03 range rover cranks but, will not start. getting fuel injector and camshaft sensor errors. Sensors are brand new. Getting fuel to the fuel rail at 40psi. Battery and crankshaft sensor is brand new. Old sensor still works. sprayed starter fluid in intake car started up for a brief moment then died once fluid dissolved.

Hi there. Quite often, when you replace sensors and still are getting the error codes, it’s due to the OBD-II trouble codes not being reset after the repairs being completed. However, it could also be a problem with the electrical harnesses connected to those sensors that is actually the source of your problem. I would recommend two steps. First, have a professional mechanic complete a check engine light inspection to clear the stored error codes. Once that has been completed, and if the codes remain, replace the electrical harnesses to those sensors and again, reset the error codes.
