Have you checked the coil from where the spark comes from and the computer sensor fuse block?

    The Computer Sensor Fuse Block, is the fuse connection between the ignition and the computer sensor. If this does not help try the wiring that runs from the computer sensor to the fuse box. then follow it to the ignition where the key switching happens?

1998 mazda 2500 cranks but wontr start, has fuel to fuel rail has compression has spark to the 2 cyls that were checked

If you have at least 40# of pressure to the rail, spark, compression, and the engine is in time...that only leaves one thing. Fuel injectors. I believe that the signal to fire the injectors comes form the crank sensor to the ECU

2006 Mazda 6 3.0L. Got a misfire Cyl. #6. Replaced spark plug & coil. Still misfire. Swapped coil and same result. #6 misfire??????????????

misfires are more often from a blocked/faulty injector rather than electronic
pull the injector and clean or replace
check for injector operation and wires

Test fuel pressure at key on. Next test for spark to plugs. Use "noid" light to test for injector pulse.

Have you checked for a strong blue spark at all cylinders? Have you checked the injector circuit? Are the injectors pulsing and putting fuel into the cylinders? Have you checked compression?

All I can think of. No theft security issues, car is not immobilized by that, is it? If all else checks out, maybe the engine computer?

Car starts and runs for about 13 to 20 minutes got new computer map mas still no go. wait for engine to cool off and will start. fan does not engage but sensors test ok. during diagnostics fan will run i ...

Just did one in my shop yesterday. MY problem was injectors shorting out drivers in PCM after half hour of cooling down it would restart and die again about 20mins later. You need to narrow down what is dropping out. Most likely your loosing injector pulse and/or spark. You can buy a noid light for injector testing and a inline spark tester which you can tag on igition coil pack from local parts store also you can tag into injector harness on passenger side of engine with noid light, when it stalls see if light is blinking while cranking on both testers. IF you have spark but no injector pulse you have one or more injectors shorting (acceptable range is 13 ohms) any lower than 13 ohms injectors are toast. IF no spark and no pulse your ignition module and or crank sensor are bad, replace both, module is under coil pack and sensor on side of block.

1990 gmc 6500 topkick with no spark or injector pulse. all 4 wires on the ignition coil have battery voltage with key on. is coil shorted or is the ignition module bad?

You are jumping to conclusions. Slow down.
No spark AND no injector pulse indicates none of the desired outputs were triggered. The ignition module makes spark when it receives a crankshaft position sensor signal, and then transfers control of that spark to the computer after it starts. The module takes its crank sensor signal and generates an RPM count that it forwards to the PCM(main computer) which is used for triggering the injectors and controlling timing. SO, if you had a bad crank sensor OR a bad ignition module, you could lose both spark AND fuel. a coil would not disable injector pulse. modules RARELY fail in a manner that disables RPM reference to the computer causing it to not fire the injectors...At this point, I would TEST the crank sensor as the next step. If its easier, 1 of the wires on the module goes directly there so you can test the crank sensor at the module.

Car has no spark or injector pulse(new ecm,crank sensor)

Check the fuse for the injectors, some vehicles have the injectors and coil running on the same circut, at the same time check the fuse for the ignition.

NO start

Make sure you are getting gas and spark, they are a few ground wires that come off of injector harness that if they are not grounded will cause injector NOT to pulse re-check wiring and get back to me. Good Luck
