I would ask you to have your computer scanned for codes, this would tell you what is wrong, but possibly this may not be possible for you to do. Your description leads me to believe that your problem is a bad crankshaft sensor. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
Looks like that there's no current flowing that's why it won't fire up. I strongly suggest that you check and replace the coil pack if necessary. If the coil pack is faulty there will be no current to the plugs. One good reason why it won't fire up.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
could be a number of possible faults.1/crank sensor not working when hot,trace this and pour cold water on it(dont do this if it is not by crank pulley as water isnt good for modules etc) and retry.2/sparkplugs worn,but usually they would fault more on cold start.3/fuel pump cuts out when run,try wacking tank from underneath and retry.though I would concentrate on nil spark caused by a faulty ignition module or crank sensor. Next time it fails to start.pull off a sparkplug lead,make a quick test plug with an old(but working)sparkplug.pull the side wire away from the center electrode 5mm and insert into plug lead.earth ground the plug on its thread against metal on the engine.crank and check for spark visually,don't be tempted to hold the plug while cranking.if nil spark we will have to test further which is faulty sensor.if it sparks ok we will need to test for fuel. testing for fuel is easy. when it fails,unclip air filter housing,while engine is being cranked,spray an aerosol based carburettor cleaner into air duct to engine,it should start and run while spraying and stop when you stop spraying if fuel delivery is the fault.fuel pump will then need testing/replacing. be careful not to spray onto ignition or any areas of spark
What you do is take either and old sparkplug from the car or pull one from the car and connect one of the sparkplug wires to it. Then with an insulated set of pliers hold the sparkplug so the electrode is grounded. Then have someone crank the car over. This is best done at night so you can see if there is a spark. During the day however you should be able to here a spark. If not probably a bad coil.
check to see if you are getting a spark from the plugs. Just pull the plug and connect it back to plug wire. Then with gloves ground of that plug at the threds. Have someone try to start it only allowing 3-4 repatisions, and see if you have a spark. If you dont have a spark, then it would be eaither be the sparkplugs, plug wiers, or your coil is bad.
