My Cirrus would crank but not run at all.

Fuel pump ok

Cam sensor ok

Crank sensor ok

All fuses ok

The is a Purge Valve under the air cleaner plastic behind the engine next to the firewall. It has a 'pigtail' wire connection that runs up the back side of the engine. These two wires are insulated but the insulation had rotted away and these two wires were touching each other grounding out the spark to the coil pack.

Replaced this 'pigtail' wire connector in 15 minutes. Baaa-Boom!!!

Running like a top!!!
