As the title suggests, my daughter's 06 is not starting. It was hard-starting for a little while (she didn't tell me about this until recently). It cranks over fine. Immediately I thought of the fuel pump as apparently there has been an issue with fuel pump pressure on these. It has over 250k km on it so I fugured it was probably about time. I put a new pump in (Denso) which didn't remedy the problem. I removed the plugs (replaced last fall) a while after attempting to start after replacing the pump, and 3 of the 4 plugs were damp.....so it seems to be getting some fuel at least.
I don't want to start throwing parts at it....as I have already done with the fuel pump it seems. The fuses seem fine, and I swapped out the relay for the one in our other 06 Vibe which did not resolve the no-start issue.
I would like to test the coils............and also ensure that the coils are getting the pulses. My question pertains to the wiring for the coil connectors. Which of the 4-wires would be the one generating the pulses for the coil? The connector are 4-wire....ground, hot, pulse, and ?
Could someone by chance point me in the right direction as to how I would check for a pulse at each connector, and perhaps where I would go to next?
Thank you in advance,
