My friend has an 88 Bonnie that died the other day. He said he was driving and it started running really rough and the CEL came on. He shut the car off and it wouldn't start again. He had it towed to his house. He then (unfortunately) left the battery disconnected several times while he worked on it for a couple of days.
He replaced the crank position sensor, coil packs, and had the ICM checked and AutoZone said it was fine. There is no fuel (fuel pump never comes on, no pressure in the fuel rail, no fuel smell on the plugs) and no spark for any of the plugs.
Fast forward to today. I jumpered the diagnostic connector below the steering wheel with a paper clip (A & B are the only two adjacent terminals with wires in them, so I couldn't screw THAT up), and the CEL doesn't come on at all.
With it jumpered and the key on, I see the oil pressure light, the "brights" indicator, and both blinker lights come on solid. After a few seconds, only the oil pressure light remains lit. The fans do not come on at all, either. If I crank it, the lights then repeat the same cycle.
What do you think, bad PCM?? Anyone else seen similar behavior?
