oops! it won\'t start

i did something i hope can be fixed cheaply. while reinstalling the breather cover with engine running i managed to ground out the injector wire that had a bare spot on it, it shut down and won't start agian , it did blow the injector fuse, replaced fuse and still won't start, it'll start if i dump a little gas in it'll fire off that, but won't go on it's own, looked at all fuses and fusable links i could find and their good, did i blow a computer circiut that controls injectors, maybe fuel pump relays, stuck need help fast gotta have trruck for work.

Re: oops! it won\'t start

if it's not broke, break it, needed something to do anyway

Looks like you needed something to do. I bet it is more of an inconvenience to you tho. Sorry I am of no help. Hopefully someone will chime in and lend some help.

Re: oops! it won\'t start

make sure you check the breaker(s) too. try a multimeter and check voltage / signal throughout the lines.

Ouch... if you did you fry the ecm, I'd pull one from a junk yard... Also in case nobody knows this already, you can also fry your ecm if you weld on your truck, unplug the battery before you weld.
