WILL NOT START, BUT TRIES SOME TIMES

1995 BMW 318

Electrical problem
1995 BMW 318 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

1995 318 convertible will not start, fires out of time. Stops starter during cranking. Almost starts some times. Back fires out of throttle body some times.
Driving home from airport one eve and just stopped running.

Compression 200,190,190,190 PSI
Crank sensor replaced
Cam sensor measures 1280 ohms
Cam timing is correct and chain is in great shape with no slack
Fuel getting to plugs, wet after cranking, if relay is taken out cranks continuously, no fuel to fire.
With plugs laying on valve cover and cranking, seem to be sequence ok but sometimes fires all at once.
