checked the efi fuse, and the efi relay, and the main fuse. nothing wrong with them.
I didnt test them with a volt meter just visual with the fuses. the relay i swapped out. Dont know how to test the fuses with a volt meter. I checked the ecu fuse in the interior box visually. Both wires were rubbed bare above the connector. I'm sure it was the bolt that holds down the plastic engine cover that cross connected them and shut the engine off.
Does it matter if the engine is not trying to crank at all? Or just turn the key all the way to where it would usually crank and hold it to get the reading from the fuse?
Right now im solo. I could check the volts so i used one of the spare 10A fuses to test and still no start or any change.
yes one had a black with white and the other was white both were rubbed bare.
So your sure i didnt fry the ECM? BTW im now starting to check the ignition switch.
Ok, I checked with my multi meter using the positive and ground with the car and there was 0 volts at all the wires other than the white wire on the ignition switch. Just checking that i am testing the wires right. All the black and white wire that i can see looks great other than the part that i fixed with electrical tape. is it possible that the ignition switch is bad and not letting and volts pass even with the key turned all the way?
Edit: Forgot to let you know the fuel injector 2 closest to the air filter is the one that had the problem.
edit again: i also forgot to mention that when testing the injector for resistance it has 14.9ohms not sure if thats normal but all 4 are that way.
Do you recommend a brand? i dont want to mistakenly by a crap brand just to have to fix the same problem.
Dude thank you for everything. I was just getting ready to leave and my neighbor stopped by and and started checking the ohms on all the fuses on the interior box and found AM2 15amp fuse was blown replaced real quick and know running like a champ.
