Check to see if you have an ignition control module. also check any fuses for ignition related items both in power distribution center and fuse block under dash. Don't forget to have codes read if possible It's a big help.

Changed spark plugs, changed ignition coil. still not getting any spark and car wont start


Please change the rotor and cap before you go any further. The rotor tip can be worn which can prevent charge from getting to the plug wire. The contacts inside the cap could also be corroded.

I have a 93 jeep grand cherokee larado have replaced alternator, starter, battery, coil, still has no spark got power to everything coil has power at it but nothing comes out of it repaced cap and rotor...


The only thing left to replace would be the electronic trigger module which is mounted inside the distributor. If this module is bad it won't switch the coil on and off to produce spark.

The power is on and off so starting is hard


Need to try the crank shaft position senor. It work off the turning of the crank. It the sensor goes bad then the engine has no idea what position the crank is in, so therefore you won't get it to start. I had to replace a few of these on Jeeps , this is a big problem for Jeeps.

Here are a couple of things that could be causing your problem. 1. Bad ignition coil or ignition module 2. Clogged fuel filter 3. Clogged air filter 4. Clogged fuel injectors 5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor. 6. Broken timing chain/belt. Here are a few things you can try to verify that you have a good spark. 1. Remove the distributor cap and crank the car. If the rotor turned you're ok. If it doesn't turn then that's you're problem and you will probably need to change a timing belt/chain. 2. Check the spark from the ignition coil by pulling the coil wire from the center of the distributor. Use an alligator clip to attach a short wire to the coil wire contact. Bare the other end of this short wire and set it up so it's sitting very close to the engine block. Turn off the lights and try to start the car. You should see a spark jump from this wire to the block. If you don't see a spark it's likely your ignition module or ignition coil is bad. 3. If you have a spark maybe it's not getting to the plugs. You may need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. You can test if the plugs are sparking by pulling one, re-attaching the spark plug wire and seeing if you get a spark when you try to start the engine in the dark. Please note, the metal threads of the spark plug need to be shorted to the engine block to complete the circuit during this test.
