SOURCE: 98 dode ram wont crank no spark

May have no spark due to a bad crank sensor, which is responsible for spark when it gets a pulse through the cars' computer.

SOURCE: pass key stays on1995 buick roadmaster car want crank

Short circuit probably not the problem. The pass key system is not being disabled making the car inoperable, thats why it will not crank. Either you are using a key that does not have the correct resistance(black chip in key) or if it is the same key you always used then the pass key sensor went bad. I believe it is in the steering column and a qualified mechanic could help you there.

My 92 Buick skylark won't start and I tried the obd 1 and it won't tell me anything


Did you check for spark at a spark plug ? If there is spark , spray carburetor cleaner in the intake an see if it try's to start , if it try's to start you probably need a fuel pump ! If no spark you have a bad crankshaft position sensor or ignition control module is bad.

I have a 93 Buick Skylark GS 3300 Engine Series and my car is cranking but not firing. Diagnostic scan turned up a DTC42 code-spark timing error. The spark plugs are not firing. Replaced crankshaft sensor...


think a timing belt slippage or camshaft position sensor,
deffiantly something there to take a deeper look at.
double check the cams and their alighnment marks that they alighn with TDC if out of sync. nothing will fire right,the coil pack has no ides where anything is for some reason,good luck with this one,Gary

1993 buick skylark wont start. its not getting spark. changed coil packs, still no fire. battery is fully charged, fuel pump comes on. why would stop it from turning over fully?


is the check engine light on?if you have no spark, start with the wires, and work your way back. you say that you replaced the coil packs..... it could be a crank position sensor. please get back to me if the check engine light is on. also, let me know what happened from the start. were you driving? has the car sat for a while?

Ok i recently changed spark plugs on my 1994 buick skylark. when i was done changing plugs i started car up and smelled strong exhaust smell. so i checked the plugs wires and found out that when i pulled...


Did you mean coil the 1994 3.1 did not use a distributor , sounds like a bad coil pack and cylinders #3 and #6 do use the same coil. I would also check 3 and 6 plug wires this system is a waste spark design meaning when # 3 coil fires it is supposed to go through #3 plug wire , through #3 plug ( ground) through the engine block through the #6 plug then through the #6 wire then back to the coil, Then when #6 fires it works the opposite way, so in theory you could have one bad wire affecting 2 cylinders .....

I have 1991 buick skylark, have no spark to plugs change crank sensor and module,,,,,,help still no start.


Do you have an anti-theft system on this car. That is about the only other thing I could think of besides bad relay or fuse. Since crank sensor and module are good.
