Depending on the make model and year, you may have a distributor or a cam and crank sensor that helps fire the coil. Something has to provide a ground signal to the coil to fire it.
You may need a book to help trace the wiring and test the other components.

SOURCE: i cant get spark out of the coil pack

cam sensor fires the injectors to synchronise injector pulsing with the spark at the spark plugs.. U need to probably change the crankshaft sensor (around the crank pulley) as the crank sensor is what controls the ignition spark.
hope that does it.

SOURCE: no spark from the coil packs

Check the wiring and make sure your getting 12V to the module (under the coil packs) when the ignition key is turned on. If you have 12V then ohmmeter the coils. The primary side is like .5-1.5 ohms and the secondaries are in the 7500 ohm neighborhood. If all this checks out OK the module would be the culprit.

SOURCE: not getting spark

Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest

SOURCE: No spark from coil pack

The most common reasons for them going out are not using dielectric grease properly when installing, and from washing your engine.

I believe this was a huge issue with Volkswagen vehicles

Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???


Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit it.it will not turn over.Thank you sherry


No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

Motor is skipping, lacks power,ck eng. light is


A flashing light means you're actively misfiring. Have the ECU scanned to find out which cylinder it is. Bad coil packs are common and there is a recall for them. Call a dealer with your VIN number and if yours qualifies, you'll get four new ones free. If not, buy a coil pack for each cylinder that is indicated as misfiring and replace them. They're $35 at AutoZone and about $160 at an Audi dealer.

Car shut off and wont fully start


sounds like you have some bad coil packs, something is not allowing spark, what kind of ignition sys do you have?
Distributer or coils?
either way you have to have spark, if its a dist, pull the cap and see what kind of shape it is in, no corrosion, water, oil or anything should be there, if it looks good, have someone turn the motor over to make sure the rotor is spinning, if not, your cam is not driving it, so thats a broken shaft or timing chain
coil packs, start testing the pack for power, if no power keep going back withe the wires to the relays, sometimes they get hot and have a intermitten problem at first then they just go bad, they are in teh fuse box and should be labled
