Re: No Spark Hhellppp

Do you have voltage at the ignition system?
Do you have a good ground contact?

Re: No Spark Hhellppp

The coil has 2 small primary wires (red and white) that plug into it.

Take a 12v test light with a sharp point, and check the white wire while cranking. (with the connector still plugged in)

It should flash.

If it doesn't, I would suspect the ignition module in the distributor since you say you already replaced the pickup coil.

How have you determined there is no spark?

Exclamation Re: No Spark Hhellppp

i know there is no spark because i took all the plugs out and grounded them and checked for spark, and i checked for spark from the i9gnition coil its self, and the ECM IS new, or is and ignition module someting different than the ECM??

Re: No Spark Hhellppp

As I mentioned in my first post, the ignition module is located in the distributor.
