Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

You have good fuel pressure and good spark. That leaves no injector pulse as a possible cause or the anti theft system activated. If the theft system is to blame the theft light will flash fast with the key in the run position. Do you know how to check these?

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

haven't heard back from you yet. I found a blog that pointed towards a problem in the engine fuse box. I tapped on it a few times with a rubber hammer and wiggled the wiring harness and still a No Go.
The SES light does not illuminate when the key is in the run position. OBD2 reader can communicate with PCM and there are no codes. RPM gauge does not move when I start with starter fluid.
Any questions??

did you check the signal coming out of the crank sensor?

I check the Crank Signal AV Volts .52

AC Volts .52
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I have spark, the Engine will sputter with starter fluid, I can jump pin 30 to 87 on the fuel pump relay and plenty of fuel pressure.
Do I need to check for Crank Signal at the PCM?

I'm going to open this up to the others. I'm on vacation and do not want to keep you waiting.

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.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
