97 318i fuel pump and ignition coil wont work

Ive tested the crank sens, relays, coil, fuel pump, fuel pump will turn on if jumped, coil has right continuity still cant get to run could the crank sensor still be be bad even if the ohms test at 565? if anyone has some suggestions it would be much appreciated

Did you test both the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor?

Crank position sensor should be 1280 ohms, + or - 10%. If yours is at 565, it's way out of range.

Check your main relay and all fuses.

crank sensor

that is what I had read that it should be about 1250 so I ordered one from the bmw dealer it tested at 585 so I figured that one should be right I also ordered one from the local auto parts store and it was at 0 so I guess the OEM one could be bad right out of the box as well, it also has a missing kick down switch underneath the gas pedal would that affect the fuel pump and coil?

I'd be suspicious of your meter. And no, a missing kickdown switch won't matter.

You have a test light? If not, get one. You'll need it. According to my wiring diagram, the fuel pump relay has a shared power feed with the DME, ALDL, the DME relay, and the TCM. All have one fusible link that feeds them. Before you take apart your DME housing, I would suggest backprobing an injector connector with a thin lead, and use the test light to see if the injectors are pulsing. If they are, you can confirm the problem is not that fusible link, as the injectors will NOT pulse if the DME has no power. If they do not pulse, I would test terminal number 14 on your ALDL, as that should be power all the time, and you do not need to take anything apart to test it. If that has power, I would look and see if the DME has power on terminal 26, on the connector side. Make sure to be very careful while testing these terminals, do not just shove the test light in them as they will spread. You should get a piece of bare wire, put that in, and test off of that.

Also, do your coils have power on the green wire when the ign is on? They should regardless of the DME status.

Green Relay

Was checking the fuses and relays, found a pine green six pin relay part, number 6136-8350566 underneath passenger side dash next to the CPU and it has burnt terminals. Does anyone know what this part does?
