Need to ground the green wire to enable the relay. Can also pickup that wire at the coolant temperature switch.

I need help Shane ! Icreated a spark , when i lowered the steering column, and have no idea where it came from.. Right now it will start every time and run about 2 or 3 seconds then dies every time..I tried a different computer and no change..I tried MAF,, I even bought the new AXIS and chip from FULLTHROTTLE ... No change ... I feel i have fried a circuit .. but i have no idea or where ...Any suggestions would sure be appreciated...

Don't think Shane is in to responding to threads...
Sounds like you may have an issue w/ the fuel pump prime/ run circuit. Initial key on runs the pump for a few secs, then shuts off, unless the ecm sees a tach signal. [Sounds like the engine is running just long enuf to burn off the initial prime fuel.] Or, if it's still working, the pump bypass sw will close at about 4psi oil pressure. It's located below the turbo.
I'd suggest you disconnect the batt, drop the column down, and inspect the wiring. There are several wires plugged into the area on the top of the column.
When you dropped the column, you may have pulled a hot wire out of a plug, and shorted it to grnd.
Could be the run side of the ign is not hot when the key is released back to "run".
Have you checked all the fuses?
Do you have a wiring schematic?

How about front side marker lights not working. checked from light socket to frame and don’t have 12 volts. All other lights work.
all fuses good. Chase blu/brn and blk/brn back to firewall but cant tell where they go after that.
sorry if I’m hijacking a thread

Those wires go to the bulk head connector (C100) that is near the brake booster. Then into the interior of the car.
