i do. DMM

At one of the injector connections see if you have power on one wire with key on at all times, at or near 12 volts DC.If you do see if you have a ground pulse ( off/on rapid signal) when cranking over the engine at the other injector wire.

Let me know when your ready.

Thanks Pete

I checked for power and have 13 v at injector. Checked continuity in between other wire and ground and it stayed at 35k ohms. No pulse.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
12v not 13

O.k. so no ground pulse.

O.k. at the fuel pump relay test for these signals and let me know what you come up with here

Orange wire 12 volts at all times

Black/white wire ground at all times

Dark green/white wire ground with key on the first two seconds or when cranking

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Orange has 12 v
Blk/wht ground at all times
Drk grn/wht has no continuity(very high resistance) to ground at any time

O.k.,at the engine computer test these wires for the signals shown

All black/white wires ground at all times

Pink/black wire 12 volts key on

Orange wires 12 volts key on

Ok. I will need to remove glove box correct?

Yes it should be located behind the glove box on top of the heater box

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Pink/black 12v key on
Orange 12v key on
Blk white 17 ohm resistance to grnd between wire and batt.

O.k.,the PCM/ECM has failed causing this issue.You have the correct power and grounds to it but it is not energizing the fuel pump relay or sending ground pulse signals to the injectors.I have seen this occur before and the PCM/ECM has to be replaced.Make sure when it is replaced you remove the PROM chip from it ( remove the access panel on top of the PCM ) and place that chip in the new PCM/ECM.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
