Customer Question

I have a 2001 Toyota Solara with a 2.2 litre. It has one dead cylinder. The plug is firing and the cylinder produces good compression. I removed the injectors and tested them, they are all working properly. I put a meter on the injector wires to the dead cylinder and started the engine. There is no power to the wires for that injector.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: It is consistant.
JA: Are you fixing your Solara yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I tested the injectors, they are working. I tested the spark plug and coil, they are working. I tested the cylinder compression, it is good. I tested the power to the injector on the dead cylinder and found no power.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

You probably have an open in the wiring harness. Look over the harness carefully and check the pcm connector for corrosion.
