98 Maxima cranks but won't start...have replaced camshaft sensor and crankshaft pos sensor, fuel filter, fuel pump, cleaned IAC and EGR (since I was in there) and new battery, new starter...checked MAF...checks good at the sensor...when I am trying to start it, cranking the engine, the rpm gauge does not move at all.
I check with the torque app and no rpm registers in it either.
any suggestions for next steps?
I did also pull and visually check the ECM and there are no apparent bad spots or components on either side of the board.
how can i check the crank sensor inputs to the ecm?
where can i find a diagram for the ecm connector so that i can ohm the wires from the MAF and ckps-pos and ckps - ref?
thank you in advance for helping!
