First to check is to make sure the ICM is getting power and ground. Then, you'll make sure that the crank sensor is also getting power. The next step is to test the crank sensor signals. Remember, there are two signals involved (in starting the Engine) and that are produced by the same crank sensor. From the results you get you'll be able to pinpoint the problem to the ignition control module or...The crank sensor.Or completely eliminate these as the cause of the No Start condition. IMPORTANT- To perform all of the tests the Battery MUST be in a fully charged condition.
