more info were did you get power for the deck and amp if you put one

if you did something wrong the best is undo your system put every thing back how it was

Im getting the power from the wiring harness but the speakers werent working until I hooked up the blue wire with a white line from the harness to the deck. I disconnected the deck with the harness but my SC just cranks and doesnt turn on.:(

I suspect a bad ignition switch.....

Try backing off the rotation of the key a little bit when you are cranking and see if she fires up....

Pretty sure this is related to the IRCM mentioned in the attached post. In addition to the fan I believe it also controls the AC and fuel pump. Check the shrader valve on the fuel rail and see if you have any fuel pressure with key on.

I thought it might be that also..so I bought one at autozone and plug it in but my car didnt even crank..does it need to be actually mounted to the steering colum to work??

Hey David,
I got no fuel pressure at all! If you are correct, I NEED that small black box ASAP!! Do you know if the numbers have to be the same??:confused:

I don't know what the differinces are year to year. I would assume that 89-93 are the same. Suggest you contact this guy.

Well I got a replacement IRCM exactly the same part numbers..the radiator fan stopped staying on, so I no longer have that problem anymore..but my SC still wont turn on and theres no fuel pressure! I checked the fuses all around again and noticed that the box under the hood had the 2 smaller fuses the wrong size and 1 fuse had gone out!:(
