I wonder if you guys have any Ideas. I am also searching through past
posts for Ideas.
This is about my 6th day at the state DOT garage, and my self and
another guy started at the same time. We'll call him "my partner".
We had a 95 Taurus 3.0 L motor come in Friday for state inspection,
oil service, check the A/C, and one of the washer jets was clogged,
and a general check over.
My partner replaced the A/C compressor and condenser we changed the
serpentine belt, Oil service, fuel filter, removed the wiper arms and
the plastic shroud below them to access the washer jet nozzle on the
He charged the A/C while I was helping another guy, backed the car up,
(it ran) and was doing some paper work, and when he went to pull the
car out, it would not start.
It is cranking fine, good battery, starter, etc. Key on, motor off, we
can not hear the fuel pump running. We also do not have spark, nor are
there any injector pulses when we plugged in a "noid" light and
We checked any wires we thought we may have disturbed changing the
condenser and compressor, but as far as we could tell, everything
One thing I am not sure of, and did not check yet, is if we have power
to the + side of the coil, I suspect we do not. Is there some type of
Main relay, that we need to check? Possible no power from ignition
switch even though it is cranking.
Is there possible another fuse somewhere, (according to the owners
manual, there is not) other than the fuse block under the hood on the
drivers side, and the fuse block under the dash on the drivers side?
All the fuses are checking OK, and I did swap the one (40 amp I think
it was) for the ECM. I did not see a fuse listed "per say" for the
fuel pump like on a GM.
Thank you for any help or Ideas you may have.
