Question about 1988 Dodge Colt Hatchback
The distributor cap and rotor will not make the electrical system work. It's a round black thing with pencil size wires running out of it, one goes to each spark plug. You might check the fusible link by the battery, the battery terminals etc. Check to see (when the ignition switch is off) if when you remove a battery cable and retouch it to the post that you get a tiny spark. If so, you have a short somewhere in your electrical system, and that will have to be fixed before you do anything else.
