Everything checked out good. Once in a while the car won't start, so I tap on the ground connection on the shock tower and then it starts, and yes I've taken the cables apart and have cleaned them.

The lug was cleaned and tightened, the voltage is fine. I was told it could be my E.C.M.

If the voltage is fine, then it does not need an ecm.

Thats why I want the actual voltage
