Question about Geo Prizm
I'm not sure what that fuse means but it would be a good idea to change it. If changing the fuse doesn't fix your issue, your problem may be in the distributor cap or ignition coil. I would check these parts first before trying anything to in depth. The way to check the coil is to take the lead coil wire that leads from the coil to the center of the distributor cap. Take this wire off at the end of the distributor cap and put a spark plug inside of it and lay it on something like the intake of the car. IT MUST BE METAL AND GROUNDED!!! Then turn the key on and crank the engine while having someone watch for a spark. If you don't get a spark next use either a test light or a voltmeter and check to make sure you have 12 volts to your coil. If you do have voltage to the coil and no spark, then it should be your coil. If not then you need to move further into the workings of the electrical system.
Any questions, just ask!!
