No fire to plugs, and fuel pump cuts off after a few seconds.

    The ignition control module is on the right hand side of the engine compartment. Noticing that the pump shuts off while cranking is a good catch because the normal strategy for fuel pump operation is to run the pump for a two second prime, and then shut it off until the PCM confirms that the engine is being cranked by the computer seeing the crankshaft sensor input. The crankshaft sensor according to the schematic says that it is on the front of the left cylinder head. I'll have to do more research on this system.
