I had a similar issue Got open circuit code on number 2 injector. Off to dealer, replace injector. 30hrs run time later same issue . Tech on this forum stated original repairer should have checked wire harness before replacing injector. Back to dealer. Wire between EMM and injector was the issue not injector.

++ to the guys above!  "Checking the wiring" may not be as thorough as you or the 1st dealer believed.  A tiny crack or pinhole somewhere could be arcing the juice to ground or a break opening up inside the wire insulation, even though it's invisible to the eye.  The heat and motion of even a slight chop could be causing or creating that break to cause "circuit codes" and maybe also frying emm's.

They may have just moved the wiring enough to not create the problem for a short while, before heat and vibration caused the wires to settle again to where the spark could jump or a connection to not be made.

Still hoping for some "easy fix" news!

Ok so it begs the question why your injector went. Also your “computer” too.

Regarding injectors - are you running an external water separating filter? Do you run either ethanol free gas, or alternatively make sure ethanol blended gas never has a chance to sit for any length of time in your engine and gAs tank? Do you know if your fuel system is pulling air somewhere?

Injectors going is often a symptom not a root cause. Keep this in mind.
