She started guys!!

I just got done putting everything back together about 30min eariler so I could post the battery data and when I turned the key she just roared to life. Idk maybe me cleaning every crack corner and sensor might have been the fix or the PCM just needed another reset. But either way im gonna just call it a night and test everything out tomorrow. I'll keep you guys posted, thanks a ton for all the help and advice this far!

Ya might still want to get that battery tested, or at least charge it. It's a tad bit low. You should have at least 12.5 in it. Just saying.

Your ok. I took it to get checked and charged before I had successfully started it. As of yesterday it's running at 12.7V

Make sure you are getting 13.5 volts or higher with the engine running.
