Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a1994 Dodge Dakota SLT 4x 318 Magnum,
was driving to work and truck just shut off.
Computer code 11showed up for crank position
sensor. Changed CPS an I'm still getting no spark.
I'm getting power to the plug at bottom of ignition
coil but nothing from coil,to distributor,or plug
wires. I replaced ignition coil and still getting no
fire. I've read up on Google an see many people
have had some issues with wire corrosion under
fusepanel on driver side under the hood, I've
repaired several wires that had corrosion on driver

Almost forgot that I check power at connecter to bottom of ignition coil with test light and both contacts have constant power when key is on and if I was reading the information correctly isn't it only supposed to have power while engine is being cranked over?

I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota 3.9 4x4. What mine was doing was after it got to full operation temperature, and you would shut it off,it would not start back up until it cooled all the way down,before it would restart. I had the codes read on it,and I had a bad crank sensor. Autozone had one for 80.00. I got one off of EBay Motors for 17.00. Have a great day.
