Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating.

With connector unplugged you should have 0 at middle wire. Plugged in it should vary 0-12

Do you have a scanner? Do you have RPM on scanner while cranking?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
on the scanner no it showed nothing but could have cleared it because it showed an o2 S problem . I replaced bolth of them. No on the RPM If the question is it cranking fast .yes . Is the middle wire not a ground . It checks as a ground
Chevy Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you have an RPM reading while cranking?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the rpm gauge on the dash does not move when I crank it. More history on the truck; the truck misfired for the last 25000 miles. Then the truck got harder to start in the last 2000 miles, after sitting. Once about 2000 miles ago, the fuel pump quit. Put a new one in. Truck got harder to start after sitting for a few days. Then would not start. Could hear the fuel pump for the first few seconds so checked spark and have no spark. Assumed ignition module was the problem, so replaced it. No difference. So have been researching and have been told how to check the crank sensor, but the old sensor and the new sensor check the same. Still no spark with the new sensor in. My question is, how do I check the crank sensor to see if I'm checking it correctly.
Chevy Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you have a scanner with RPM data on it? Check for RPM while cranking.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
We have a Innova Scanner but can't figure out how to find rpm cranking data.
Chevy Mechanic: Tool Hut, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Does it have a data list? There should be RPM or engine speed parameter. See if you have a value while cranking.

I can not find any thing that gives me a R P M reading . I put the scanner on it while cranking And nothing came up
