If the DME does not get the correct signal from the crank sensor, the car will not start. There are some smart scan tools out there that can monitor the crank sensor signal. It would be prudent to check that before pulling the trans.
sorry, I didn't see your post. I drove the car right into the garage so it started and ran just fine before this whole ordeal. This thing is just a nightmare.
