ok so the car has no spark or fuel (im getting it through the rail but not into the engine) so im thinking ecu (new) or cas (new) but its not. i checked the 15a fuse and the egr both are good. all grounds are good along with the main relay. i think it might be a short some where but i dont know where to look. what wires should i trace down? the guy im buying it from removed the alarm and installed a e-fan is there anying under the dash that would cause this? is the cas suppose to have voltage to any of its wires i dont see how it would work with out some sort of power going in i checked it and it had none going in or out (i know the cas is good).

so



1.no fuel from injectors

2.no sprark (i have a power source going to the coil and the main relay)

3.no tach

4.all warning lights are on when the key turned to on this may be normal

5.no power from or out of cas

no none out of the injectors. from what i see the fuel pump relay was rigged and the fuel pump tester on the afm (the yellow connector by the afm) was bolted down to a ground i dont know if this is some sort of mod or not but the harness from the afm back is melted. im going today to replace the harness fix the wiring under the dash and replace the relay and hope the damn thing starts. one more question how did it burn up all the wires and not blow a fuse?
