Default Made a mistake. Reseting base timing.

So installing some maint stuff on the miata and made a mistake.
Unplugged the Cam Angle Sensor to get to the coil bracket bolts to change the valve cover gasket.

Get spark plugs done, crank the car... and forgot to plug the CAS plug back in. Correct said plug. Car won't start, like it's way off time.

Not quite sure how to get it back to a base time, since it won't run where I can use the trigger wizard and a timing light. Which is all google is giving me.

If you forgot to plug it back in, just plug it back in.

How did you correct it?

Without it plugged in, would not fire. Plugged it back in, and it sputters and pops like a dizzy a couple teeth off.

Going to double check everything again.

Time for some new plugs wires I guess.
Stuck some volvo plug wires on it and it is working now.

Fiddled with the wires, and pulled the battery to reset, if that does anything. and had it running on 3 cylinders. So stuck on some different wires and it is back to normal.

Did you rotate it a bit by accident? Maybe the timing is way off if the CAS has shifted.

It was his plug wires, nothing to do with the CAS...
