Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
2000 chevy prism. engine turns over normal. has no spark, no injector signal, no power to fuel pump. a new fuel pump and ecu has been installed. what am I missing? help please. is there a hidden main power relay. oh also ecu will not communicate with obII scanner. ? all fuses check good. is there a circuit breaker that needs to be reset manualy?
Unfortunately there is no circuit breaker. Without being able to see the car myself to diagnose it and based on the symptoms you state, I would say off the top of my head that there is a problem with the sensor that recognizes crankshaft position, or crankshaft position sensor as it is better known. DO NOT JUST GO AND BUY ONE. There are other tests.
When you first turn on the key without trying to start the vehicle, do you heard a very soft click after about 3-5 seconds. This is the fuel pump relay bringing the fuel system up to pressure.
If you can get someone to check to see if there are any codes stored in the computer, it would aid in my diagnosis.

difficult one could be a multitude of problems from a supply problem to the ECU or the factory immobiliser has cut in ...have you check the knock sensor ?? dont know where it is on theis model but its like a switch that shuts everything down in a accident

have someone to stand back by the truck why you turn the key to listen to hear if there is noise coming from the gas tank if it is then its not the pump then it maybe your fuel pump relay or the crank sensor give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

SOURCE: engine won't start - I
it sounds like the cam sensor is not turning, Pull the oil fill cap and look in to see if the rockers are moving up and down while the engine is cranking. If you cannot see this, try to remove the top cam gear plastic cover , or peek in there to see if the cam and belt are rotating during cranking. Your timing belt might be broken.
