I recently arced the positive terminal of the battery to the hood and blew 2 fusible links. \I repaired them and the car won't start. I was told the ecm was bad so I changed it and still nothing. The car turns over and starts for a second then shuts off. It turns over after that but thats it. When I turn the key on I only get a 9V reading on the volt gauge but the battery is brand new. I have also tried replacing the coil and still nothing. What else could it be?

Do you

Lets start with the basics. Which engine do you have?

Measure the voltage at the coil's positive terminal. You should see 12 volts for one second after turning on the ignition switch, then it should come back during cranking.
