    The link to the ad tells all I have on the car that did not come in the binder with the car.

    PS: Want to sell it back to me, I'll be back in the market in the next few months if I get approvals from my Dr.

    DTA can reflash and help diagnose issues:

    link@dtafast.co.uk

    I've emailed them in the past when I had the car and they were quite receptive about adding a more aggressive tune had I not had my downturn and sold the car in a weak moment......

    Assuming there are no other issues (cranks, has spark, fuel pump runs, etc) and you've confirmed no power to all injectors with a multimeter, I'd start by tracing the common 12v+ wire that feeds the injectors. It could be as simple as that wire was disconnected from the source, or there is corrosion or a break within the insulation. Hopefully it's not the DTA, but I've heard of ECUs in se7ens succumbing to vibration over time and breaking solder joints.

    Something doesn't want me to post on this site. Last night the Wi-Fi at work blocked the usa7s web site then this morning I got an error stating that my token had expired. It erased a rather long post that I had typed.

    Sorry Bill, the car will never be for sale. Took me too long to get one. I had wanted one of these since I was in grade school. The first car model i ever made was of a Lotus 7.

    John,

    All fuses are good, spark in all 4 cylinders, engine cranks, and there is fuel flow so your idea about the positive lead is probably spot on. I hate to work w/o a wiring diagram but it's time to get serious and just do it.

    I'm working graveyard shift this week so it will be next week before I get to it.

    I believe the common way to do this with wasted spark Zetecs is to tap into the same 12v+ that feeds the coil pack. If that's the case, tracing that wire to the source might be pretty easy and fully contained under bonnet. Hope it's easy to find and easy to fix!

    Gary,

    Never hurts to ask Hopefully the trace and fix comes a little easier....Most of all, enjoy the ride.
