Hello, 1987 TR CIS KE injectio

Hello, 1987 TR CIS KE injection. Car starts on cranking and shuts down after a few seconds. After the engine dies you can still hear the fuel pumps running for a short period. If I hold the starter switch to crank, it will continue to run. Checking for B+ at one of the engine ECU’s, I have B+ during cranking, after it starts it loses B+, then engine dies but then I get B+ back for a short period and pumps run for 2 seconds. I have checked all fuses that I can find including the overprotection relay in the right rear corner of the engine compartment. Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks.

Could be the starter relay or

Could be the starter relay or the bypass resistors on the coils.

UPDATE
Thanks guys for send


UPDATE
Thanks guys for sending me in the right direction. I looked at a lot of different thing but finally went to the left coil to see if swapping the ignition modules would make a difference. I noticed that the end of the coil wire was melted and the coil tower was broken. I put a new boot on the coil wire end, pushed it into the coil the whole way and it fired and continued to run. After it was running I unplugged the right ign module and it shut down half the engine but when you unplug the left module the whole engine dies because I am guessing the tach relay loses it's ignition signal. I think what was happening was the spark from the exposed coil wire was jumping into the smaller wires feeding the coil and confusing the ignition module ??????? All I know is it runs now so I will replace the coil and wire and hope that’s it. Thanks for your help.
