I was giving a jump to someone and they hooked the cables up fine on there rig but when they hooked up to mine they put them backwards. Mine was running while they were hooking up. As soon as they touched the cables the rig shutdown. I found that the fuel pump was not working and replaced it with the upgraded wiring harness the manufacturer recomended. Now I have fuel delivery as far up as the fuel rail. When you depress the shrader valve fuel comes out. No fuel is being delivered past the fuel injectors. If you spray starting fluid in the intake it will start and run a few seconds till it runs dry. I have scecked for codes and there are none present. Is it possible the computer is falty? Maybe the TPS?

Would it put out a code if the computer was bad? I've looked into replacing the computer and it said it would have to be "flashed". What does that mean and who can do it for me?

I gave you that information quit making a new post. Go to the dealer and get them to reflash it. You need a Tech2. Yes it would give you a code indicating the computer is bad.
