1 Answer


When it does it see if it is losing power or ground with a test light. The ECM/computer supplies the ground and the ignition switch supplies the power to the injectors. See if there is power on one wire and ground on the other.If you have power or ground on both wires there is a short in the harness usually in a connector. No ground bad ECM - No power start at the ignition switch.
