If that is the code your getting and you replaced the #5 coil the problem is either the wiring or the pcm. You can swap a coil with another cylinder just to make sure you did not get a defective coil and the next step is to check for shorts, connector conditions, or high resistance in the wiring. Here is a wire diagram, let me know if you have questions. Thanks
