Default Re: unusual no start

The number one reason for not starting after R&R engine is the ECU grounds on the thermostat.

Everything hooked up, and paper clip NOT in the test plug, turn the key on but don't crank. The CEL should come on for 2 seconds then go out. If it comes on and stays on, the ECU is not booting up.
