No , the PCM/ ECM just turns the fuel injectors on a little longer till warm up.
The powertrain control module (PCM) reads voltages from several sensors in order to determine how much fuel to give the engine. The fuel is delivered during one of several conditions called modes. The PCM controls all modes.
The Starting Mode--With the ignition switch in the ON position, before engaging the starter, the PCM energizes the fuel pump relay for 2 seconds allowing the fuel pump to build up pressure. The PCM first tests speed density, then switches to the mass air flow (MAF) sensor. The PCM also uses the engine coolant temperature (ECT), the throttle position (TP), and the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensors to determine the proper air/fuel ratio for starting. The PCM controls the amount of fuel delivered in the starting mode by changing the pulse width of the injectors. This is done by pulsing the injectors for very short times.
Guessing when you say pressure that you have fuel pressure and that the fuel pump is working but the injectors aren't pulsing and injecting fuel into the cylinders. The way your fuel system works is that you should have constant power at each injector and the vehicles computer (the ECM) gets readings from different sensors and send a quick ground pulse in order to complete the circuit. each time the ECM sends a ground pulse, that's when the injector injects fuel so the ground signal/pulse is quick (on and off, one and off..you get the idea). The first thing I would do if your fuel pump is pumping and you have fuel pressure is check the fuse. The fuse you want to check should be a 20 amp fuse in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout and I have marked the fuse you need to check (the ECM 1 fuse). If that fuse is blown you will not have that constant power at the injectors. If blown replace and that should solve the problem unless it blows again which would mean you have a short. If it isn't blown make sure you have power at all time when the key is on. The pink wire at each injector should be the power wire. If no power you need to locate the open wire for that circuit (coming from that fuse to each injector). This is where I would start. If you need further instructions as far as any more testing procedures, reply/comment here or feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope it's as simple as a fuse for your sake and I hope this helped.
What does this mean?OBD Code
P0371 refers to the optical sensor which
provides a high resolution signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) by
counting pulses on the sensor disk located in the injection pump. The high
resolution is one of the most important inputs by the PCM for fuel control and
timing. This test monitors the number of high resolution pulses which have been
missed (not detected). It's based on a comparison between the number of pulses
that were detected since the last pump cam pulse and the number of the pulses
that should have occurred. There are approximately 64 high resolution pulses for
every cam pulse.
SymptomsPossible sumptoms of
OBD code P0371 - Engine Light ON (or
Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
CausesPossible causes of OBD
code P0371 -
Open or short in the optical sensor circuit - Optical sensor connector - Damaged
optical sensor - Damaged PCM or ECM The Error code is generally activated on
detection of the following conditions: There are too many high resolution pulses
from the optical sensor to the PCM
Possible Solutions- If damage, repair
optical sensor circuit - Replaced optical sensor - Replaced PCM or ECM
PCM stands for Pulse Code Modulation.
Pulse-code modulation (PCM) is a method used to digitally represent sampled analog signals. It is the standard form for fuel injection computers. A PCM stream is a digital representation of an analog signal, in which the magnitude of the analog signal is sampled regularly at uniform intervals, with each sample being quantized to the nearest value within a range of digital steps. So no, Pulse Code Modulation does not control the fuel pump. The Fuel Injection Computer does control the fuel pump via a relay. Bad connection between the fuel pump relay and the in-tank fuel pump, or a bad fuel pump.
sounds like u got no injector pulse comin from ecm.we need to pull ecm codes an review them ,possible camshaft sensors faulty they usually provide reference pulses to ecm for injector firing or pulse.without this pulse ur injectors will never open up to let fuel enter combustion chamber. one way of checking pulse is to connect a noid light(small light bulb that plugs in injector pigtail to chek for power to injector and ur pulsing ground coming from ecm to injector) an test for a blinking light while cranking engine.

Not sure where you got incorrect gear ratio. This P0370 DTC is for what I have listed above.
ok you must see what is missing. an injector requires 12volts to operate. the 12+ should be constant when key on and engine on or off,and the ground pulses. check both ways and see whats not there. if you have no pulse then ecm,cam sensor, or wiring faulty. is power+ is gone, then you have wiring trouble wich is the easier soulution. check and let us know
