    how to test ignition module? what signals the pcm to open and close the circuit for the coils? I have the 2 coil packs and not individual one if that helps any. I have a book for mustang 4.6L but do not know if checking codes are the same

    What trouble codes do you have? has the ignition module been tested? Coils are turned on and off by the ground from the PCM.

Cant get 8n to run. starts but misses. new plugs, crb,distributor, coil, tank shut-off, ign switch, ceramic resister, ballast resister, fresh gas, but has power to ign switch whether on or off.

If it starts but misses meaning it runs but not on all cylinders?.....then,
Are the spark plug wires in the correct firing order?
Are the spark plug wires in good shape?
Is there compression on all cylinders?
If a valve is bad it won't fire smoothly.
If you pull the plugs are any black with carbon?
(a black carbon coated plug will not fire,especially with a 6 volt system)
Is the distributor car attached fully and correctly?
When the distributor cap is off,is there any side play in the distributor shaft?
Is the point gap correct on the points?
Start the tractor cold and feel the spark plugs,the one or two that are colder than the others are the missing cylinders,if two are cold you could try switching those spark plug wires with each other,in case they are mixed up,and if two are missing are side by side you could have a head gasket leak between cylinder problem.
TIP 1, the BEST THING to do on a Ford 8N is to convert it to 12 volts neg ground.Add a alternator,(76 chev pickup alt fits good) leave the starter as it is (it does care if it's positive or neg ground or 12v) and add a 72 dodge ignition resistor in line to a 12 volt coil.(unless your new 12v coil does not need a resistor)
This set up will increase your fuel economy,add power and start instantly in any temp.
TIP 2,you can use unleaded fuel in a Ford 8n as it already has hardened valve seats.
BUT 10% Ethanol fuel is BAD,it can be used, but shut off the fuel at the tank and let the tractor carb run dry before shutting it off if you are not going to use the tractor with in a few days.

Series one yaris no spark ?

Guessing you have actually removed each plug attached to coil and grounded to see if the coils are firing. The fact that you have voltage in does not mean voltage out of coils...they do fail.
If they fail try known working coil to test. Checked correct timing? Check cam sensor if equipped? Check knock sensor? Engine ground cable intact?

1998 Ford Explorer, 4.0 SOHC No Spark. Engine will crank but it won't start. Replaced the Crankshaft Sensor, Coil Pack, & Spark Plugs. Still no spark. What next?

You are at thhe right trail what controls spark is coil pack crank sensor sparkplugs and plug wire but the most important is power . I mean 12 volt connections and ground This includes checking fuses you need a simple volt meter doesnt have to expensive or fancy just to pick up 12 volts let start with fuses in the engine juction box (there not mark to what it belongs to) make sure none are open. especially fuse 19 and 24 , next go to the crank sensor make sure the tabs are snuggly on now to the coil pack there is a red and light green wire this comes from ignition and feeds 12 volts at the coil pack measure that voltage is it 12 volts if not correct it this is from ignition switch ( you can make a tool that feed 12 volt with a wire and a fuse in series and attatch it to battery and the primary wire this is known as hot wire) next go to the ECM wiggle the wires see if that get a connection going if not go back to the ICM here are the wire you are to measure the tan light green, this is from ECM and it is pulsed it measure 5vlts to 0 volts switched then measure the tan orange the same thing 5 volts to zero,then tan white again 5vlts to zero. any one of these 5 to zero fails you fix is the ecm

Car was running for couple of minuites then quit. now engine cranks but will not fire

Too many choices. Try spraying starting fluid into air intake in order to determine if it is lack of fuel.
If that does not fire at all, then attach a spare spark plug to one of the spark plug wires, with the spark plug thread grounded. Then watch for spark when cranked.
If not, then consider if ignition switch is getting current to ignition module, by using a 12 volt test light. Take ignition module/coil to place like Autozone for testing. Last I can think of is distributer module. Can also be tested if you take it in, but watch carefully when you take it out, so that you can put it back in with the same rotation. Use tape to make a mark.

No spark to the coil

No spark to the coil or is it no spark from the coil? First verify that you have 12 volts to the coil when you turn ignition switch on if not you will never have spark from the coil going to the plugs. If you do have 12 volts to the coil and still no spark you have a bad coil. To see if the coil is firing, unplug a spark plug wire from it's plug and hold it to a chasis ground while attempting to start the vehicle. There should be a strong spark and popping sound. Remember to wear leather glove or thick work glove if holding the wire by hand to avoid shock. If there is a strong spark then coil is good.

I just changed my spark plugs , wires , and coil on my 2000 ford explorer and it will turn over but it wont crank. what do i need to do?

Have you checked to see if you have spark to the plugs? I have found that on some Explorers , the primary voltage to the coil was not there. I know it sounds complicated, but it's not. You have a 4 wire connector at the coil pack. One of the wires has battery voltage going to it. When this wire is checked with a voltmeter when the key is on ,it will show 12 volts. When this wire is checked while cranking the voltage may drop to 9 volts or less. This is "NO GOOD'. If you find this, rewire a jumper from Batt to this wire. Should result in a start and run. Good luck Moe
