ok so first off i have a 93 dohc f20b swapped coupe, with the battery relocated to the trunk, and its wire tucked(which is where i may have f'd it up lol, but anyways, before i did the wire tuck she ran great, but now that i have everything back together the car starts and immediatly dies, ive checked for spark and fuel and both are good, ive also checked the tps, map at both the sensors and ecu. now i should also tell you that at first all the dash lights came on normally, then after a few times the brake and seatbelt lights would be on like normal while the cel,oil and batt. lights were really dim for about 5-10sec then came on fully, but then they went back to normal for the rest of yesturday. Well to day i found a ground that goes to the small clear connector in the fuse box under the hood wasnt hooked up, so i hooked it up and tried starting it a few times and still nothing then on the last try then cel,oil,batt lights dimmed again for about 5-10 sec then came on fully also while they were dim the fuel pump doesnt prime and the ignition chime doesnt sound, the cel somes on for 2 sec like normal and goes out.

Anyone have an idea of something i should check? i have an extra ign. switch just in case

ugh its happening again only its acting alot wierder, at first it just cranked then fired up and dies a sec later but when i tried giving it gas it would rev very slowly but now if i try to keep it running itll have a very erratic throttle response it alternates between slow revs to really fast and no throttle response, but not in any real order

problem was resolved over 2 years ago which is why no one has posted here in that long but it was my map sensor, it was wired wrong
