If the sparck fire has no fire, then check the coil module plug and clean with dust remover, then plug again and check if ther any fire from the coil conectors.

The point is if no fire never will come up, you will need to check this point to have fire.

I changed the icm and coil pack on my 2004 Malibu classic and the theft light turns off and try to start it and does a little pop noise and just turns over and want start up. Please help.

might have a crankshaft sensor or camshaft position sensor issue can plug it in with scan tool (can get one at advance auto for 50-80 bucks ) and if one of those is an issue it should show up in the computers memory

Why is the car not starting?

You don't tell us what car you are working on, but generally get parts store to test ignition module, use ohm meter to check cam/crank sensors and coils.

I have a 1995 Olds Aurora. It started and ran fine until I replaced the coil packs. Once I replaced the coil packs It immediately would not spark. I put the old ones back on and still no spark. I then...

Why did you change the coils ??????? Do you know how to test electrical circuits with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Check for B+ voltage at the ignition module ,connector 2 pin C this is a pink wire . Check for a good ground at connector 2 pin A ,black with white stripe . Plus watch as many videos from this guy as you can on GM igntion systems .Your vehicle has two crankshaft position sensors .

If by 'no fire' you mean no spark, check all of your fuses, and have the ignition module (located under the coil packs) checked. Autozone can usually check the ignition module for free. If it has spark, it could also be the fuel pump going out.

How to fix a coail pack on a 1987 Pontiac 6000?

Coil packs are replaced not repaired if found to be defective. ---prev.gif next.gif DISTRIBUTORLESS IGNITION SYSTEMS Starting in 1987, some models came with engines equipped with a Computer Controlled Coil Ignition (C3I) or Distributorless Ignition System (DIS). Fig. 1: Triggering system used on the C3I fast start system 86812034.gif
Fig. 2: Electrical schematic on C3I ignition system 86812031.gif Both DIS and C3I system consists of the coil pack, ignition module, crankshaft sensor, interrupter rings and ignition control module (ICM). All components are serviced as complete assemblies, although individual coils are available for Type 2 coil packs. Since the ICM controls the ignition timing, no timing adjustments are necessary or possible.

I was driving and truck just shut off will not start i have replaced the dist.and the enig.switch fuel filter and checked the coil i have no spark or fire i am going crazy trying to fix this problem so any...

While you was replacing the distributor did you look at the pick-up coil and module inside the distributor?? If not then either one of those two things will keep an engine from starting. The crankshaft position sensor mounted on the bellhousing will also cause the problem. To check the pick-up coil in the distributor with an ohm meter;remove the dist.cap and hook up one side of ohm meter to a good ground, and the other lead to the pick-up coil terminals Flex the leads by hand to check for intermittrnt openings. The ohm metershould indicate infinitr resistance. If it does not the the pick-up coil is bad and needs to be replaced. Connect both leads from the ohm meter to both terminals of the pick-up coil and flex the leads> the ohm meater should hold a steady value between 500-1500 ohms. If not then replace it. If it does replace the module under the coil in the dist. base. Hope this will help you.

The car will crank but does not have fire going to the coil pack

did you do a spark test?
This could be a number of things, your crankshaft sensor, coils or ignition module.
check the coils
  1. Remove the ignition coil(s).
  2. Using an ohmmeter, check the resistance between the primary terminals on the underside of the coil. The resistance should be 0.50-0.90 ohms.
  3. Check the resistance between the secondary terminals. It should be 5,000-10,000 ohms.
  4. If the coil failed either test, replace the coil.
