    Pretty sure i fried my car computer..

    Last month when I was pullin out the batt, the positve lead hit the chassis of the the car and it wouldnt start. I was in a rush, and figured i blew a fuse somewhere, so I let it go. Turns out, it wasnt a fuse. They are all fine. The car starts to turn over, then stops. Its not low voltage, and I dont think its the fuel or spark.

    I sprayed starting fluid directly into the TB, and it did nothing. I am getting spark at the coil pack, I got the shock to prove it. After talking to a couple people, they belive I fried the cars computer. Can anyone else think of what it can be before I drop 70 on a new one?

    Its a 91 s10 blazer as well 4.3l v6

    Okay it is not the computer. Im guessing its either the distributor cap, or maybe the rotor. I have to go out and see if Im getting spark in a few.

    Im getting spark from the coil pack to the cap. But Im not getting any spark from the cap itself. I just bought a new rotor and cap, and will be waking up at 6 am tomorrow to get it in.

    I have to get the car running, register it, and start to build the ***** out of my wall.


    One crazy day for sure. If anyone has any other ideas ideas as to why its not starting, please let me know.

    Check your ECM. I had an 88 S-10 and did the same thing. It is the little 4 pin (IIRC) module in the bottom of the distributor. Autozone will test it for free for you. They run about 30-40 bucks.
