Question about 1992 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Cheverlet K1500 no spark

While stopped at a stop light my truck instantly died (it was raining hard). While troubleshooting I discovered that my truck was getting no spark. There were no cracks in my distributor cap and all wires were good along with no blown fuses, so I replaced the ignition coil. This did not solve the problem.... I am wondering is there anything else that it could be and does it mean that my distributor has gone out?

    You didn't mention the ignition module or the stator, did you check them?

Two more things related to spark one is the ignition module, two the distributor pickup assmbly, and last but not theh least check and make sure the distributor rotor is not burned up

check the pick up coi for continuity, using an omh meter you can use theh omh meter to test the distributor rotor also if they test out ok then replace the ignition module.

Change the pick-up coil. You have to remove the distributor to do it.
Cheapest way is to buy a reman distributor and just replace it. Just remember which way the rotor is facing before you remove it.

There is a chassis short somewhere most likely not on the engine. Things that are always powered looking for a ground once the ignition is on are:

1. back up lights
2. Cigarette Lighter
3. Brake lights
4. Dome lights
5. Horn

Any of those can cause the problem

A slow but effective way to troubleshoot is to pull a different fuse each evening

Brake Lite
Head light
Tail Light
Dome / instrument Light

One day your going to find that the battery is still fully charged.

How ever a faster way is to disconnect the negative post battery terminal and touch it to the battery post after pulling each fuse.... one of those times the spark is going to be MUCH less.... That is the circuit you need to find out where the chassis short is in.
Most often I find chassis shorts are on the frame going to the rear of the vehicle caused by a chaffing wire.

Thanks for using FixYa!

EPC Light on , VW dies when stopping

Tell him to clean the electrical connector at the throttle body with 90% rubbing alcohol. He may want to use a nylon brush on the contact pins while cleaning. I'm pretty sure the car needs a throttle adaptation performed also. Find a shop with a Vag Com scanner, they can do it for you.
