i agree that it would be expected not to crank if it thought the hood is open. and since ive checked all other wiring im leaning towards the tach wire needing to be connected. im just not sure what wire it is at the pcm. the factory service manual shows 2 white wires on the black 32 pin connector. one if for circuit 423 or ignition control, the other is "PRNDL P", obviously not the one im looking for. i know the white wire im looking for is circuit 121 (white wire) but its supposed to be on pin E of an "8-way ignition harness connector."
i have no idea where to find this connector though. all the alarm install diagrams say theres a tach signal wire on the white wire at the pcm. so i guess im confused if this is the ignition control wire (circuit 424) because thats the only white wire ignition related at the pcm.
