are the injectors firing ? some cars need proper fuel pressure and spark , just having them won't do

thanks for your respond. When I take out the injectors and try to start petrol is coming out and the spark cables when I put screwdriver to contact with earth or body it shows sparks. And if I may ask. can bantam be diagnosed?

Check all of the fuses and Relays, If there starter relay has a short circuit, you will crank it but no spark. Have you changed the engine ? If you have fitted the new engine, the original Fly wheel has to be fitted to your new engine. The engines with the smaller Computer Box the flywheen has 36 teeth minus 2 theeth and the earlier fly wheels have 36 minus 1 tooth. Check also the current draw on the main starter cable as too much current draw will cause a lack of current going to the PCM.
