Ford Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago
Can you try the following:Perform all testing with the engine in the no start, no spark mode. Unplug the spark output (SPOUT) connector near the ICM and look for spark to return. If spark comes back after the SPOUT connector is unplugged, check the Red (R) wire of the Idle Air Control (IAC) solenoid or an accessible fuel injector for battery voltage with the ignition switch in the run position. If battery voltage is present on this circuit, check the Orange/White (O/W) wire at the Throttle Position (TP) sensor for a reading of 4.9-5.1 volts. If the R wire at the IAC or injector does not show battery voltage, access the Electronic Engine Control (EEC) power relay located under the driver side of the dash near the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and check for a possible circuit issue of the relay before condemning the relay. If the R wire shows battery voltage and the O/W wire is showing a reading of over 5.1 volts, check the PCM ground circuits for a loss of ground. The main PCM ground circuits of concern are the Black/Light Green (BK/LG) wires at pins 40 and 60 which run to the battery negative post. If there is no spark with the SPOUT connector unplugged, check the Dark Blue (DB) wire of the ICM connection for a 0 to 12-volt square wave when cranking to determine if the distributor pick-up assembly is faulty. I know you said you replaced this, but it could be defective from the factory I suppose.Also check for power to the ICM and ignition coil on the White/Light Blue (W/LB) wire from the ignition switch.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
