Volvo 240 has no spark

Hi there, I have a Volvo 240 1992. The problem i'm having is there is no spark coming out directly from the coil. I have replaced the coil with a new one and the lead that runs from the coil to the distributor cap. There is power going to the coil and coming out. Please can someone help?

    Sounds like the same problem I'm having. I've tried to find the ignition inline fuse which I think is the problem but I can't find it anywhere. The book says its above the left front fender but its not.

Try a new engine rpm speed sensor. It is located at the back-top of engine block where it mates to trans. You will need to remove a single bolt (10mm socket or wrench). You may have to wiggle the sensor to lift it out. Another symtom you may experience, is when you are cranking the car to start, it will buck and act like it is out of time. Another possible component is the ignition power stage/amplifier.

On older types 240 there was some kind of antitheft system connected with the steering lock. Try to route a lead from the battery to the ignition coil and se if it starts.
I drove a 240 with a separate ignition switch all through high school.

You're going to need to have 2 people for this. One of you is going to need to rapidly pull up on the outside door handle(kind of in a snapping fashion) and the other will need to push from the inside. Eventually this door will come open. Once this happens, replace the latch assembly. Any local salvage yard may have these.

No spark at plugs on my 1991 volvo 240


Did you replace the plugs? How hot is the spark from the coil thin and blue? if it is big and orange it is a weak coil and should be replaced. If it is good try an other wire from a different car (do not put a spark plug in it) and see what the spark looks like if good put the plug in it and check the spark again if this is a good the wires are bad
