No spark from 1 ign coil on suzuki baleno 1.6

wow , no year, but did show G16 engines.
Grand, is a clue. but is not.
wiki facts: so what country is your car, we are USA here,
and we have not one Baleno here.
the Suzuki Baleno throughout Asia, Australasia, and Europe. In India where it was manufactured by Maruti Suzuki, the Cultus Crescent was sold as the Maruti Baleno

Ive not seen Every version of every G16 engine suzuki made
world wide, only OURS.

1995 to 2007
my wild guess, is your ECU is OBD1 ecu, (do you know?)
and as such, there are no scan tools so only the CEL blink codes
No spark 5 places, 4 sparks dead and coil HV tower term dead.
here is the checks. for all early G16
  1. fuses good, IG-coil and "FI"????
  2. key on head lights work, good turn them off.
  3. keyon CEL glows, (not blinks) if dead fuse blown, if flashing Immobilizer is UNHAPPY.
  4. CEL glows you crank, its lost spark and all ecu cut fuel no spark.
  5. So you insert the diagnostic jumper wire. in the the DLC connnecter under hood and CEL flashes 41 or 42 DTC or?
  6. bingo? code 12 is happy code.
  7. crank for 5 full seconds to see the cause code.
here is the OBD1 year, way to get flash codes
USA until 1995
and outside USA up to 2001 or more.

no year, makes this very hard,
and no country x10 that. (fueling and spark system vary by COUNTRY !

I own a 2002 Ford F150 SuperCrew- TCS flashes at low idle,It goes off when truck accelerates. Transmission shifts fine in all gears and if I hit the tcs at highway speed it downshifts to third gear with no...

The flashing is the transmission reporting a problem. Only way to figure it out ( that I know of ) is to have the transmission looked at.

The flashing is generated by the PCM, which controls the engine and transmission. Without a CEL, the general engine state is fine ( no P codes, I would suspect the CEL to be illuminated with B-Body Codes also )

If I had to take a complete guess, I would say this is the Torque Converter Clutch solenoid in the transmission by the description of the symptoms ( flash at low idle )

Engine light is on, flashes when driving above 100 Km

stop by local parts store (Autozone,Advance, etc) and have them do a free fault code test. They can print out a list of faults and clear the codes

My car doesnt have an ODBII. How do I get the

You need to find your vehicles diagnostic plug (data link connector). It's usually up under the dash below the steering wheel. These pre 1996 cars (before OBD II) utilize a series of flashes on the CEL to give you the codes. Take a paper clip or wire with insulation stripped off and push one end into TEN hole and the other into the GND on the plug. Make sure both ends are making contact with the metal inside the plug. Turn the ignition to the on position without starting the engine, your CEL will begin to flash in a sequence that you need to record. If the CEL light stays on for a few seconds and then goes off there are no codes.

To turn off the CEL you'll need to disconnect the negative battery cable and depress the brake pedal for at least 20 seconds. To ensure the codes are cleared run the jumper wire between the TEN and GND holes again.

The link shows the diagnostic plug:

These should be the codes for Mazda but I'm not 100% sure of their accuracy so you'll have to confirm.
