If so what can i ck to find out why ecm not responding and no ck engine light ? i cked fuse on battery and ok
Technician: Daniel Wilson,

Thanks for the update. Yes if you have no communication from the ECM and no check engine light then you want to check your inline fuses between your battery box and your ECM and also confirm that you have battery power to the ECM and also switched power at the ECM as well as good ground. If your power and grounds are good at the ECM connector which means that the ECM should be powering up and communicating if the power and ground is there but it is not communicating then either the check engine light itself is out or the ECM is no good if the wiring harness test good. If there is a loss of power or ground then you need to investigate that further in determine where power or ground is lost. That is where you need to start with this one. Keep me posted on the results as we can follow up as needed.
