I have a 1993 Cadillac Eldorado. It's in great condition, runs well. When I try to crank the car, the engine turns but it will not start. I recently replaced the Map sensor and that seemed to take care of the problem. Then I replaced the battery and the problem started again. The fuel pump works, I have replaced the fuel filter and there is fuel getting through the hose. The fuel injectors were recently cleaned with Lucas (I did a loop around the interstate to run it through). There is fire from the coil pack and the spark plugs were just replaced a week ago. The wires are in good shape and connected. I also reset the security system after replacing the battery in case the anti-theft device was activated when the battery was replaced. Have I gotten a hold to some bad gas? Or is there a problem with the ignition switch? I'm at a loss!

I have replaced the fuel filter and there is fuel getting through the hose. This is not enough give me some fuel pressure readings with a pressue gauge so I can continue to help

Could be the injectors are not being energized-

Squirt some carb cleaner down the throttle plates, while someone turns it over, if it starts its fuel, if it doesn't its spark

ck for codes, off and warmer on the heater with the key in the on position. Write them down and post them here
