Since it didnt light up that narrows it down a bit.

Check for voltage at each connectors with the key on, is there any?

Post back what you find.

One wire is should be hot when the ignition switch is on, and the other should have no voltage, the ecm controls the ground from information from the Crank and Cam shaft position sensors, MAF sensor and O2 sensors.

Have the ECM tested.

Are you saying only one of the wires shows hot in both plugs untill you plug it in, then they all show hot?

Leave the one that shows hot in both unplugged and keep the rest in, does it start?

With them all unplugged, thers only one injector wire that is hot? Is that the first injector wire or is it in the middle somewhere?

Is it showing hot on that plug on both of the terminals? How are you testing them with a test light? You hooking one end into one of the terminals and hooking the other into the other end of the terminals? If it doesnt light on the "hot plug" then both sides isnt hot and your testing them wrong individually.

Disconnect the wiring harness at the ECM and Injectors now do a continuity test between the 2 the only way to have power at both wires is -its shorted together-one injector with shorted wire will bring down the rest-

Below is your circuitry

The light blue wire is the ground circuit that the computer uses to drive it off and on the black and pink is the hot circuit to the injector should have this power when key at on
