Also could it still be the bcm if its getting constant power? I mean is it the bcm that controls the constant to the injector or the pulse?

yes, connect the light to both pins on the plug and crank the engine over and it should pulse...

thanks troyman, i miss the days were if you thought you had a fuel problem you dropped the air cleaner off and manually manipulated the throttle and you could SEE the fuel. Yes injected cars go heaps better but all it takes is one bad wire to potentially throw everything out. Might have to now leave it till tomorrow as she is parked out in the cold and dark and I dont fancy loosing one of the injector pins. So it may still be the BCM....... for a replacement is there anything I need to know about replacement parts i.e codes? I know its an Ef 1994 fairmont and its green and under the dash infront of your left knee

The one I got off you or the one that was originally in it coded 4dcd? Or do you want me to sling you some extra cash? The 4dcf was what I got off you and would be more upgraded than the original, but the original was for a wagon ef fairmont.... so the gearing from what I read is better on the auto?

Just got back from SW the man C's place with some goodies to try to get the Mont going, cant get her into the garage because its under the house with a sharp left turn and down a driveway thats about 30 degree's.... and with no power steering and assisted brakes its not a good idea. Will be tackling the bcm in the morning with vigour and will update the progress.
The BCM, can't remember what you said SWC, I wind down drivers window and lock all dorrs, then turn to reds and wait for it to do the locks...... the doors have to be locked right?
Took me so log too as I thought seing the bosses gps was telling me it could get me home in great time I would trust it......... bad idea. The f**k thing took me on the m5, then on the cumberland and right into a crash on the m4........every time I listern to a chick I get screwed. Sarah the GPS lady is a b**ch who sounds like she needs a good root

No need to lock the doors but make sure every thing is turned off, radio etc.

dropped the new bcm in and still not start. Thought it has to be the pump then, so undid the hoses in the boot after pulling the relay out and there was definate pressure on the hose that had the hose clamp on it because when I pulled it off it hossed and a little bit of fuel came out. Nothing on the line that has the clip. Going to check the manual on how to remove the pump/sender assembly on it but I am thinking dirty fuel maybe? Dropped some garden hose down the filler hole but for some reason could not get down to the fuel so will try while the pump is out.
