Hi there. Problem is car shut off while driving. Has good spark, has fuel to the rail but injectors wont fire. Changed many sensors but no help. Fuel pressure is good and holds steady. All fuses and relay's appear to be working properly. Change PCM?

Yes as I stated all fuses and relays seem to be functioning normally> there is power on both sides of the fuse with key on. Extremely frustrated with this problem. PCMs are hard to get used and new. Found one on ebay for my vin. Hate to buy it and plug it in and stiil have a problem.I

Is there power to injectors? If yes PCM provides ground to operate inj. What sensors have been replaced?

Yes the test light indicates power to each injector. Sensors changed. Map, coolant temp. Egr solenoid, crank position. When you spray fuel in the inlet it fires right over.

Have you checked for Diagnostic Trouble Codes?
Seems you have covered all the bases I can't think of anything else but PCM.

Yes codes were 26, 32, 45 but none of those should not keep the car running.

No your right but the codes point to a faulty PCM 26 Quad driver in PCM is open and couple that with 32 no signal from PCM to EGR solenoid and that indicates PCM failure. So if wiring is good from PCM to injectors I don't see any other way than aPCM.

PCM no help! Looking for wire issue. What about canister purge solenoid? Its on the same quad driver as the egr solenoid. Could that be bad? Cant find it at parts store. Dealer part only?
