I need to correct some info the check engine is on with the key on during cranking the check engine stays on I will check the data link power
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Look over the diagram below.

Do you understand how to test each wire for each key position?

The check engine light remaining on while cranking indicates the PCM is not getting a crank sensor signal.
