A mobile automotive locksmith may have the equipment needed to diagnose a passlock issue. Good luck
When passlock is triggered the starter will crank but no fuel pulse is sent to the injectors. Usually the passlock light will flash on the guage cluster when attempting to start then stay lit solid after.Hey guys new to this forum, I usually don't have to ask questions. but looking for some hints/tips, with this truck. I bought this 2004 Colorado for my son it has the I5 3.5 motor, the old one ran fine, it had 230+k miles on it and was wore out. Thought it would be a good father son project to put a new motor in.
We did a refab motor from autozone, the swap went good, no abnormal issues (i've done this a few times, not a complete newb). We didn't do any mods either, just old motor out new motor in. We got the new motor in, the motor turns over but no ignition.
On install we replaced the alternator, Nox Vidmate VLC crank position sensor, double checked all the ground leads and connections.
It's getting fuel pressure, though not sure how to check fuel injectors are firing since they are burried under the intake manifold.
I pulled the codes, but nothing, though I'm not sure it would through any codes until it actually starts.
The only sensors I know of that will flat out keep it from starting are the crank position sensor and cam position sensors. We will replace the cam sensors today.
I'm looking for any other insight as to what could be keeping it from starting.
