Check the crankshaft position sensor. The crankshaft position sensor is located below the water pump. The alternator bracket will be blocking it and will need to be removed so you can gain access to the sensor if you have to remove it. The connector should be accessable on the engine block so you can measure it without removing the alternator.

The other sensor to check would be the camshaft position sensor. Camshaft position sensor resistance is 835-1400 ohms when engine is cold and 1060-1645 when engine is hot.

sensors

Thanks Bam!
I've looked around ebay and Amazon,and it looks like I can really save on parts online.That's good news!
I'll move the truck under better shelter and tear into the sensors.It appears that the ECU won't function unless it has 'full vision' of all the input signals.
Question,when you travel in the T-100,do you carry spares for everything? It almost seems like it's necessary for these older beaters.
An 'unscheduled' breakdown,out on the road could cost a few expensive nights in a motel,while awaiting a local shop to attempt to get parts.This happened to me in Elko,Nevada once.
Having spares,even with upfront costs,could save in overall cost,as breakdowns aren't a matter of 'if',but 'when.'

Funny story. In the early 70's I had a Triumph. Thought it would be a good idea to carry some spares. So had point, plugs, condenser and a fan belt. Sure enough one night about midnight I hear this loud bang. Investigation revealed the fan belt broke, clean break not worn. Go to put the new belt on, it doesn't fit. Carried that belt for I don't know how long and it doesn't fit.
So if your going to carry spares make sure they are correct.

I basically carry my tools and service manual with me so I can do diagnostics if the time comes. Luckily, it's only been basic maintenance issues and nothing that kept me stranded except when my fuel pump died and that was a local breakdown. I don't carry spares with me as I try to replace suspect parts before I hit the road.

Other online places to try besides Amazon would be RockAuto.com and ToyotaPartsDeal.com.

other online places

Thanks Bam,I'll check 'em out.
*The crank position sensor was okay.
*The cam sensor is new (came with new distributor).
*I'm getting a LED test light which according to the HAYNES manual,will detect the pulse from the igniter to the coil.(if there is one)
*I do have primary voltage at the coil.
*My brother found a Toyota Electrical Manual for the BRZ-FE online and has shipped it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
My guess right now,is igniter or ECM.One of the guys at ToyotaNation said his ECM fried.So I won't fell discriminated against,if this turns out to be the issue.It's a pretty old computer now!
The test light should provide new info.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm being dragged,kicking and screaming into the 21st-Century! Probably a very good thing.

new record high temp and Bondo

*Dallas broke an all-time record-high temp yesterday,at 83-F.I took advantage and did some more body filler on the blister extensions.After sanding and spot-priming they should be okay enough for top-coating.
*Making progress on drawings.
*Making progress on comparative anatomy of auto bodies.(so far,I think that the Renault Vesta-II and M-B Bionic/Boxfish are the best aero shapes I've seen)
The VW Student and Scion iQ/Aston Martin Cygnet are pretty amazing also.

For the lurkers.

Vesta II 0.186 Cd, Boxfish 0.19 Cd. My personal favorite the Volkhart-Sagitta V2 lags at 0.21.

83 between Christmas and New Years?

l'il update

*got the blister extensions painted.
*we'd been under hail threat and I'd re-attached the main hood blister to keep it from blowing away.
*yesterday got to 72-F and I got the original hood blister color sanded,along with the exposed hood area.
*by 3:00 PM I had Spirit covered with a drop cloth, masked off,and I shot it with 2-cans of Rustoleum Acrylic Enamel gloss white.Looks good from 50-yards away.
*I got a few photos and will try to post them Saturday.Copy-Pro's been closed the last two weekends for the holidays.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've got to tear my office apart to get to my computer file which has my old ebay and PayPal data which has languished for years.I may need all this for the online purchases.
*The results from the new test equipment was a little ambiguous,but I couldn't discern any definite signal from the igniter to the coil,nor the ECM to the igniter.Since signals are supposed to be traveling to and from the ECM,any glitch which would dis-enable the ignition would be hard to pin down.The manuals tell you to take the parts to Toyota and have them test them,and don't really offer bench-testing procedures.

If needed I would be willing to pull a car trailer up and back for the testing in spring. It would be a shame to do all this theraeatical design, and then not get the answers as wether or not they work...

trailer

The offer means a lot to me.Thanks! I like to think she'll be running under her own power.
I did get the office tore apart and got to my file folder.I've spent an hour or so at PayPal trying to get reinstated.They don't want to accept the user IDs and passwords I used to use.It's been many years since I used PayPal.
I got a customer care phone number and I'm gonna go back home and see if I get get a human being on the line to help.Nothing I did online worked out.
