If you turn the key to the ON position, is the security light ON Solid? Also, do you have any codes?
The security light is the red blinking light towards the windshield.
When will you be at the shop to check?
I will be online around 9 or 10 am EST. I will continue to help you when I get online at that time.
Your welcome.. Talk to tomorrow morning..
Try this.. Unplug the Bank 2 Cam Sensors and see if it will start and idle. If it doesn't, then plug Bank 2 back in and unplug bank 1 Cam sensor and see if it will start and idle.
Let me know what happens.
That tells me your timing maybe off.
Did you disable the fuel system when you did the timing chain work?
Why did you do the timing chains?
This maybe easier to explain on the phone. Would that be something you are interested in?
See if you can monitor intake timing when it runs for that 10 seconds and can you give me those readings?
The reason the timing is most likely your issue is this. When ever timing chain work is done, you want to disable the fuel system. After you are done with the timing chain work, turn the engine over to allow tensioners to build pressure. Failure to do this it can jump time. Which I think may have happened.
Start and idle only, don't need to step on the gas.. Just try to capture those readings..
Also, are the Cam Sensors you installed from the dealer?
Oh.. After Market Sensors never work right! When it comes to electrical parts, never use after market. Do you have the original sensors still?
Perfect. So it runs with Bank 1 unplugged!!!
Then that tells me 100% your timing did jump when you started the engine. What I would do now, since it runs with Bank 1 unplugged, while it's running, Pull the fuel pump fuse and you will then need to redo the mechanical timing. Once it's done again. Turn the engine over a few times to build oil pressure. Then put your fuel pump fuse in, and start the car and you should be good.
Don't use those after market sensors!! They are junk!
