The PCM then uses this data to provide the right strategies for the fuel delivery and ignition timing of the engine.

Look for rubbing, scraping, bare wires, worn spots or melted plastic connectors. Pull the connectors apart and carefully look at the terminals (the metal parts) inside the connectors.
