Absolutely. The Engine Computer wants to know when the engine is rotating, (cranking or running) so it knows when to turn on the automatic shutdown (ASD) relay. It knows that by the pulses it receives from the cam and crank sensors. When it sees those pulses and turns the ASD relay on, that sends current to the ignition coil(s), injectors, fuel pump or pump relay, alternator field, and oxygen sensor heaters.
