Sounds Good I Just Got Home &&' My Car is At My Shop, I Have HowEver Been able To start The Car , But Only 3-4 Times Since I Asked The Question,
Once The Car Starts It Runs Fine Just Seems Like The Idle Is A Little High.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The Car Had Been Sitting Since May 2014 . ( When The Abs Module Cought Fire ) Before All That happend The Car Was Running Perfectly Fine, Now That I Replaced The AbS Module, And Main Engine Harness I Came To Find It Doesnt Start Up Every Time . The Odometer Is Dead As Well Reads No Gasoline But I Did Put 5 Gallons Of Gas . I checked All Fuses And They all are Okay as well
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 7 months ago.

When it will not start have you checked to see what is missing like fuel pressure, ignition spark and injector pulse?

Is the theft light on or flashing when this occurs?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I Have Not, Checked . But , If I do Leave The Car On 5 Minutes Let It Get To Operating Temperature & Crank It Again, It Will Not Start. I Did Notice That If I Leave Key In The ON Position For A Fue Seconds Is When Itll Start (SomeTimes)

Thanks, ***** ***** know when you can check these things. So far I am leaning most towards a computer or fuel pressure concern with your explanation.

Sorry , i havent got back just been busy, but first thing i tested was injector pulse, with noid light and i am not getting anything at any of the injectors , what would be my next step ?
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 7 months ago.

Next step is with the key on verify the injectors get power.

Next step is to use a scan tool and confirm there is a cam sensor signal getting to the PCM.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Could I use A scan tool the autozone lends out , it shows live readings.?
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 7 months ago.

I have my own tools so I have never loaned one to see the capabilities of those tools. It is worth a try

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Welp I Tryed That, And It Didnt Work I Will Try and Get My Hands On a scan Tool . And will get back to you. Thanks !
