Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I left a friends at night had all power and
lights got home went out next morning to
start and battery was dead put a new
battery in then wasn't getting spark
replaced. Ingnition module, sylinoid next
getting ignition coil any other ideas of what
it might be

1 Answer


Unplug the coil connector, then put a test light in between the wo connectors then crank the engine and look for a flashing light, if no light disconnect the spout connector and retry, if you get a flashing light the the ECM is bad, if still no flashing light and you have already replaced the ignition module then you need to replace the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.
