Hi I have a problem that I need information on how to trace it. I have a '86 IROC Camaro with a 305 TPI, the dist. is a GM HEI. I was backing the car up and it was running fine and after I startined it and backed up a couple feet it suddenly quit all at once. I checked the module, cap and rotor and all are fine. When I checked the wire (pink) marked "Bat" with the ign switch on it doesn't have power and there's a plug going into the cap with 3 connectors also with one side marked for power but it has no power coming from it also. I don't have a diagram but believe those two wires are supposed to be "hot" when the switch is turned on. But I don't know where they go but I would guess the ECM but can anyone tell me where to look to trace the problem and why I'm not getting power going into the coil? Also If I check continuity from the single pink pos. wire next to the tach. wire on the cap I have continuity from that positive wire straight to ground, I don't think that should be possible and maybe I have a short? Any further information or pointers on where to look or test would be appreciated, thanks.
