What type of car is it?

There is likely an ecm(computer) relay. If the relay is goes south it can shut down the injectors, fuel pump, ecm, and the air flow sensor and cause your type of problem. Also if the maf (mass air flow) sensor is going, it will give the ecm incorrect air flow and cause engine problems. In addition on many engines a single fuse may be for several different sensors (such as the o2 sensor and the IAC). If that fuse is bad or corroded etc. then various sensors will not work properly and the ecm will read it as one or more bad sensors and cause engine problems. Do some searching, one of these might just be your problem!

Macc is right on this one - please read the advice/rules, etc. at the top of the forums page concerning information - no one can help if we dont know what kind of car, engine, tranny, and specific symptoms, etc

we also checked the injectors, they were not pulsating
is there power to the injectors will the ecm ground the other wire?

theres 2 fuses 15amp engine and 30 fuel injectors providing power to a constant control relay module this unit will supply a signal voltage to the ecm as well power to the injectors/idle control valve/egr vacuum regulator and other sensors. the ecm will get a signal from the crank sensor to ground the injectors
