The pink wire at the coil is the power feed, is this the wire you checking?

no
Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay the crankshaft sensor as well as the ignition module and the coil share the pink wire for the power feed and the Pink wire gets its power from the ECM 1 fuse (20 AMP) located in the under hood fuse panel. Start with checking to be sure its in place and has power in and out of it.

Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, do you have power on the same pink wire at the crankshaft position sensor as well as the ignition module?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No 12 volts power from crankshaft sensor
Chevy Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay have a look at the enclosed diagram and locate the same pink wire where it comes out of the fuse panel and see if you have key on voltage on it coming out of the fuse panel.
