    I'm so close guys just need some wiring help.

    I don't have anything from my harness to connect to my starter solenoid relay (male fitting on starter). So what exactly do I do?

        Still haven't gotten it to start.

        I have spark and fuel is going into the rail but the injectors aren't firing. I'm assuming it is something electrical because there is no way all six of my injectors are bad.

          Are you using an E34 or E36 harness? On my E34 harness I had the same issue because the injector power cable is run to some post on the bottom of the thing that holds the 3 relays. Moved that to the power post in the bay and it fired right up.

              Pretty sure it's an e36 harness. I do have an extra cable that runs down near the starter. Is that the same one you are talking about? I checked to see if it was a hot wire though and it wasn't.

                your fuel line are on backwards.

                I do this everytime i put a 24Valve into a car. its tradition now. With the exception of when i put my S50 into my car, i managed to get it right.

                  Yeah I had them backwards at first but I fixed them and they injectors still aren't firing.

                    Damn it. Sounds exactly like what happened to me and it was that power wire. Check the wires coming back from the injector harness then because they have their own like power wire. Like I said on the E34 harness, there was a little read wire with a connector on it that bolted to the under side of the deal that holds the 3 relays.

                    Other than that, I can't really speculate as I never wired a harness adapter. I cheated and bought a treehouse adapter.

                    You know what you need to do is stare at the car quietly for like 5-10 minutes. Let all frustration go. Go to Chipotle, get your delicious burrito and sit down and just think quietly. Give it a couple minutes and it will come to you. You will feel like a total idiot though because it's going to be something so small..

                      haha best advice I've got.

                      But a slight update. I have signal 12v going to the injectors so I'm getting signal. I tried to test the injectors by using a battery and i still couldn't get the injectors to fire.
                      I'm starting to think my injectors are bad but I just can't bring myself to believe that somebody sold me bad injectors.

                        I also feel like the likelihood of all 6 being bad is pretty slim. And yeah I didn't realize you had power at them. Good luck man.

                          Well, tested all 6 of them and even had a mechanic come double check and we couldn't get them to open. I guess some how all 6 are bad which is really odd...time to buy some new ones.

                                Was it the injectors?
