No spark, no fuel after starting coil on plug conversion
1997 with built 1.8 and MS by Scott. We painted the engine bay of this car so we took all the wires out into the cabin. When we reinstalled the engine, the fuel pump wouldn't turn on by it's own, but would with at the diagnostic box. It would start and ran fine with the jumper in there and we were able to drive it to start tuning.
Yesterday we decided to start making our COP setup and splicing the wires. in the middle of it he needed to check something on his external FPR and turned the key on. I think some of the wires touched that we had spliced from the old coil connection and thats where we are. We have no spark and now the fuel pump doesn't even turn on at the diagnostic port. I can here the injectors opening when i spin the CAS though.
Changed back to the coilpack and tested for spark (no luck)
Changed blown 15A engine fuse under dash
Changed main fuse, head fuse and injector relay under hood
Changed fuel pump relay with know good one
Tried known good CAS
I am at my wits end here and am really going crazy. Any help would be much appreciated.
