    ok '04 explorer has no crank, no fuel problem. I checked the starting system it all checks out from key to starter except the relay is not recieving a ground from the pcm. When I jumper the wire to a ground at the pcm (with the connector disconnected) it will crank but not start (maybe because the connector was unpluged)

    When i jumper the starter solinoid (with a remote starter switch) it will crank over but not start. When i spray starter fluid in the intake it will start. I havent climbed under the truck to test for power at the pump because i thought it may be related to the ground prob
    PCM-maybe
    or
    PATSII

    thx for your time

    Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the stock 2002-2005 section. Do you have a spare PATS key?

    What does the red light on top of the dash do when you try to start it?
