HELP. Problems with EA/L (no power)

Well after loosing a drag to an 84 XF carby 3speed im determined to get my car fixed properly.

For those who dont know i have an EA with EL ignition/MPFI/ECU/Loom/Dash/Interior.

Im assuming my problems stem from the computer or associated electronics, as i cant get the self test conector to work. I earth the upper left pin and probe the upper 5th and lower 2nd pin however i dont get any codes. The relays click in the KOEO test to indicated its been initiated. Ive got the KOEO to work once and got codes relating to the AC and Thermos which i know arent hooked up properly at the moment. However after i did that KOEO (After 10attemps) i have never been able to extract codes since.

Going on from that ive never been able to exctract codes for the KOER test either. I set up the test equipment as said above and the engine revs rise to 1500rpm for 5sec to indicated self test, but no codes are put out!!!!!!! WIERD!

Problem 2

When Ive initated the KOER test ive hooked up a timing light to look at timing (thinking this would be a source of lack of power). Now when the car revs up to 1500rpm during the first 5-10 sec of the koer test the timing marker sits dead on the 10btdc marker. However what i find wierd is that when i rev it during the KOER test the timing marker moves away from 10btdc as if the ECU is controling the timing. When the KOER test isnt inniated the timing beahves the same as if it is in KOER test.

Also when i remove the jumper earthing out the test pin and puting teh car into KOER the car stalls.

Does Anyone have any idea whats going on. Im 95% sure my car has its own AI designed to piss me off.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh btw, i dont have a knock sensor installed/hooked up, im hoping that wouldnt cause all these problems.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............
