    I'm sure there's a forum for sidekick owners. You might check in with them. Maybe someone with one lives close to you.

If it isn't pulsing right, maybe it is staying on all that time -and spraying fuel like crazy into your cylinders! Come on, Joel, a weak spark and injectors not pulsing right? Get a different ecm and plug it in. Then you can learn the circuits on your old unit and fix it in your spare time.

    Good luck. I always wanted a suzuki swift; had a friend with a geo tracker (similar to yours?), he thought it was underpowered.

Some how you are getting a massive voltage surge that is frying the coils. Could be a bad ground, the coils get charged up then you lose ground and the coils can’t discharge their load so they burn out. You’re probably gonna need someone really proficient with a scan tool to trace this problem down. At $500 a pop for all new coils I’d definitely give some serious consideration to taking it to the dealer or even good auto electric shop. At the very least you need to find someone with a scan tool to pull the codes and see if there are any trouble codes listed in the computer.

SOURCE: I have a suzuki escudo(sidekick) 1993 and have no spark

If its not the igniter, maybe you forgot to time the engine (timing marks will align at #4 firing poition, not at #1) when you remove the cam shaft.If the engine is not properly timed during assembly, it will not surely fire.

91 Suzuki sidekick, has fuel to the injector, have replaced the injector voltage to injector starts out at 10.74 and drops, have spark but won't start. Relay clicks!

Are you talking about the starter motor solenoid clicking? Have you checked the starter motor operation? If it isn't turning over at all, then first check the battery voltage is sufficient with ignition off. It should be around 12.5 volts, but not much lower.
Also with the headlights on try cranking. If they become very dim, then replace the vehicle battery as it's likely on it's last legs. Just before replacing however, try jump starting the vehicle and test the alternator output. When running, this should be around 14 volts to the battery.

There is a fuse on the battery terminal. It seems that this particular fuse has blown. Please replace this fuse.This fuse is like a master switch. Cuts off all electricity circuits.
