I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

    on-board data.



    Scantool is required to read. any murrays or autozone (autoparts store) will hook it up and read the codes for you for free (in order for you to buy needed parts from them)

    i am familliar with a '92. If it is in the same location, you have to remove the P/S front tire to access it.

    It will look like this....






    This pic may help... it is a 94 turbo - should be same location however...

Why wont my 2002 olds alero start when its cold out


One of the coil packs or the ignition module is probably bad. Test for spark when cold. If no spark on any coils suspect the ignition module or crank position sensor. If spark is gone on only one coil check the plugs and wires to that coil pack. If theplugs and wires are ok then replace thge coil pack. Don't forget the obvious load test the battery and clean the battery connections. If the check engine light is on run any diagnostic codes and repair

1989 ford escort turns over but wont start


if all you did was this...and and put a new battery in and still wont start...if you have went thru your plugs..wires..distributor..ignition coil...made sure your getting spark..if not..check your relays and fuses..preferebly one that deals with spark and timing for injectors..if everything is fine to that point...then try a crankshaft position sensor...it tells the pcm timing for fuel injectors and fire to the ignition coil...hopefully this helps.

Wat does code po320 means f150 2002


Here is the general definition.

P0320 FORD Description Ignition failure sensor is used to check whether the spark ignition is occurred correctly or not and also used to tachometer drive. The sensor monitors the voltage difference between a resistance which is on the battery circuit for ignition coil. When the ignition coil works properly, the electric current through the resistance is detected as voltage drop. This is confirmed for every ignition event with the crankshaft sensor and the camshaft sensor. If Engine Control Module (ECM) detects a malfunction, no ignition is possible, so the engine would not start. If there is no ignition signal for a predetermined cycle for one or two ignition coils, an ignition coil circuit failure exists.
Possible causes - Faulty Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor
- Faulty Crankshaft Position sensor
- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor harness is open or shorted
- Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Low battery charge
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

Did you check 20A ECM BATT fuse 9 in the instrument panel fuse block? It feeds power to the new pump and the powertrain control module (PCM).

I have a 2004 cavalier it has gas and oil but wont start


check see if power going to ignition coil primary terminal, if not check ignition coil fuse.if power going to ignition coil primary terminal, your coils could be bad or you have ignition module fault or crankshaft position sensor and pcm fault,have vechicle code scanned many things will cause no spark conditions, make sure battery fully charged or in good shape you need good 12.6 volts from battery, for pcm and ignition to work properly.

No power to coil i have replaced the distripertor cap,rotter,crankshaft positioning sensor,battery,and the coil .i also checked all fuses in both fuse pannels. the jeep ran fine before vacation, older son...


well those jeeps are funny little critters when it comes to the battery terminals believe it or not if the battery terminals get to corroded it will crank most of the time and usually start but wont idle i would clean terminals real good and and charge it up real good and try it but like i said they usually at least start in ur case i would check the grounds and also u say it is a 1998 jeep cherokee is it a grand cherokee with a 4.0 straight 6 cause they usually have a coil pack for each cylynder mounted under a ignition module bolted on the head

also ignition module may b at fault but my money is on the batt or a bad ground if all hat happened is the battery got ran down

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.

98 tiburon fx. battery blew up driving down the freeway. replaced battery, car wouldn't start. replaced crankshaft and cam sensors, along with coil pack. noticed a blown fuse for rear defogger and...


The reason why the battery blew up is because of a deffective alternator. The charging regulator on the alternator has malfuntioned, and caused the battery to be overcharged. The reason why your car wont start is because overvoltage has damaged some of the electronic sisytem in the car associated with the ignition system.
