Well the brown and white wire from the coil connector to the fuse box I cut at both ends and wired directly from under the fuse box directly to the brown and white wire on the coil connector .
I tested the other three wires with the engine cranking and they all flash with a test light clamps to positive battery terminal like they're supposed to and by bypassing the brown and white wire I figured I'd bypass any short to ground.
Put everything back together plug the coil connector in now it won't even start put it back the way it was with the original wiring it won't even start
I don't know what else to do with this fantastically stupidly designed car
Per this statement, he cut the brown and white wire at both the IPM and the coil. Then he ran a wire directly from IPM to coil. If so, this would have left all the rest of the original harness hanging. So, he had ASD power to the coil, but not the injectors or PCM. Which is why in post #330 (I think) he stated:
"the brief time that I was cranking it threw codes 1193 inlet air temperature and it also threw a 1389 no output power from ASD relay"
Then the fuel pump not running came up and I stated that it would be best to put the harness back the way it originally was before assuming the fuel pump was bad and not just being shut off by the PCM which was no longer getting the ASD relay power output.
Maybe I failed to follow, maybe not... whatever the case, if the wiring harness is now wired as it should have been from the manufacturer, then I'd say now is a good time to check the fuel pump operation again to see if it still appears not to be pumping.
