Your injector harness connectors may be broken - it happens on these cars due to their location and the extreme heat of the VG30DETT motor. If yours are broken, check with or and see if they still sell replacement connectors. It's also possible that the injectors have failed, and need replacement.

My 1993 Dodge Dakota 3.9l v6 4x4 magnum wont fire it will crank over but no fire? The fuel pump relay, crank shaft sensor , spark plugs and wires were replaced. I don’t know a lot about this no fireing...

check the compresion in all cylinders 100 psi (compression good) check the spark -check the fuel pressure.30 psi at gauge with switch on.(if no keep pressure with switch off injectors or fuel pressure regulator are bad
check the signal to the injectors (get little injectors tester at autoparts) if no signal check the ground to the injectors black wire
or the other wire (computer)= good signal to injectors and good fuel pressure and good spark (defective injectors)

No injector pulse 4 cyl 93 f250 460

if you have a $5 test light, you could find the problem. just know that all eight injectors have a constant voltage applied to them anytime the key is in run or start. and also that 4 of the injectors share a common ground, they have their ground wires spliced together before the ground wire enters the pcm to be internally grounded. and the other four injectors are the same- their ground wires splice together. so your four that don't pulse have lost either the power to them, or the common ground wire for the 4 may have broken. or lost connection.

it is easier to check the power side first, so clip a test light lead to the negative battery post or cable, turn the key to on,and probe each injector connector. one of the terminals at all eight injectors will be the power wire, and it should light up the test light. if all eight injectors have power to them, you know it must be a ground side problem. if you find that 4 injectors have no power to them, look for a broken splice in the power wire to all injectors. back in those days, injectors were "bank fired". one side or bank of the engine all had the injector grounds spliced together, so all injectors on one bank fired (pulsed) simultaneously, and then the other bank was fired or pulsed. that was good until sequential injection matched the pulse to the cylinder ready to fire, more precise, and in the modern systems each injector ground has a separate ground inside the pcm. no more splicing of the ground wires, and having bank fired engines.

when the pcm grounds the circuit, the injector coil is energized and the injector opens to spray fuel out. so the injector has constant voltage to it. only when the circuit is grounded is that power applied across the injector.

3 rear cylinders not firing

Check the grounds from the rear injectors to the computer. On a bank fired system as yours, all 3 injector grounds on each bank splice together before they go into the computer. Check wire continuity from injector to the computer connector with the ohmmeter.

Car wont start

Try a little starting fluid in the intake and see if it runs a few seconds. If it does, it could be low fuel pressure or an injector problem. Maybe they aren't pulsing.
You have voltage to the injectors; now check the ground circuit: Use a test light and clip the lead to the POSITIVE post of battery. Put the probe into the ground terminal on an injector connector, and have someone crank the car over. If the test light is blinking, the ground circuit is good. When it blinks, that is when the computer is grounding the circuit for injector pulse to occur.

07 caliber 2 injectors stay on 2 stay off no ground pulse have everything else

Cell phone?
stay on = stuck? (injects full time?)
MPI, most MPI cars are PNP, Plus, neg. Plus fired.
that is all injectors on one side are 12v key on(power bus)
then the ECU fires each injector by a pulled ground (a transistor does that)
if the ground pulse is missing
1: the injector coil open (burned open , infinity ohms)
2: or the ecu driver is dead.
use and ohm meter (resistance ) DMM and measure the coil on all
4 ,they will all read the same , many are 10ohms
0 ohms shorted, way different burned up, Infinity, burned totally up.

1993 chevrolet silverado 1500 will not start has new filter and pump can spray fuel in to it will start then dies when it runs out of the fuel sprayed it it

It sounds like your injectors are not firing which could be a crank signal problem or wiring,distributor pickup coil problem or a computer problem.One wire to your injector should be pink this is the power wire it should have around 11.5-12 volts with the key on. The other wire is ground that the computer uses to fire the injector which you can check with a good test light hooked to voltage. and work back from that point if you have neither at the injector.

Number tree injector not fireing in a mazda 323f

you mean the #3 fuel injector? start by checking the wire harness that plugs into it. sounds like an internal break in one of the wires. most fuel injectors have power going to them and the pcm grounds each of them individually to make them "fire" the gas charge. it is also possible that the injector is plugged up with debris and you will need to replace the injector. you should have a misfire code for #3 cylinder if you ran a scan with an OBDII error code reader.
