Answers :

The car did not start because of electrical problem, could hav been a wiring shorting , or a bad ignition.

When you bypassed replacing the neutral safety switch, you kept using the car with the problem on, and now something else has blown.

You need to test the whole wirings now, do a code scan first, and test ignition and distribution, the injectors should have nothing to do with this.

To test wiring you need the wiring diagrams, buy the Haynes manual.
