Went to see my brothers baby at the hospital and the car drove there fine no problems. Came back out and car started then immediatley died. Tried a few things to get it running and no luck. Its been sitting for a while now.I have replaced injectors, fuel filter, fuel pump, MAP senor, IAC valve, for some reason my obdII reader wont link to the vehicle was wondering if maybe the computer was fried. If anyone has a clue what could be going on please respond thank you.

So does your scan tool power up off obd2 connector?Have you checked for spark?Have you checked the actual fuel pressure to see if it has enough to start and run?Have you checked to see if you have a injector pulse to the injector's?Is the security light on solid or flashing while it doesn't start?Have you made sure the battery cable's are clean and tight?

Scan tool powers up and runs through but says it cant link with the vehicle. Yes I have spark, I checked the pulse for the injectors fine. It starts then dies out right away after that the security light flashes and for about 15 seconds and then goes solid. Battery cables r clean and tight. Fuel pressure is at 47psi. Cant think of much more hoping I can find someone here whop can help I appreciate the quick response
