Hello I just bought a 99 GV that previous owner gave up on - very rural .
It’s now in Sacramento Ca
So;
Dead batt no codes left
Now charged Cranks
No spark no fuel ( plugs arent wet )

before I start throwing parts at it
Any suggestions ?
IV checked as best I can that the eve is connected the plug to cam sensor is connected
Po said maf threwcode and was cleaned before it died
I have tried disconnecting maf to let it go to limp mode no joy
I checked for spark at plugs
And tried start fluid just to see
But no spark
?

The primary sensors responsible for start,are ECT, AIT, Cam/crank..

The ECT AIT can be read with a live data scanner, the Cam and Crank will require the services of a scope...

There should be a 3 sec prime on the fuel, but requires the ECU to see rotation before fuel pump will run...

ECU (seeing) rotation - it cranks fine but plugs are dry . ?
Or do the cam/ crank controll power to ECM - or: if either are bad no signal gets to ecm ?
Thanks

What lights do you have on the dash when you turn the key on?
Connect a code reader before attempting to start, read codes before cranking & again after cranking, what does it show?

I'm a great believer in asking for pertinent information, and I like accurate answers to my questions.

Are you asking me to believe that the alternator/charge light and oil pressure lights were not on when you turned the key on, along with other "optional equipment" warning lights - ABS, SRS, etc.? I also don't think that a 99GV has a "service soon light".

If you're indeed missing the two lights mentioned above, you need to find out why they are not on.

Sorry I was not clear
All the lights are on when key is turned to on !

it cranks no spark ,
Plugs are dry
Everything I can see is connected
In fact I have un plugged and re plugged everything I can reach
Including all fuses ( checked) and relays - swapped the swappable .

I just went out to car
It’s a build date 12/98
And does indeed have a service engine soon light
It’s a California car if that means anything

thanks again for your time .

Just because the engine cranks, does no mean the ECU sees the rotation...

Do you have bat+ on the pin 16 of the DLC ??

On another note
When I was picking up the car the previous owner said “always take the key out as it sometimes locks the doors on it’s own “
Might there be an imobilizer in this thing ? The key ( only one) is just a key .
today when looking to see if there was power to pin#16 I noticed a tiny switch on lower dash that had a blue light .
Can’t see any alarm horns under hood
Sorry but it was hectic when I picked it up and wasent paying enough attention to the past owner .

Yes those aftermarket additions are always problematic, I have a habit of ditching them and returning everything to OEM..
