It's a living nightmare took the harness of a 92 to try on a 93 swift that wouldn't start gave up put everything back on 92 now it won't start. Turn the key the fuel pump doesn't prime and no spark when cranking. changed the ecm both fuse boxes distributor relays checked all the grounds took the 93 to a good mechanic I trust he gave up after 2 hours. I'm hoping it may be something simple that I've over looked have to get car out of the place or scrap it.
if someone could please help thanks

I've had the same problem twice, once on a 93 and once on a 94. No fuel pump and no spark. The 94 was a bad ground off the main relay. The 93 was and odd one, the wire running from the egr sensor had worn through it's coating and shorted out on the wire holder causing the main relay fuse to keep blowing. Neither were easy to diagnose AT ALL. At one point I had the left front fender off and every harness completely stripped apart to test continuity to the various wires. This took WAY more that 2 hours. I was into it for a couple days before I figured it out. The egr sensor sits on the driver side of the intake manifold and the wires run straight down to a flexible wire retainer mounted to the top of the transmission. Check there to make sure they are not shorting. Also replacing the main relay, relay fuse, and running a new ground off the main relay are all good ideas and simple enough to do. Forget chasing the old relay ground, it is a serious pain. Hope this helps!
