arent shorted together. If no pulse. Would have to go back to the pcm pins for the coil and see if it pulses at the pcm, if it does, you have an open wire between the pcm and coil and can run your own wire inbetween both. If no pulse at the pcm, the pcm is bad and would have to be replaced and reprogrammed and need 2 pats ignition keys reprogrammed to the pcm to start the vehicle
Compare it to a working coil
