When you have a generator with a inverter in it you have to be careful of overloads an static electricity. More than likely one or more otf the MOSFETs has blown. An inverter is really a switching supply. Not very hard to replace parts but if you have spme skill with electronics take it apart an give it a go. If transistors have not blown you may find a blown fuse inside on circuit board. You will never find a schematic for any of these units. They are protected because the dealers pay to much for selling rights you cant hardly get them. But i would take it apart an see what you have. Or find a good electronics guy an ask him to check it

Car has dieing while going dwn rd. Sometimes wjll start rght back up, other times we wait sometimes hrs. I've checked the coil pack& module both pcm &ecm were checked by g&s auto and said...

Code 17 & 18 are crank/cam correlation codes. Depending on what car you have, some sensors are dual sensor, crank and cam in one. Some are set up with up to three sensors. One crank and one or two cam sensors. I you have a dual sensor, I would replace it, but check the plug first. Sometimes corrosion can mess with sensors. Just unplug it and plug it back in. This usually takes care of contact issues. Clear the light and see if that code comes up again. If you have two or more sensors, then we are talking timing belt issues. To check code 26, you will have to check for voltage on that wire. Pinout and color codes are needed to find the wire from the ECM. Again not knowing your car, voltage could be 5,8, or 12 volts. Or real close to these numbers. If you don't see any voltage from here, the ECM is bad. Quad drivers either work or don't work. 56 is an 02 heater code. This could make the car run a little rough, but not cut out. Now the injector test, if you didn't get a reading from the injector, it is bad. This will make the run real bad, Because you lost that cylinder.

IF you have a seperate coil (1 coil only) check for correct voltage for the coil as most start on 12 volts and run on 7 volts and have a resistor in the circuit. Randomj misfire may be the coil breaking down as it gets too hot from the incorrect voltage

Try to find a way to ascertain if it is up to speed. Either check rpms or frequency of the AC voltage. If it is < 60 hz the engine is likely running too slow, thus the low voltage.

I have a 2001 Explorer Sport Trak and it don't want to start. We have checked all the sensors (crankshaft, cam trigger, fuel pump pressre is 65). What is the tank fuel pressure sensor voltage reading. ...

The first thing to check would be spark. This can be done by connecting a spark plug tester to a plug wire while the engine is cranking. The tester must be grounded to the engine block for a good electrical connection.. Your fuel pump pressure is OK.
The problem should be electrical so check
1. No voltage to the fuel injectors (blown injector fuse or bad relay)
2. No pulse signal to the injectors from the PCM (no crank or cam sensor input to the PCM, or a bad driver circuit in the PCM, or a wiring harness problem)
3. A shorted fuel injector (robs voltage from the other injectors so none will operate)
