Plug it in and read codes first,could be injector or loom fault but you need code first to point in right direction.

Hi Paul  welcome5

Please don't use all upper case!!

You need to scan the system to confirm that there's no electrical fault in the injector wiring as that sounds like a dodgy injector loom/connectors

Fuel system fine and pump fine... how do you know that? New wiring loom or replacement loom? It's not unknown for places to swap them with old looms from another car...
