Default ignition output signal CEL #15

hey guys i had a code 9 the other day CYP sensor (cyl 1 sensor), so i bought and installed a new dizzy from AZ and i was driving home and my car just shut off and a code 15 popped up. I think there may be a wiring problem near my ecu, so i checked those wires out and fixed a couple.

Cliff notes:
95 del sol si (jdm sohc vtec JDMd15b obd1)
car wont start (but will everyonce in a while when i tinker with the wires but shuts off
CEL #15 ignition output signal

anyone have some expertise?

Here's where to concentrate:

1) The igniter may be bad.

2) The Yel/Grn wire between the igniter and ECU may be bad (open or short).

3) The Blk/Yel wire between distributor 2P connector and ignition switch may be bad. There should be battery voltage with the key turned to ON(II).

yeah all of my wires are hacked to bits around that area by my ECU. I tried using a different ECU as well...

sounds like im going to need a mutimeter, i checked for power at the yellow/green wire using a lightbulb and ground and it looks like theres power there (maybe insufficient though???), i literally had just replaced the dizzy when this **** happened and i was driving away from autozone, so im not thinkin its the dizzy too much since its new...

Is the CEL on?

Does the Blk/Yel wire in the distributor have battery voltage with the key in ON(II)?

Does the Yel/Grn wire running between the igniter unit and ECU have continuity? What voltage does this wire have at the igniter unit with the key in ON(II)?

No power with the key in ON(II), right?

If so, the Blk/Yel wire is broken somewhere between the distributor connector and the ignition switch OR the ignition switch is bad. Have him check those two possibilities.

What year? Did he already inspect the Blk/Yel wire pins in the distributor connectors for damage? Does the windshield washer motor work?
