My 2000 Sephia stalled on the way home - fuel pump went out.
Replaced that and the proportion valve but it is now lacking signal to the injectors.
Direct connection shows that they work but they do not receive the signal.
Replaced cam sensor - still no signal for injectors.
Open to suggestions...

Suggestion, use a diagnostic approach, it always works out cheaper than throwing parts at it.

What's the mileage, the service history, when last was the timing belt kit changed, oil, oil filter, fuel filter, .........

Try starter fluid, and if it starts it confirms that you have a fuel delivery problem, if it doesn't. check for spark, and check the timing belt and timing marks.

Thank you VERY much for forcing me to check the timing belt.
Approx 6" of belt had no notches in it!
Replaced that and problem is fixed.
Thanks!

Good to hear.

Remember that this is a non-interference engine, and you won't be so lucky if you overlook this kind of maintenance on other vehicles.
