1993 volvo 850 glt

I have a 1993 volvo 850 series glt. Won't start has new plugs wires rotor cap coil and crank sensor. If I turn key to start I don't get fire while i'm cranking. Was thinking the camshaft position sensor might be causing this problem. Does this make sense or could you give me any info. what could cause this.

Hello,
Have you made sure the rotor is turning in the distributor, as this sound like a cambelt failure.
Sorry to bear bad tidings if this is so.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

How to remove a coil from a 93 850 glt volvo?


The ignition coil is on the drivers side fender well just aft of the air box. You'll see the wire coming from it to the distributor cap. It's held in place by 2 10MM bolts.

1993 Volvo GLT 850 Electrical things won't work


I'd be taking the dash apart looking for burnt wires in a harness, so you will likely have to take the outer cover off some of the bundles. Start tracing back from the plug in for the radio. Hope this helps.
