WHAT IS CAUSING THE INJECTOR TO STAY OPEN
2002 Dodge Caravan
I have a 2002 Dodge caravan 3.3l that came in running rough. It would not communicate with the scanner. I replaced the PCM and still no communication with scanner. Compression test showed no compression on cylinder 1. Rings were washed out in that cylinder from Injector 1 dumping fuel. Installed new engine and still no communication with scanner and still dumping fuel on Injector 1. ANy ideas where to go from here?

Remove the harness to the cylinder and see if it still dumps fuel. It may be a bad injector
I unhooked the harness at the injector and installed a NOID lite, instead of a pulse I got straight NOID light, steady light no blinking.
Ok, the return wire to the pcm is grounded causing this condition. You need to trace the wire back to the pcm to find the ground.
Does each injector have its own ground or are all the injectors on one ground?
Each have there own ground but the ground is the pcm. You have a wire that is grounded before it hits the pcm.
Would you recommend undoing the crossover pipe on the exhaust for easier access to the wiring and un-taping the wire loom and check manually the whole way or is there an easier way to track it down?
Find the color of the wire and trace it every 2 or 3 feet. You will have to remove whatever is necessary to get to the wire.
