850 engine problem
I have a 91 BMW 850I, I am having a problem getting no signal or electricity to the Fuel Injectors on the left side of motor.

I have done the following test on my own and they are. The 3 computers - tested ok
2 speed sensors - tested ok
2 camshaft sensors - tested ok

2 air flow meters - working ok
2 throttle bodies - working
fuel to both sides - working ok

Any help with this problem would be great.

That must be a V12 right? There should be a ground for the fuel injectors. Usually is taken from one of the coils from that side. Have you checked that?

your saying that the ground comes from the coil to the injectors?

There is a ground that comes from one of the coil and goes into the engine wiring harness(to the fuel injectors). Is a brown wire under one of the coils. Check the other side for something similar. I have not worked yet to a 91 V12 but the other BMW early 90 have it. It should be there...

Have you checked the back spark plug on that side? If it is fouled the sensor on that side will tell the engine controller for that bank to shut off the fuel.

Checked the ground, that is ok - thanks JOY.

I will check the back plug to see if is fouled, thanks Terry
