I tested the fuel pump right off the bat by disconnecting it at the manifold it is fully operational.

there is also a strange humming sound somewhere under the hood when I do actually get it started, it sounds like something electrical making the humming sound. I have not attempted to leave the driveway since the symptoms began out of nowhere, besides it will die if I try.

Hi, do you have a scan tool?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that is how I am getting the codes, po320 and po725
Expert:  Jon replied 1 year ago.

Ok, if you go into data display, is the crank sensor signal showing not present when you crank the engine?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'll check it in the next hour
Expert:  Jon replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I'm guessing it will not be present considering the codes you have. If it isn't, check for 5 volts with a meter on the orange wire going to the crank sensor. Also check for 5 volts at the orange wire at the cam sensor. Let me know what you find.

23 on orange wire from crank sensor
Expert:  Jon replied 1 year ago.

OK, that's a problem. I don't have a computer near me right now but unplug the crank sensor and recheck it. If it doesn't go up to 5 volts or very close, try unplugging all the other sensors 1 at a time and recheck. It could be a sensor shorting out that 5 volt supply.

All the other sensors?
Expert:  Jon replied 1 year ago.

Cam, crank, MAP, and TPS look like they're on that orange 5 volt supply. Try unplugging those and recheck for the 5 volts.

I will today and get back to you

Replaced map sensor appears to have fixed problem running fine.

Stalled once at stop light. Other than that, running good. May replace throttle position sensor as well, your thoughts?
