1989 CHEVY G20 VAN WONT START

I AM NOT GETTING SPARK FROM THE COIL TO THE DISTRIBUTER CAP . I CHANGED THE COIL, THE MAIN COMPUTER. THE PICK UP COIL IN THE DISTRIBUTER, THE CAP AND ROTTER ,

I ALSO DISMANTELED AND REMANTALED, THE IGNITION SWITCH ON THE STEERING CALUM, THEIR WAS A SIGN OF SPARK(BLACK SUTE) FROM THE LIGHT PURPLE WIRE.

I AM ABOUT TO DISMANTAL THE WHOLE DASH AND CUT OPEN THE WIRING HARNESS TO INSPECT THE HARNESS. I AM TRING TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM WITHOUT HAVING TO CUT THE HARNESS.

Well.... I do not see the ignition module listed, which is mounted inside the distributor mentioned yet. Have you replaced it and just not listed it? The crank sensor could be too.....I just can't imagine having to cut a wiring harness. Never had to before... keep trying other things.

1989 chevy 1500 v8 wont start out of the blue changed icm,coil getting fuel no spark draws current at the coil when key is turned


That old of a vehicle you might want to take the cap off and check to see if the shaft is turning. You will be able to see the rotor turning. Also look inside the cap and see if the rotor and cap are good inside.

You said you changed the ignition coil module, not sure if you mean you changed the coil too, if not change that.

hope this helped

If it is getting spark and fuel check the timing. The timing chain may have jumped.Take out #1 spark plug and tap engine till the compression stroke comes up. To check just hold your finger over the plug hole and the compression will blow it out. Then rock crank by hand and set to top dead center. Take distributer cap off and see if rotor faces #1 cylinder. If you have spark to the plugs and the plugs are good and you have fuel timing or compression is all that is left.

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

Normally on chevy ignition modules when they go bad, they will quit when they get hot & after cooling down will work again, so when you have them tested they have cooled down. I would try changing it & see if it wont fix it.

Chevy van won't start


Check for spark and fuel. If you have spark make sure your fuel pump is working. If pump is working and no spark, check for spark off coil wire. If nothing there either, remove ignition module and take it to Napa and have them check it. Have them test it several times.
