Coils are COP
I attached a remote start to starter and turned the key on; I lifted the vehicle and was about to test imput/output voltage at the Crankshaft Positioning Sensor. The wires were proteced in corregated tubing, so I unplugged the connector from the CPS, exposed some of each of the two wires, and plugged back in. I hit the remote starter, and the vehicle started. I shut the vehicle off, unplugged the connector, applied dielectric grease, and plugged the connector back in- turned the key, and it started right up.
I believe that our locale (salt air environment-Cape Cod, MA) and the fact that the vehicle is a limo and has 189,000 miles) led to pigtail connector corrosion, as the sensor is located in the front botton of engine.
Thanks for your help!
