Got a Voltmeter? The EEC relay "feeds" the PCM, Fuel Pump relay, and most actuators on the engine.
1. Use voltmeter w/key on and check for battery voltage (around 12V) on the red wire going to any fuel injector, or the IAC valve, or the ignition coil. They are all the same wire so if you got 12Volts, the EEC relay is working.
2. Next, w/key on still, back probe the orange wire @ the TP sensor (I think it's the middle one?) To see if it has 5 volts (reference voltage). This will tell you if the computer is "up" but if you don't have 5 volts it doesn't necessarily mean the PCM is bad either. It could be another shorted sensor that shares the reference circuit.
If you got those 2 correct voltages, EEC and PCM are powered up.
