I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So I'm not sure who you talked with before but I will try to help if you want.So if you have spark then it's not a sensor problem. The ecm reads the cam sensor to know when to make it spark and activate the injectors.The ecm supplies power to ea injector but they all have a common ground.
My guess is a ground was left off.
But do this, check terminal 1 of the injector harness for good ground and verify that terminal 2 has or doesn't have power pulsing from the ecm and let me know what you find.Thanks

Awe gotcha. Is your other request still open? Or have you accepted an answer from him yet? If so you can post on that message again. But I'm not sure how to get this thread to him specifically.
Let me know if you want me to opt out.
By the way you don't pay anything till you accept an answer. Till then the funds stay in your account
