Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you're missing both spark and fuel then most likely the engine controller is not awake, whether it's due to a loss of power or ground or an internal failure.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool to see if the ECM communicates. If not and fuses are good then the next step will be to test the ECM powers and grounds to determine if there is a wiring issue or the ECM itself has failed.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
