Thread: Sniper EFI won't startup after install.

  1. #1

    Default Sniper EFI won't startup after install.

    Hi From Australia. Just installed a Sniper EFI using 4-wire configuration (standard coil operation). All connections are correct, pink wire has a solid feed, etc. Unit primes pump, cranks & injects cranking fuel, engine fires and then dies, no run fuel is being injected after initial start. All sensors are operational and all connections are correct. I've tried all sorts of things, but to no success. Unit primes with fuel while cranking, car starts & runs until all fuel burnt in the manifold & dies. Looking down the throat, I see the crank fuel injected and then nothing else after start. Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks, from Aussie.

    Ensure the Sniper EFI switched +12V pink wire is powered in the "Crank" and "Run" key positions. If so, ensure there's still an RPM signal after it starts.
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Both of these items have been confirmed. Solid power supply and RPM input is displayed on handheld, after start from crank fuel.

    If it was mine (disclaimer), and I had checked everything you have so far, I'd make sure the fuel pump is running after it starts and has good fuel psi at the TBI. The crank signal dropping out would kill the fuel, but you checked that.

    Done that too Zmann. Pump running, fuel pressure looks good, pressure bypass opening & relieving to tank. Final Holley technical advice after aw eek of back & forward, videos, settings etc., etc., etc. Looks like there's an issue returning it.

    Is it seeing RPM. If it doesn't see RPM, it will not run. Record a datalog and find out.
