This is a post I posted earlier and this is what happened:
I was driving my car to work and it died. It started back up and did fine. When I got to work and parked, and turned the car off, I tried to turn it back on and it would not start. It makes the "rrrrr, rrrrrr, rrrrrr" sound, it just won't start. I checked to see if I heard the fuel pump kicking on and did not, so I assumed my fuel pump was out. I dropped the gas tank and got to the fuel pump and it was NOT kicking on. However, I had the fuel pump tested and it is good. My problem is that the electrical connector that you plug the fuel pump into under the seats, is not putting out any electric, therefore, not kicking the pump on. The only thing that anyone has told me it may be is the ASD relay switch. But I have checked it and switched it with another switch and it is good. I was also told to try the crank shaft sensor and/or the but both of those are ok as well. Also, I am not getting any spark when I try to start the car, but was also told that the ASD relay switch would stop spark too.
I have been looking in the Hayne's repair manual and it states that the terminal in the PDC that corresponds with terminal 30 of the ASD Relay should have voltage present at all times (even with the key off), and it does. But it also says that the terminal in the PDC that corresponds with terminal 86 on the ASD relay should have voltage ONLY with the ignition key turned to the "On" position. But I tested it and it not only has voltage with the key "On" but when the key is "Off" as well. Could that be a problem?
I tried all the relays, fuses, etc. I also tried to get codes, but no codes were coming up it wasn t being read for some reason. That is when I took it to a mechanic and he said that the PCM was out.
It would be awesome if that was NOT the problem but I don t know what else to do or check
Thanks so much for the help!
