Not present in OBD2.
Good to know, now I sound silly
There is a rs300 under the seat, never had the original keys or fob, always unlocked the car with the spare key. Would this be able to cause a crank and no start? thought they cut signal to the starter? I'll rip it out tomorrow anyways, just to make sure. unplugging it from the box causes a no crank, have to go through and trace down the wiring. Mine has the glass breaker sensor if anyone wants it.If the spark plugs are wet then your problem is ignition. Does your 80 have the theft deterrent system under the driver seat? I believe those were called RS3000. This little unit has stumped more than a few members.
Have you verified whether or not there is spark?
There is spark, pulled the plugs and grounded them on the valve cover. they looked a little old so replaced all 6. still had spark when grounded, also have checked the cam and crank sensors, as well as the coil pack, looked inside the dizzy and its all clean and nice. tested the high tension cord and all of the plug wires. All were good.
So far, I've verified we have fuel. tested the EFI relay, Circuit opening relay, and fuel pump relay, all are good. tested the fuel pump, and it turns on and squeals like it used to, can feel pressure in the return line as well. tried turning the car over with the fuel pump jumped, and it wanted to fire over, sputtered a few times but wouldn't catch. This is better then just cranking. Tested the fuel pump resistor per the FSM, it says .7-.74 ohm's, my s***ty tester had it at .9 ohms. Don't think this is the issue as jumping the fuel pump would bypass that.
So, I have spark. I have the CEL light on when cranking, and I have fuel. The fusible link is new and connections were cleaned and tested. continuity was fine for all. Highly doubt my compression would've gone when the car was sitting, but what is the easiest way to verify mechanical timing?
Car has no stored codes and half a tank of fuel. One thing to note is when the engine is cranking the tach barely moves. never gets up off of the bottom where it rests when the car is off. Is this normal?
