removed alternator. ECM fried died no start
removed alternator form 93 3.3L started it up without alternator to just move the car real quick across drive.,, it started ran for about 5-10 seconds then died. restarted thn ran for about 2 seconrds died again.. will not start run nothing any more,, hiccup or backfire pop slightrly once in a while trying to start but will not start at all. ran new wires to CPS and replaced CKPS and CPS both new ones and still nothing.. have orange wire hot with ASD relay and FP primes and everything like should be.. wtf happened? ive tried and thrown EVERYTHINGF possible at it,.,. gone through all wiring all uses all links all relays and yanked out the pcm and took it apart even done it all!! i researched and found out exactly how the sensors and pcm is wired up and how they trigger and run ignition and injection etc totally.,
sooo... you apparently cant start/run these cars without alternator connected? wtf!! thats some real BS ! was a perfect running driver until i rmoved alternaor and front brackets and ps pump stuff for repairs.. and this aint the first damned time ive had the front stuff off this 3.3L and also had engine mounts unbolted and all that.. for other repairs work in the past and there was no issue at all then! but i never evne turned no the key with the alt removed unplugged back then! someonbody HAS to know something whats going no here!! this damned car!! also it has had in the past some issues with randmo misfiring chugging loss of power on highway and driving in general.. a history of it and for no rason at all unknown still to this day but it came out of it and i found that the MAP sensor had died. maybe that was what was going on the MAP was dying off and on.. apparently. the car is worth about a nickel at the very most its beat to all hell and totally rotted out rusted out rockers etc are gone toasted. and alot of the interior and back seats are gone rmeoved streipepd and door panels too,.
and never was maintained for shit and reverse is gone and trans has already been screwed up shifting for years now but it still will drive evn on highway but its jerky alot til it get to speed haha. and it leaks uses oil but it runs good and always reliable never got stranded ever, and drives great still so id like to fix it?? but wtf is wrong!!?? i know its not the engine!! it still runs great strong fine! its some damned stupid electrical crap!
