Vehicle parking in the garage. The next morning I start the engine. It only cranks but wont run. Turn on ignition 12 Volts positive feed to coils and injectors okay. When start no pulse signal on both ignition coils and injectors. Camshaft and crankshaft sensors are new original GM parts.
Do you

Try resetting your security system if no manual look online on how to do it.

I will add a few more details, after some attempts to start the car it runs okay fine very smooth. I let it run for thirty minutes and turn it off to have a lunch break. When I came back and I tried to start it again, it cranks but wont run. Same as before.

Check fuel pressure with a gauge auto parts rent it it may be low especially when hot.

Yes, I check the fuel pressure it is 45 psi. The main problem is every time the engine will not run. No negative pulse signal on both ignition coils and injectors. Ignition positive feed 12 volts is okay. I checked the wire continuity from crank/cam sensors going to PCM it is okay. When engine cranks, both sensors sending signal to PCM, but the PCM does not send pulse signal to coils and injectors. After some attempts the engine ran very smooth, but when I turn it off it will not run again. I checked all the ground wires, okay. Checked all the fuses okay, checked with launch x431 scantools no DTC. Thanks in advance for any help.

Did you try a security reset? Unfortunately we do not have any information on this car so check cranks sensor and do wiggle test at crank sensor that may be messing things up. They will go bad and not set a code if signal gets to PCM then it may be a bad PCM.

Like HMAC300 stated, we do not have that vehicle here in the United States. But if you have a compatible scan tool try checking for codes. Also when problem starts, look at the live data on scanner and see if you have an rpm's reading. If no rpm's while cranking then you will not have pulse to the injectors or have any fire. If no rpm's I would suspect a faulty crank sensor.
