It could be the crank sensor, if it cannot see it it will diable the coils and fuel, try turning over the engine taking out the plugs if they are wet then it is your crank sensor.
i have picture of location if you need it
hope this helps

well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

A new clutch was just installed, and was put all back together and now it wont start, has no spark, its got all new plugs, wires, and coil, everthings pluggged in and good fuses....im completely lost


Difficult to answer with limited info...what car etc. First suggestion though is to check the earth wire to the gearrbox, bolts on to the back of the top front bell housing bolt. If this is left off, check for other burnt ignition wiring.
Good luck.

My 1998 honda civic ex wont start, I have tried changing the fuel filter, distributor cap and rotor, and air filter. It cranks but wont fire up... a couple days ago the car stopped running while my dad...


Make sure your distruibutor rotor in turning while cranking engine, if it is timing belt ok, more then likely your not getting spark to spark plugs check your ignition coil, but more then likely it's going to be your ignition module.

900 SE 1995 2.5 V-6 with no spark.


Start with some more basic checks? plugs, ignition wires, ignition sensors (spray em with contact cleaner) also a little more information on Exactly whats happening would be nice, for all we know its your battery, (i.e sounds, sound are important) heck shoot up the starter with a can of starter fluid....or take it to a dealership, ( I do'nt personaly work on Saabs ) they sometimes will tell you a few basic things to try and will get right to it

Saab 95 1998 - wont start


The most common problem is the Direct ignition cassette, followed by the crankshaft position sensor. I am assuming that it cranks, but won't start.

It wont start.


If the linstrument or parking lights don't dim slightly as you turn the key in the ignition switch there is a high probability that the problem is with the ignition switch electrical contacts or the related wiriing, not the key. If the problem was the key it would not rotate, just as a padlock or door lock would not rotate. Also check the ignition coil to make certain the wiring is iintact and that the coil is producing a spark to the spark plugs. Be careful not to get shocked by the high voltage output of the coil.

Saab 900i 1992 model won't Start


sounds like a fuel problem check for spark and try to get the car running on ehter (aerosol starting fluid) spray it into the air intake (makesure not to spray the filter just take it out) and have a helping hand turn the key if the car runs, then its a fuel problem prbly the fuel pump, NOTE: When running only on ether the car will sound very funny this is normal, IF the car wont start problems are elsewhere such as a timing belt slipping, no spark, no compression, Bad coil, weak starter, bad valve ect etc HOPETHIS HELPS feel free to e-mail me at fixya@whypayforhelp.org
