I had a simular problem with a first gen throttle body fuel injectred Escort that was set up to Durby. Some one had cut the wrong wire some where and the fuel injector would not fire, but it did have spark.
To test the injector, just unplug it from the harness and jumper wires to the injector with the car on (pump running) you should beable to see the fuel squirt.

I ended up making my owned stand alone fuel managment. I used one of the 12v timers at my shop that we build for industrail dust collectors. It sends out varible pulse width, I hooked it's output to the injector and ran the pulse duration signal to the car TPS sensor for the higher throttle and used the throttle shut switch for a set idel pulse width. I also used the under voltage signal (dummy light control) from the alternator to tell the system if the motor stalled so it would'nt continue to dump fuel if the motor quit.
It was basicly a Electronic Carb.

Worked great, the car actully made it to a second durby. Still ran after words.

The same thing probably happened here a wire got disconnected that shouldn't have.

Ok so the two wires coming out of the injector 1 is to the car ignition the other gets a pulse from the computer to tell it when to open . right? and you just bypassed the comp and sent the injector your own pulse.
Yep.

I just completely unplugged the injector and grounded one wire and sent the pulse positive signal to the other wire.

AS long as you have spark and fuel presure you can keep the car running by just tapping the positive injector wire on the battery positve, neat hua?
