Is there suffecient voltage going INTO the PCM? Does the CHECK ENGINE light come on with the key? Does the fuel pump run?

    is there at least reference coming out of the PCM to the sensors?

1994 Chrysler lhs cranks over but wont start. Acts like it wants to start but wont. ive got no voltage going to crank sensor no voltage to coil pks no voltage to cam sensor and fuel pump not runnning

Sounds like a bad pcm to me. Both the crank and cam sensors should have nearly 8 volts on the orange wire to them, with key in on. That is the 8 volt reference signal to them, and it comes from the pcm at connector pin #7.

I have a 99 chevy K3500 the guages do not work and it will crank over but won't start. I dont have fuel pressure. I replaced the fuel pump, crank sensor throttle position sensor and ignition module, and...

Did you check B+ power and ground's for the PCM ,look a wiring diagram ! Do you have access to wiring diagrams . Pin # 16 in the DLC should have B+ voltage ,does it ? This power's the scan tool . Also ,do you know anything about PCM / ECM five volt reference voltage ? This supply's a steady 5volts to engine sensors . If a sensor is shorted it will bring down the refrenece volt circuit inside the PCM/ECM causing no start condition . Does the vehicle have spark ? Did you test for a no spark condition ?

2003 s10 blazer cranks no start . when I was trying to test the crank sensor signal wire I found 10 volts present with ignition on not cranking. the ground wire has 12.5 with the key off and 12.21 volts...

Will a scan tool communicate with it or on the screen does it say NO COMM ! That's how you test a PCM/ECM . If no comm ,check power an ground's ,that's it .
Why were you messing with the crank sensor ? If the fuel pump primes for two seconds there is nothing wrong with it . When cranking the engine the PCM/ECM will only energize the fuel pump if it see's an input from the crank sensor ! You will not see 12 volts on the crank sensor signal return wire ! Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor
The CKP sensor is a three wire sensor based on the magneto resistive principle. A magneto resistive sensor uses two magnetic pickups between a permanent magnet. As an element such as a reluctor wheel passes the magnets the resulting change in the magnetic field is used by the sensor electronics to produce a digital output pulse. The PCM supplies a 12-volt, low reference, and signal circuit to the CKP sensor. The sensor returns a digital ON/OFF pulse 3 times per crankshaft revolution for the V6 engine, 4 times for the V8 engine. The CKP sensor reads the crankshaft mounted reluctor wheel to identify pairs of cylinders at top dead center (TDC).

Eng starts hard,runs good until the rpm is over 2200 then it stumbles my input voltage on the cam sensor is 5volts ,on most cars i've read should have 8volts where

Both crank and cam sensors have a 8 volt reference I have found the wiring melted together where it cross over transmission shorting out the signal. also test your reference voltage at the computer with circuit unplugged at sensor watch meter and wiggle wiring going back to computer this will help find faulty area.

2001 jetta vr6 cranks but won't start have fuel and spark replaced camshaft sensor, new plugs valve cover gasket got code of PO343 and PO740

code po740 refers to torque converter clutch(TCC) solenoid-circuit malfunction==causes --wiring--TCC solenoid-ECM/TCM
code p0343 refers to cam shaft position sensor(CMP) A bank1-high input.==causes --wiring short to positive--CMP sensor---ECM. check which cam sensor you replaced and check the wiring connectors. use a code reader to reset the cpu when finished

No power to injector curcit, checked system with nod light no power to light

You could still have powert at the plug. A noid light only tests a completed circuit.
Check for power with a volt meter or test light. There should be power with the key on. If there is power. then you have to look at the crank sensor, cam sensor, and ecm. Crank sensors are mostly for the spark. Cam sensors are mostly for the injectors. But they both work together to send a signal to the ecm, which controls the injectors ground. If you have 12 volts at the injector plug, then I would start with the cam sensor. Also have the ecm checked for codes. this will tell you alot.

My 1990 riviera will run great, as you are going down the road it will shut off,but crank right backup. whats wrong?

Check the ECM part number. If it is a 1228253 that is your problem. get a 16198264 the other number does just what your car is doing. I worked at a Buick dealer and know about the problematic 1228253 ecm.

ECM not providing pulsed ground to TBI. used noid light to test (no light), tested for power (12 volts found). suspected possible ECM, purchased one at salvage yard and replaced (did not fix). checked...

Yes, correct. There is only the cam sensor in the distributor for the ecm's cam/crank reference signal. Many factors are figured in for pulse width, getting the air/fuel mixture correct.
Have you checked the ground for the ecm? The CEL does work? Too odd that both computers had no injector ground control, you must have missed something. Use an ohmmeter when you checked for continuity on the injector ground wire?

A 2004 Dodge stratus with the 4 cylinder that will not start

code p 16 refers to crankshaft position/cam shaft position bank 1 sensor A--correlation====causes ---wiring---CKP sensor ( crankshaft position sensor )---mechanical fault

code p 0340 refers to -camshaft (CMP) sensor A bank 1 circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM
cosrs nothing to check the timing belt , just remove the oil filler cap and see if the rockers are moving when turning it over
the clue here may be bewteen the 2 codes , the word correlation and circuit malfunction so check the wiring, harness connections for pin corrosion and then substitute the ECM with a know good unit as the correlarion and circuit malfunction could be in the ECM
if the ECM program is not getting good reports for both sensors then it reasons that the piston and cam shaft are not timed properly and so will not allow it to start
