-voltage at injector terminals = 12V
-thinking something was wrong with main relay I removed it and resoldered it. However I botched this pretty bad, probably fried part of the board among other things (first time soldering anything and used a 40w iron by mistake.)
-plugged it back in, still heard fuel pump and CEL click/off after 2 seconds. No start
-checked for spark at all cylinders, no spark anywhere
-checked for spark at ignition coil, no spark, and rotor turns
-used LED test light, hooked up neg. To battery ground; positive to positive bolt on the distributor(blk/ylw wire with '+' symbol). Light lit up and stayed lit during cranking
-used LED test light, hooked up pos. Terminal to battery pos. Terminal, negative to terminal on distributor with (-) symbol. Light flashed on and off during cranking.
This last test implicates a bad coil based on what I read. After doing this I checked ALL fuses in the car. Here is how I checked them (not sure if this is the correct way)
- multimeter set to 12V. Connected ground (COM) lead to negative battery terminal, then checked both ends of all fuses with pos. Lead with key in ON position.
I had no reading (0 volts) for fuses 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 18, 19, 21, 22
I really dont know what this means. I dont know if these normally dont register voltage under these testing conditions, I dont know if I was testing these fuses incorrectly, and I dont know what this means overall. All other fuses registered 12V at both terminals.
If someone could help me analyze these results I would appreciate it. I assumed I jacked the main relay and ordeder one online it should be here tommorow
