Default Cel 2-3-8

Driving home from work, got 3 blocks down the street shifting into 3rd. at part throttle and I feel the engine die as a quick CEL is thrown. Coast over to the side of the road with a dead engine, all electrical works, repeatedly try to start car, turns over....nada? Pulled some fuses? Get out and try to push it up a driveway by myself, (couldn't), figured I'd give it another try and it fires right up like normal? Got it home and checked the code got 2 long= Ne signal, 3 long= G signal, then 8 long= Afm. Checked all my wires, Bipes, fuses, ecu, under hood and dash, didn't find anthing out of the ordinary, I had soldered my wires into the ecu to the bipes. It's seems to running OK right now, I hate to get stranded with the car on the highway and need a tow! I did a search, read some of the other threads, didn't find any threads with my codes exactly? Any suggestions?
TIA
Mike

I know my Bipes used tol shake the wires out in the back and stall me. Do the lights on the Bipes come on with the ignition key? If so, that is not it.

Yeah, I heard about that, I did firmly push the connector into the back of the unit, it didn't seem as if it was loose?

Do you have an Rx-7 AFM or have ever forgotten to plug in your AFM back when trying to start? For some reason mine always has that code stored.


For:

02 Crank Position Sensor 2 (NE 2 Signal)
03 Crank Position Sensor 1 (G Signal)

RPM SIGNAL-NO SIGNAL TO ECU FROM DISTRIBUTOR ("Ne" OR "G") AFTER ENGINE HAS BEEN CRANKED

--DISTRIBUTOR/CIRCUIT

--STARTERSIGNAL CIRCUIT

--IGNITER/IGNITER CIRCUIT

--ECU

Something must have come undone or touched an exposed wire? Since your Bipes cuts the CAS signal when disconnected, I'd start to think you may of had a loose connection.

Rechecked all electrical connections and went through just about anything I could think of? Drove it in to work, no problems....... Buying a digital voltmeter after work, will check the resistance value a cas, afm, etc over the weekend.
