Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

vin number is ***** as for tool I have all the tool needed to test electrical systems. I know to check voltage at fuel pump relay and do the jumper wire test to see if it drops below 9 volts while cranking. An if so to test ign black wire for same voltage drop. And yes both tests it dropped to 7.8 volts bat voltage is 12.5 volts. For testing equipment I have a fluke88, SnapOn versus, Lang lab scope

Expert:  Wolfgang replied 10 months ago.

I found the problem in the ecu odd for this year of car. The sodder from one of the dio grew out and was touching another. I have only seen this on much newer car.
