Too bad you're down in TX, I'm sure someone would be willing to come by and help.

Well, If all your fuses check out good, (IIRC, theres a starter fuse?) check the wiring around your fuse box?

Did you hear any pop or spark when you tried to put your stock ECU back on? Anything unusual? Did all you do was try to put the stock ECU in and crank?

When did the car "just die?" Was it before or after you tried to crank it, or was it after you plugged in the stock ECU? Need more info here.

All fuses look good. I'll check all the wirings tonight around the fuse box.

Car was running before I switched back to stock ECU. When I plugged in the stock ECU, the motor wanted to crank but then it just won't turn. It almost seems like my battery died but it didn't.

maybe your starter is just dying.

It sometimes takes my car a few jiggles from on to start position several times before it cranks up. The connectors on the started could just be corroded over time, or your battery might just be really dying. Try jumping your car with another car or a battery booster to see if that helps.

Do you hear any "clicks" that your starter is trying to move when you put it into start? Or do you just dont hear anything when you move it into start?

You know what? I don't think I heard any clicks. It could be the starter. I have a coilpack coming my way, when I get it I'll check to see if it's the starter. Thanks

You guys are right. My coils are not fried. I rechecked them again and I get resistance of 10 ohms on both coils. So definitely something else is wrong. My starter possibly gone bad at the same time. I just bought a new main fuse, so will have to investigate some more.

It's too bad you don't have some folks to run through all this with you. Good news the coil packs are ok! I'm sure a systematic tracing will work. Could be a clutch switch lock out?

Actually I know somebody that can help me, but I'd rather troubleshoot it myself before I bother anybody.

Probably good news...

I have been tuning not inverted. 1999 Abe's bord MSII no coilpack issues.

Check your plugs. Probably Wet.

Just checked the plugs, yes they're black. Probably from running rich. Thanks for the tip. I'm going to buy new plugs tomorrow.

I assume you calibrated your tps correctly?
Did you ever find that picture of the capacitor to get rid of battery light issue? I tried to search but I could not find any.

I found the picture but I can't find what size capacitor. I think it's a .22uF? I'll post it up when I get home.
