Hello my name is Scott
Does the car start on its own for a sec or 2, has the fuel pressure been tested?
I can continue or opt out, let me know if you want a phone call.
Hi. 2 things. First is the theft light flashing on the dash when you turn the key to ON? Second have you powered up a bulb from the fuel pump power and ground circuits to make sure there is not high resistance on one of the circuits?
Yes pats system is on that model. And there should be a theft light on the dash that turns on for 3 seconds when the key is turned on, then goes off. If you are not seeing that then you should look into that as your problem. There is an anti-theft module. Make sure its fuses are good. number 6 and 16 in the i/p fuse box.
Hello Ill try to help if I can. just to recap, you have no fuel pressure at the fuel rail after cycling the key to onif you depress the schraider valve? You see no theft or red indicator on the dash blinking even when the car is off and no key in the ignition? Do you have access to a scan tool to check for codes?Do you have more than one ignition key?
Yes need to verify if you have an rpm signal, this vehicle you can check by turning the key to on and making sure the check engine light comes on,when you crank the engine if the pcm is getting an rpm pip signal it will turn off the check engine light when cranking. If all the injectors do no get a pulse I would suspect an issue with the pats system which should set a code as well as an injector code p02xxx for what cylinder like P0201 would be cylinder number one. Need to run a check for codes and communcation with the pcm
No probably the pats system if you have fuel pressure and no fule injector pulse
Hello, following up with you, did you have a chance to have a diagnostic done?
Very good, update me whenyou can
Ok so there are no codes for the pats system but the light doesnt work, you have no fuelpressure or injector pulse?
Its possible if the update didnt take or there is an issue with the pats system now
