Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

Wont start. no fire from the coil.

I replaced the brush pack in the alternator, had autozone test and charge the batery, and replaced the ignition coil. The truck still wont start. To test for fire, i pulled one plug wire, placed a screwdriver into the wire end, and held the shaft against the block while turning over the ignition. no spark, nothing.

    distributer! ive already replaced the ign coil. i also had to put new brshes in the alternator, which quit on me. im afraid i may have run the truck to long without the alternater working. the truck tuns over fine, but im not getting fire to the plugs.

    after rechecking all my wires i realized that i forgot to connect a grount wire when reinstalling the alternator. it was the ground for my computer, so once i placed it under the alternator mounting bolt where it belonged, the truck started and ran great.

Buick Lesabre 1999 - 3800 my 1 & 4 coil pack not firing why?


i bet it is the ignition module, have it tested at oreillys or autozone, it is what the coils bolt to, common failure, or possibly a crank sensor

I have a 98 vw jetta gl ABA and it wont start run.


I would check for spark on the ignition coil and the spark plug. If no spark, check the power and signal to the ignition coil. The ignition coil large wires are 12volts power and the other three is a signal to electronic firing circuit from ECM. Testing the power is easy, for testing for trigger signal, use a 12v LED test light.

05 Ford Escape, coils #3 & #4 not firing. We've replaced the battery, spark plugs, alternator, coil packs, & pcm. Had pcm reflashed. Garage said it had to be coil packs, but just replaced coil packs 3


Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

Autozone says it's #4 not firing and to put some gas treatment in. and new plugs and wires. still misfiring.


Check ignition coil pack for spark, at ignition coil with engine running disconnect one spark plug wire at a time, they should all spark, if no spark out of any of the coil pack, replace coil pack.

Wont start no fire from coil pack


Change the coil pack. Or have your ignition module tested. If all is good then maybe distributor.

Car goes dead


Looks like you are having a battery problem, your battery is weak and not able to hold the cars charge. When u let the car sit the battery will lightly charge itself but once you turn it on and drive it begins to drive, the cars accesories will drain out the battery and the alternator will do its job by charging but the battery is just too weak or it could be the alternator not putting out enough amperage to charge the battery sufficiently, the alternator could be seizing on you when u are driving, stopping and rotating off and on, if thats the case then your car will shut off. I would do a load test on your battery then if that checks out ok then go for the alternator. The load testing tool can be purchased at any AutoZone or Lappens, Pep Boys etc..

Good luck..
