First of all thank you so much for your donation. That code shouldn't cause it to not start. Check for spark also is your security light on solid or flashing?Do you have a test light or a multimeter?

Security light goes off. There is spark at the plugs. And the car does want to start with starting fluid. Sounds like injectors not spraying. Also checked fuel pump. There is gas at the injector. Checked relays and fuses everything is ok

Alright get out your test light ground the lead wire to the negative side of the battery.Unplug all of your injector's turn your key to the run position.Now i want you to test all the pink wire's to the injector's for power they should all light up.Now take the lead wire of your test light and hook it to the positive side of your battery.Now check your light green and black your black your light blue and black and your pink and black wire's one at a time.Test each wire with the test light crank the engine the test light should flash for each wire while you crank the engine.Let me know what you find.

I tested negative to all the pink wires with the ignition on and none of them came on. Tested positive to the other wires while trying to start it and those did flash like you said

Alright in the under hood fuse box there should be a INJ fuse 10AMP check and see if it's blown most likely it is. Then I want you to inspect all the wire's to the injector's most likely one of those wire's shorted to the metal injector rail somewhere. Let me know what you find.

Thanks a whole bunch. You are the man! I found a injector wire that had rubbed against a bolt and shorted out. Thanks again.
