Sorry have been off line with family issues. Family comes first.

With no codes, and a crank no start with fuel pressure and spark, we need to make sure your injectors are firing fuel into the cylinders. You will need a test light or a NOID light to check for power to the injectors and a pulsed ground while the engine is cranking.

You should have power on the RED wire to any injector and a pulsed ground on the other wire in the injector you are testing when the engine is cranking over with the key.
