Well, have you tried clearing the code then seeing if it comes back on?

Well when I said keep getting a 302 code I assumed a reader would know that I had cleared the code--my bad. Regardless I found it and need to kicked myself. I have worked in the equipment maintenave area for years and have repaired and rebuild countless cars as well. I forgot the basic troubleshooting law---"Look for the similest thing", Like if the light is not on in a room check the switch before you replace the light run to breaker box. In my case the injector harness wire for # 2 was not fully seated. Thanks
