OK. I've got a 7MGTE and it cranks but won't start. The #1 and #2 coil packs are not firing. I checked continuity in the coil packs, the igniter, and the harness between. All fine. I sent out and had the ECU rebuilt. Did a spark test on all the plug wires with the #3 coil pack and they're fine. I checked the timing, and the timing mark lines up with TDC #1. I pulled and inspected the cam position sensor and it works perfectly, aside from a cracked dust cover and cover seal, which should be here wednesday. Anyone know what's going on? I've been under that hood everyday for a week it seems, and I'm at a loss. Anyone had a similar problem? Anyone know about something I missed? Any ideas would be great, as I'm desperate to get that monster back on the road.

I'm gonna give it a shot, but do you know the voltage I should be seeing from those wires? Is it roughly 12V, or something wacky? About the jumping of the coil packs, they're not the problem. I swapped both the #1 and #2 with the #3 and they all worked. Thanks for the help, man. I'm gonna go test those wires now.

Yeah there's supposed to be 12v at each coil plug with the ignition on. They share a common connection to +12v at the back of the main plug where it splits to the three individual plugs.

all toyota's are hiddious to work on.

You think the 7m oil filter is bad? Try the 2jz RHD supra or aristo... OMG shoot me.
Ha ha. I guess we need nimble asian fingers. Anyway, I fixed it. $300 ECU r&r, $70 igniter, and $60 tow later, (yeah, they won't let me work on my car in my apartment complex...) I find that it's one worn out wire that needed a 24 cent connector replaced. God-damned 'Yotas. I've never been so pissed off/elated in my entire life. At least the the guys who worked on my ECU updated it. It runs much smoother. Now to pop my RS*R springs on to that bitch. If it's not one thing, it's another...

I think it's the wire to the water temp controller, (forgive me, I'm learning...)which fell off as soon as I disconnected it. Almost 300,000 miles on that car, and Toyota's shitty wiring on the 7M, I should've known. Whatever, my ECU got updated and now it runs super smooth. There's a plus. Not a $400 plus, but whatever. I got my baby back. That's all that matters.
