NOT SURE WHY IT WONT RUN

1987 Ford Aerostar

Electrical problem
1987 Ford Aerostar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

the van was running then quit, just wouldnt start. It will start with starting fluid sprayed in the intake, but wont stay running, the fuel pump runs when I jump power to it, but still wont start without starting fluid. Could the injectors not be working?

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge to rule out the fuel pump and also could be the injectors not pulsing.

The pressure is good from the fuel pump, what would cause the injectors not to pulse?

The computer's injector/s ground drivers.

So the computer needs replacing or is it repairable? Where is it located?
