Question about Ford Fairmont

1 Answer

No spark EB '93 Ford Fairmont. The motor was idling and it stopped. I've replaced the coil, checked the fuses, replaced the relay and checked for spark. I was going to try direct power with a fuse in the line to the coil, but I don't really want that to happen. I'm still getting no power going through the coil. It has been suggested to replace the distributor. To me that seems rediculous because you've got to have power going through the coil first don't you? What else could it be? Maybe it could be something to do with power getting to the coil. I thought the relay may have fixed that problem. Help me! Wills Confused

Your distributor sends trigger signal for coil, based on cam and crank position sensors test distributor output and sensors you can get info on troubleshooting from repair manual (purchase from parts store) under troubleshooting section in manual. You will need multi tester with continuity setting and dc volt setting.

Ive got a 93 mazda mx-6. the motor came out of a 97 ford probe 2.0. with that being said.. 2 days ago, i drove it down a bumpy road (slow) at a coast. it dies and won't start. ive looked everywher


According to the wiring diagram, there is no inertia switch on a Mazda MX-6. The fuel pump circuit only has a pump relay which is powered by a fuse and grounded by the computer.
And if the car did have an inertia switch it would not affect the ignition system.
If you have no spark and no fuel pressure I would check the circuits for the pump, coil, and computer at those fuse locations and beyond. Could have shaken something loose at the key switch or in the wiring.

Igot a 93 ford F-150 Ecoline van that wont start tried jumping fuel spark plugs can you help


If the motor is not cranking at all, try jumping it after disconnecting the positive battery cable from the battery. If it cranks the problem is a bad battery. If it is cranking check the ignition relay and fuses in the fuse panel and power distribution box under the hood. If all fuses are good, and I believe that vehicle has a coil pack instead of Distributor so you'll have to do this the hard way, check to see if the valves are working in sequence when the motor cranks over. You will have to pull a valve cover to watch the valve operation while you crank the motor. if it does by chance have a Distributor, you can pull the distributor cap and watch to see if that is spinning as the motor cranks to make sure the timing chain or belt has not broken.

No spark but car cranks over


Have you checked for fuel pressure ? With only 1 coil pak out, the car should start. So, start from the beginning, ... Check for spark on several plug wires. If spark, then check for fuel, is the fuel pump working? Check the breaker in the trunk, drivers side behind the panel. If still no fuel, then could be a wire short or fuse,or just the pump in the tank needs to be replaced. If you do have spark and fuel, then check the MAF sensor on the air intake. This will shut the motor down more so then the MAP. Only Ford has this part and it cost's, and once you open the box they will not take it back. Have someone, or even Ford check the MAF sensor, or check at a scrap yard for hopefully a good used one. There's more to check, including the crank sensor, but start with this. Good luck.

93 Honda Accord - Started running rough, backfired, and now won't start. Replaced ignitor and coil and checked all fuses but still no spark from the coil when I turn it over. The rotor is spinning so it's...


Crankshaft postion sensor probably...

Although Im not sure if the 93 had one...

Could also be a bad relay switch... should be located in a fuse box under the hood somewhere, its a littl box looking that that clicks when you engage the starter, it kills the power to everything except the started and coil.. if its bad you wouldn't get any spark...

No Spark


If it's an 83 Fairmont. Take a bottle of water with you and the next time it cuts off, turn off the ignition, open the hood and pour the water slowly over the electronic ignition module mounted on the inside of the fender.[it looks like a small alluminum box]
Caution-do not pour it on the connector where the wires come out, only on the other end.
Then try to start the car, if it starts the module is probably going bad, because they overheat and cut off when they do.

No Spark


There can be a couple of causes for no spark.
Common problem - Ignition unit in distributor has failed - Replace distributor.
Common problem - Coil failure - Replace coil.
Common Problem - Stuck ECU relay - indicated by no pulsing of injectors and no spark - replace relay.

Hi, i have a eb falcon sedan, just put new fuel pump in. there is no power coming to the pump. where would i start looking to solve the problem.


Common problem is the Fuel Pump Relay behind the battery and under the coolant tank. They fail all the time. There is also a fusable link. Dont get confused though as the ECU relay (same type) also fails which you can tell by having no spark too.
