How the problem originally started?
On 89 camry code 51 (five flashes -pause flash- long pause) has nothing to do with igniter.
On Camry TCCS the fuel will not be injected if ECU getting no feedback signal from igniter
verify that you have power on black/orange wire that goes to ignition coil using 3.4 watt light bulb, not voltmeter or LED tester
if so attach analog voltmeter positive probe to the tach test terminal at distributor (uncap it) and negative probe to the cyliner head (good ground)
set ithe scale to 20 VDC
tape meter to the windshield
crank the engine
if needle jumps between 0 and 6 volts the primary circuit of ignition coil, igniter, ECU and pick-up coils inside distributor are working
