Has anyone checked the fuse? Get a wiring diagram, and trace the wire from the coil to the fuse to see which one it is.I had this problem and it was the fuse.

The module testers are not 100%, I would buy one, you have covered the other bases.

I have a 1985 Crown Victoria Ford LTD have fire to distributor have fire to the coil but no spark to the spark plugs what is


If there is no spark coming from the coil, it could be the module on the side of the dist or the pickup coil inside the dist, or the coil.
The pickup tells the module when to ground the coil which makes the spark.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to get the testing procedures for each component.

Ignition spark


You need to replace the TFI module (on outside of distributor) and the distributor pickup coil inside the distributor.

Will turn over without fire, replaced brain and the ignition coil


bet on the module,if it's tfi it's on the side of the dist.85 could be either way,may be the older fender mounted module.
If it's dist. mounted Ford recomends replacing the pick up coil also. There is a wire with a plug on the tfi's ,you remove the "cap" to set the timing,just 2 wires with a gray cap on the end.Maybe that's the wire you mentioned.

Got a 85 toyota pickup..will not start..replaced coil, brain box, and all fuses...still no fire from the coil?


Not sue what you mean by brain box. You may need to replace the ICM the Ignition Control Module that sits right below the coil. Mine cost almost $300 locally, but found them online for less then $100. When mine went out in my 1985 Toyota pickup I was doing about 45 MPH and it was just like someone turn the key off., dead, no spark nothing. I ran the troublesooting steps in my repair manual and found it was dead.

I have a 1990 ford f150 and i cant get it to star it looks like there is no spark i change the ignition coil the ignition module and pick up coil and still not star


Do you know if your starter is bad? If you have not had this check perform these simple steps to check your starter. Place flathead screwdriver on top of your selonoid switch and another screwdriver to the positive battery terminal. If your starter is bad then vehicle should start this way. If you get fire this way replace your starter.

89 f150 to fireing


Check and see if u have spark to the plugs, if you don't replace the TFI ignition module on the distributor and the pickup inside the distributor, the dist must be removed to do this coil pickup replacement.
Comment posted on Mar 04, 2009 also check the fuel pressure if the spark is ok, the ignition is the ,most common issue. Comment posted on Mar 04, 2009 also check the fuel pressure if the spark is ok, the ignition is the ,most common issue.
