I can't find a break in the wires. Could it be a relay or injector


Possible causes: Faulty Fuel Injector 3, Fuel Injector 3 harness is open or shorted, Fuel Injector 3 circuit poor electrical connection...If the code is combine with other fuel injector codes (P1225, P1226, P1228, P1229, P1230) it's possible that the problem is the Fuel Pump Relay.
